    I have been working at Syntel full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Offshore - Nice place and more fun. Depends on what project you are working and how knowledge the PM has about his project. Always clients are right. There is insecurity after recent layoff. Onsite - Easy to get Onsite offer. No rotation like other companies.

    Cons

    Offshore: No technical training and depends on client environment to be trained on new technologies. No advance lab to learn new technology. Company spend money in hiring new candidates but never train the internal resource. Onsite: Resource should be ready to change location frequently and never get long term project. No GC filing.

    Advice to Management

    Spend money in Technical training Get long term project at onsite File Green Card

    I worked at Syntel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not much work, good work life balance. Salary is ok according to market rates.

    Cons

    Cheap quality of co workers and management. Whatever you have experienced and learnt you will forget as there is no quality or good work. Cheap and worst relocation policy and benefits if you are joining in usa. Small company never aspire to become better and earn good reveneue. No gueantee if projects will end in next 10 days. Managers also dont know till when the project is. Confusing performnace appraisal process. Intentionally made confusing so that people dont demand promotion or good rating.

    Advice to Management

    Sell this company. Merge with a bigger company . Only in that way Syntel will grow and earn some revenue.
