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

    Pros

    Good in infrastructure only.

    Cons

    Transport facility is more than worst in pune,they cut large amount from your salary and provide nothing in return.

    Lot of politics within the organization. You wont be appreciate if you do work, most important a skill of doing nothing is important to grow in syntel.

    Hike time ,you wont get any hike or increment, even you may get 0%hike in annual hike.

    Syntel do layoff(firing of resource) in bulk every year at random(no past work tracking of employee, its just like lottery your name appears you will be out of syntel next day), so worst for those who are experienced and trainee because even the fresher becomes part of layoff employees.

    You wont be allowed to take leaves even you have urgency or medical issues.You will be asked to provide medical certificates as many you can.

    Bad quality and tasteless food in cafeteria

    Many more.....

    Advice to Management

    Shut down you company since the way people are being layoff there will not be much employee stay with you.

    Do open a marriage farm in syntel gdc pune campus , turnover will be more than 1billion dollar that you have achieved recently.
