I have been working at Syntel full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Growth is good only if you have sensible manager and belong to a good account.
If you are lucky may get an onsite opportunity quickly.
Client exposure can be good

Cons

Higher Management does not have a direction or the skill/capabilities to carry the organization forward
Treats IT like a BPO
Appraisals are a sham and depends entirely on your relationship with the manager
No training plans neither technical or soft skills.
Dearth of skilled technical resources
Positive aggression missing for increasing customer base or even retaining existing customers
Processes are on paper only.
Not a single employee friendly policy

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get yourself trained on how to make an organization sustain and grow and motivate sub-ordinates to contribute and not treat them like slaves.

    Pros

    Nice work life balance,Good onsite opportunities,good transport facilities, For an entry level person, if you show dedication and work hard,you will grow.

    Cons

    Compensation is not as per the market standards for freshers and yearly appraisals are also not good for freshers which makes financial growth difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internal Training which is conducted every month should focus on newer technologies.Current training focuses on old technologies and the calender keeps on repeating.
