Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Mumbai (India)

I worked at Syntel full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

1. Opportunity to work at Client Side on Onsite locations
...that's about it!!!

Cons

1. Not a employee-centric company
2. No growth
3. Poor salaries
4. No company Vision
5. Poor training
6. Worst Management ever.
7. Managers = Ego
8. Poor employee treatment by HR
9. High iteration
10. Has consistently missed company goals in the past 8 years

I am not taking any kind of vendetta here, I have worked for this company for 8 years!! And I know everybody from top to bottom.

    Current Employee - Senior Project Lead in Pune (India)
    Current Employee - Senior Project Lead in Pune (India)

    I have been working at Syntel full-time (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.
