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

    Pros

    It's a job, basically a good way to start in the US if you are from India, others need to stay clear.

    Sweatshop environment with all the poor brown folk continuing be subservient to management and usually talk in their native language. Many of them are just waiting for a green card application to escape from this servitude.
    Low caliber management
    No ethics whatsoever
    Not good for non Indians

    Advice to Management

    You guys are a lawsuit waiting to happen. Clean up.

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

    Pros

    Some of the verticals are good like Insurance, BNFS and Retail. Good for freshers. Good Onsite opportunities. But nowadays so many H1 holders are in India due to less projects.

    Cons

    Very bad management. Not at all employee friendly. Good leaders have left the company. Poor HR policies and HR staff doesnt know how to talk.

    Advice to Management

    They should retain good talent and right resources. People are leaving because your pay scale is very less compare to other companies at onsite as well as at offshore.

    I have been working at Syntel (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They will help you move but will tax your relocation when they pay you back. They will try to place on another project when your done with your original project.

    Cons

    The company overall is disorganized and not very trustworthy or loyal to their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest to your employees and don't oversell your employees to your vendors.

    Pros

    My direct boss was great to work for but he left due to senior management's people philosophies, I am still in touch with him he basically said I can not let you execute the sales strategy, you will fail we have to think differently

    Cons

    Can not trust senior management, cut throat culture, not organized, their channel partner model was take as many leads but do not give back

    Difficult to find information, new hire orientation is minimal, consultants are not treated as people ,more as a commodity. the sales people actually compete against each other.

    Takes adavantage of the Indian consultants and delays the process of getting their green cards

    Advice to Management

    Value your people, they are your greatest assets
