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

Pros

* Overall good systems put in place in terms of Support Functions, Trainings
* STEP and SCALE initiates are good systems, however the actual use is very minimal

Cons

* No Direct Connect with Leadership Team, despite insights, Letters, But no hearing or fair play
* STEP and SCALE are in Theory, Practically Have seen it fail in several in Engagements, Instead of Performance, Preference rules :(
* HR Leaders - As expected evaluate performance based on 1 feedback of 365 days with dotted line manager
* Be careful about actual JD and the one put into Hard Copy, 99% chances are that it will vary.
* Babu culture ( Keep your Manager Happy and you will get the best , Always please Manager instead of working Actual Facts Figure Finance details, Risk Ignorance, etc. )

Advice to Management

* Please make STEP more meaningful, provide feedback in Quarters instead of all of sudden Appraisals without discussions and release of ratings.
* Please use 360 degrees rating system and publish to Syntelligence ( Intranet ) including Managers, Leaders.
* Give Mid-Senior Management the confidence of Trust, Integrity and Reward N Recognition culture for the ones who highlights RISKS, Bring New Customers
* Please Hire with exact Roles Responsibilities Designation Band Grade, Don't deviate once resource (s ) join and put them under Practice instead of Delivery ( specialized domain area )
* BU Heads Client Partners and Delivery Directors should all treat employees equally irrespective of Cast Creed Religion or Color. There is strong feeling amongst many Senior Level Managers on this.
* Please don't foster culture of favorism, Reward and Appraise on Performance, Feedback, Values instead of Personal Conflicts coming between BU Head and Sr Managers
