Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Syntel full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Onsite opportunity.
If you get into right team (small team I should say), opportunities are better.
High cash component (% of CTC) wrt other companies.

Cons

Huge hierarchy. Slow growth.
Policies are not so transparent, even undefined at a lot of places and HR works real slow in getting answers for open issues.

Advice to Management

Transparency in policies is a must. A closed eye towards employee issues is the biggest reason of attrition.
