    Pros

    Good package, Opportunities, Flexible time.

    Cons

    Not so good health benefits

    Advice to Management

    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.

    Pros

    Don't think of much. Only thing is lateral recruit salary at offshore is good.

    Cons

    HR Policies and Management is in the bad shape. Managers think they are the bosses and they can drive the show like they are running their own business. I joined as PM and I reported to PL at offshore. What a pity? Now if they are transferring you to other location then manager will say I don't have budget do not claim too much expenses. Over all HR and Expense claim dept is pathetic. They take months to approve smaller expenses as well. After moving onsite again they took months to approve expenses. And if you are relocating at onshore it is a big curse. you have pay out of pocket expenses as well. For claiming all these you have to fight and literally beg to the finance dept or HR. And at onsite you have to be ready for any role available otherwise go back to offshore. PDAC will give you threats to call back. :-). bcoz of all this I quit Syntel.

    Advice to Management

    Change the HR policies and top level management if you want good growth. I heard one of the speech from CEO when he was in Gurgaon office. And I raised couple of questions. He was unable to answer and he told directly if someone is not liking you can quit and find opportunities outside. From top to middle management needs refinement.
