I have been working at Syntel full-time

Pros

No pros as such. The only good thing that happened after joining Syntel was that I met very nice people and made many lifelong friends.

Cons

1. Majority of the projects are being driven by handful of talented resources who have stuck with the company for many years for unknown reasons.
2. Favoritism rules.
3. Incompetent people get promotion if they can just stick with the company for minimum number of years irrespective of their contribution or competence.
4. Management accepts humiliating treatment towards their employees from client employees as part of the job and client satisfaction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a new management which can bring radical change in the way Syntel is perceived and their daily operations are carried out. Do what Narayan Moorthy did for Infosys to inspire its employees although that doesn't seem likely to happen with Syntel in foreseeable future.
