Former Employee - Tech Lead

I worked at Syntel full-time (more than an year)

Pros

1) Can grow within Syntel, if you are good in politics and maintain good relations with managers
2) May be slightly better compensation then other Indian IT companies

Cons

1) No Work-Life balance. If you are good in your work, you'll be considered as a robot
2) No processes. You'll end up frustrated dealing with HR, visa, finance or any other support teams
3) I rarely found professionalism, even with senior managers. You'll be humiliated several times.
4) There are plenty of people sitting at roles like architect and designer, who does not even know basics of architecture/design. You'll get frustrated working with such people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1) Please start treating empoyees as educated professionals and not labor
2) Don't promote undeserving people to higher roles, just because you have nobody else to take that position
