Brand Value I heard that Patni has good brand value
Career growth and onsite opportunities? one among top 3 IT companies in this regard
How is work environment and how efficient is the communication b/w teams or department? In general work environment is informal and good, however it depends on the kind of project and PM J.
Work pressure/Work – life balance. Pressure… Again…depends on project. I would say not very much different from other IT companies. Work – Life balance – one can achieve it if he/she is very serious about it
Satisfaction with salary and quality of work. Salary – Its not on par with market value. An exception is that appraisals in 2007 have been very good.
Quality of work – depends on the domain, kind of project(development/maintenance/support).Patni has mostly maintenance projects.
What type of work they do: Product development, Services etc. Or if mix of these then what at percent?Not sure about exact percent but basically Patni is into Services. May be a bit of product development stuff.
Job security. Better than any other IT company in India.
Some positives and negatives of the company.
+ves – Job Security, Onsite opportunities, Good responsibilities at an early stage in one’s career, robust processes, Good Training Programs
-ves – SALARY, Not enough transparency into appraisal process, recruitment process not rigid(no where do you find a required % of 55 for freshers J)
IF you are not keen about money Patni is the place for you.
