I have been working at Syntel full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Growth is good only if you have sensible manager and belong to a good account.
If you are lucky may get an onsite opportunity quickly.
Client exposure can be good

Cons

Higher Management does not have a direction or the skill/capabilities to carry the organization forward
Treats IT like a BPO
Appraisals are a sham and depends entirely on your relationship with the manager
No training plans neither technical or soft skills.
Dearth of skilled technical resources
Positive aggression missing for increasing customer base or even retaining existing customers
Processes are on paper only.
Not a single employee friendly policy

Advice to Management

Get yourself trained on how to make an organization sustain and grow and motivate sub-ordinates to contribute and not treat them like slaves.

    Advice to Management

    They should really start working aggressively, to increase its customer base, Its been really almost the same sized company for past 10 years.
    Also the appraisal process needs to be more transparent.
