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

    Pros

    - A very detailed process oriented environment. You can learn a lot of documentation, project management, timeline management skills much faster than any small organisation.

    Everything like attendance marking, employee reviews, project hours etc are in a digital format so there is transparency in deep.

    - Whatever policy is made it is for everyone, so not sparing any special one.

    - Meal is available in house, though most of time it is very bad.
    - Appraisals on time.
    - (CEO) is a very knowledgable IT Professional

    Cons

    - Waterfall method, comm'on its old and not works. Specially for tiny and tight timeline projects.

    - No breathing space, Its ok to be focused but too much strictness can kill the employee’s rights of expression.

    - No cafeteria, tea is served on desk very much like it was done in 90’s movies. Food served is very bad and you cannot opt out as money is taken away from your salary forcefully.

    - Too much bureaucracy and spying of employees, it is like being in north Korea. You cannot access anything​ i.e. mail, social media, news, music etc.

    - Always very angry boss, is always a bad place to be. HR team is always finding news ways to harass employees and achieve company goals forcefully.

    - Top management & project managers are least skilled & not able to help/guide employees. On the name of help doing dictatorship work.

    - Not updating to current industry requirements, following age old software development methods. This can stop the growth of budding carrier of new joiner.

    - Very bad chairs & infra, looks like it is property dealer's office in nehru place.

    Advice to Management

    - Please stop filing legal cases to employees trying toleave you. There are lots of people looking to job why unnecessarily harass some?.

    Also please stop abusing and beating the employee.
    - Adopt new work methods like agile or Lean UX or anything.
    - Change entire project management they are just eating synapse’s money and in return doing silly stuff.
    - Have a cafeteria and tea should not be calculated 2 times day. Commo'n its not a jail. Open up environment let the employees have bit of fun, Its too suffocating for employees right now.

    Another example give salary slips to employees every month please its there right.

     Let them recive or make call during work hours if any.

    Pros

    Did not find any pros here.

    Cons

    Like many others I was an intern (dot net trainee) at SynapseIndia. HR Lurked us saying that they provide Great training and hire Trainee as a permanent employee, they have a lot requirements and so and so.
    They take 15K INR and provides 3 month training which extends to 4 months.
    And it’s just 2 hour/day training.
    Once training is finished they don't know who you are, they don't even reply to your emails or phone calls.
    They are just spoiling your time and money.

    Advice to people new Trainee/Student

    - Don’t waste your time and money here. there are 1000 times better institute who provides better training and full placement support.
    - These people are here just for your money.

    And yes, People wondering how they have good Glassdoor Rating?
    well, Half of positive review here are fake and they are just posted to maintain the Rating above 4.
    Don’t be surprised if you see few new reviews with 5 star rating after this review is posted.

    They even asked us to post fake review on their website.

    Advice to Management

    - Don’t spoil anyone’s career at least not fresher’s.
    - Stop posting these fake reviews
    - And last but not least, pick up the goddamn phone.
