Disapproves of CEO

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 Management

Value your people, they are your greatest assets

    Disapproves of CEO

    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 Management

    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.

    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
