Pros

Good growth opportunity if you know key folks in the company :-)

Cons

Not good for US based employee. Aggressive sales team gets the deal but delivery team can't attract or retain good employees at offshore. Attrition is killing the company

Advice to Management

Better scrutiny of offshore based Sr. management (VP & President); need more efforts in branding Syntel in US. Have to get more customer, can't rely on 5-10 odd customers for growth every year

    Pros

    Salary may seem little better compared to similar IT consulting firms like TCS, Wipro and Infy but similarity stops there as medical benefits, 401 K and ESOPs are NONE. Medical coverage starts when you have spent $5000 from your pocket.

    Cons

    - No Employee stock option - Little or no salary raise - No career growth - Medical benefits worst in the industry - No contribution to your 401 K - High attrition rate at offshore

    Advice to Management

    You can never be a Billion dollar company by low employee morale. Learn the concept of profit sharing with employees from Infy.


  2. Great company to learn & work with
