    Technical Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Syntel in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I joined Syntel in US at Chicago for technical architect position, it was a two step interview process which was purely on specific domain (in my case Insurance) and then offer was rolled out. The job as well as client was very good learning experience and Syntel stuck to his promises (largely due to my reporting manager). So if your rapport with reporting manager is good, you will have a very good time in this company.

    Interview Questions
    • Technical design questions such as Estimate for Agile projects, Agile project structure etc.. were few frequently asked questions for PM.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations were offered except relocation benefits.
