Worst management ever.
Last week americna express and syntel relationship manager came to houston location and called us all Monkeys and Donkeys, Also he openely admitted that the hardest working ppl wil be screwed in annual reviews twice or thrice and if you still stick with company then you will get a raise. Well this guy is companys motivational SPEAKER !!! God save'em ,Well that did it and I put my resignation the same day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please have managers review by the teams they are maanging -there is brutal abuse of power by intimidation and threats with female employees pls take action .
Please respect all of your employees not just "Managers"
Please dont import that 'JI SAAB' Mentality form India here to west
Manager should manage the Projects/Programs not Boss around showing his power.
Please put qualified ppl in manager level not because they are from india and you are good friend of him.
Dont always ask employees to do everythign for you - give something in return to them .

    I worked at Syntel

    Pros

    My direct boss was great to work for but he left due to senior management's people philosophies, I am still in touch with him he basically said I can not let you execute the sales strategy, you will fail we have to think differently

    Cons

    Can not trust senior management, cut throat culture, not organized, their channel partner model was take as many leads but do not give back

    Difficult to find information, new hire orientation is minimal, consultants are not treated as people ,more as a commodity. the sales people actually compete against each other.

    Takes adavantage of the Indian consultants and delays the process of getting their green cards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people, they are your greatest assets

    Pros

    they do not layoff. they will pay bench salary for months if the bench strength is low (this is esp. for US employees). you can aspire to rise to leadership roles. they are improving in magement capabilities and trying to catch up with tier 1 indian outsourcers in corporate management. they sponsor technical and management certifications. they follw CMM process in project execution.

    Cons

    relocation assistance should be improved. their immigration team need to be revamped to stem the number of visa rejections and other problems. medical insurance for US employees leaves a lot to be desired. salary of deputed employees need to increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    bharat desai should get more involved in the day to day management. he should vist employees more frequently through townhalls. should recruit from top tier engineering and management colleges. they have missed out on growth opportunities during the 90's by not being aggressive so need to do better now.
