Pros

They value human potential. Try to provide growth opportunities to people. Salaries are competitive. Good performances are recognized. Lots of onsite opportunities.

Cons

Do not invest in buffer resources. Many accounts struggle due to non-supply of resources in time. Recruitment process is not rigorous leading to bad resources coming in.

Advice to Management

Have more buffer resources. Spend more on Training employees on technical and soft skills.

    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 Management

    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
