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

    Pros

    Good salary if you get hired in the US.

    Cons

    Management is extremely unaccountable. Zero integrity to the project delivery.
    Literally no employee perks. very less employee morale.
    No scope for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Management should take care of the employees . There is absolutely no regards for employees' growth or aspirations. Resource management is almost a joke. Company should change from a money minded outlook to excellence oriented perspective.
