    Pros

    there is flexibility . my manager happens to be good and intelligent person and so far my esperience is good. i dont know about the atmosphere in india is, but i have learnt that it is not good. onsite is good

    Cons

    policies are very indianized. syntel takes a lot of time to actually meet customer demands. this is because it does not want to put anyone on bench. anyone who is on bench can be fired. this is not good. the employee may not be on bench because of his/her mistakes. please give an employee appropriate chances to proof his/her worth.

    Advice to Management

    be aggressive with the resourcing and try to manage client demands better otherwise there is no dearth of competetors in the market. syntel takes a lot of time to actually meet customer demands. this is because it does not want to put anyone on bench. anyone who is on bench can be fired. this is not good. the employee may not be on bench because of his/her mistakes. please give an employee appropriate chances to proof his/her worth.
