    I worked at Syntel full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Gives you immense opportunities to work and gain expertise in your domain.

    Syntel has recently started looking after its employees. HR policies are being brought up to match the market.

    With new top management, things are looking better than previous years.

    Cons

    No work ethics when it comes to project work. You'll have to slog on most occasions.

    Salary pay is amongst the lowest in the market.

    Bad resource allocation and talent recognition. You'll easily feel how Syntel follows "Praise the average" concept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to invigorate zeal for market competition. Well looked-after employees can be big assets in long run.

    Pros

    Great health benefits. I could work from home sometime. I did meet a few new people that were nice. That's all.

    Cons

    Corrupt. Dishonest. Unreliable. Stole from me... never repay relocation costs. System makes it almost impossible to turn in reimbursement. Called me to relocate to PHX yet did not have a job lined up for me. Scary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat employees like cattle...

    Good package, Opportunities, Flexible time.

    Cons

    Not so good health benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should look into providing better Health benefits in US for its deputed and INC employees. Most of the benefits are useless when really required.
