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

Pros

Some of Syntel`s client are large Multinationals so employees get good exposure to the market.

Cons

Syntel is just another body shopping company so there is not much to learn and grow technically. Management is poor and treat developers as construction workers.

Advice to Management

Give respect to techies. Don`t expect developers to do sales job. Hire business students sales.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Syntel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing, None, Zero, Nil, Null

    Cons

    1. Horrible offshore team, 4 fresher’s & 1 experienced guy.
    2. They don’t keep up the promise on GC processing, Syntel never ever going to do GC processing for their employees
    3. Director’s & Account managers are dumb, they don’t have any clue on client’s business.
    4. If you work hard and deliver the project then management doesn’t have time to appreciate your work, but when if there are any little delay’s on project then they will escalate it to higher level & keep lot of pressure on employees
    5. No professionalism while dealing with clients, still got struck in Indian vegetable bargaining business.
    6. Less pay with minimal benefits, a janitor can earn more than a project lead. Less than 2% hike, even if you work your ass off nights & weekends around the year

    Advice to Management

    Give some respect to employees & their families

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Nothing, they have no idea on what they are doing. They take on multiple projects with no resources at offshore. Offshore is nothing but freshers who have no drive. I have never seen a company with such high attrition rates in US.
    Managers have no idea on what is going on. Promotions are based on how much hell you can raise. Most work results in late nights and production delays.
    The only good thing that happened was that I could make some really good friends.

    Cons

    Everything.
    Greencard- They do not process Greencards. Even if the HR assures you. Even the top managers have their greencards under processing.
    Work-You will be working late nights and early mornings to see all your work go down the drain.
    Medical Benefits-It is a total sham. You have a $10,000 out of pocket limit. So if you have any medical problems you end up paying out of your pocket. It is not a 20$ co-pay scheme but a high deductible plan.
    Visa Processing-HR is totally useless. No support during Visa processing. They do transfers only on normal processing and charge employees for premium.
    Absolutely no transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Eat only what you can bite. The larger IT companies have a different tradition and work culture. Change the game when you play with the big fish.
