    I have been working at Syntel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I was very happy when I joined the company ......After some days I came to know at what class Syntel is all about...It is good place for the people who don't want to learn anything new ..but want to stick to what govt employees do ...If you really want to grow don't choose Syntel for you...Lack of professionalism , transparency is not there in promotions ...

    Cons

    Company is not employee friendly ....some teams are working more then 11 hours a day ...This is how employees are getting the treatment.

    Pros

    You can get Onsite opportunity.

    No efforts by management for your growth. If you are on bench and not getting any projects matching your profile then be ready to work on any technology.

    Pros

    Good clients and nothing else, and they are pretty much dissatisfied.

    Cons

    bad - HR policies, no encouragement towards training & personal development, work environment, work policies, no incentives.

    your efforts will never be appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees make an organization, you don't know the pulse of the employee yet.

    I am not sure, how you guys became HR!

    Pros

    Nice campus,
    Good Banking,Insurance,Automotive project

    Cons

    Not good for laterals,
    No good compensation as compared to other companies..only few bugs for over time work
    No value of laterals.
    14-15 hours per day work even office time is 9 to 6
    HR management listen to only higher mgmt...No value for employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should respect to there employee also.
    Should follow give & take...as It takes two to tango...
    Higher Mgmt should support there employee....they are not for use & through
    Onsite team should be supported by there higher mgmt when needed.
    Managers should listen there employee & understand there problem.
