    I have been working at Syntel full-time

    Pros

    Syntel is a billion dollar company that works with a lot of large corporations across the globe. Therefore working here gives great experience and allows you to network with a lot of important people.

    Cons

    Almost all upper management left Syntel, worked somewhere, and then came back. It seems like Syntel doesnt like employees to stay longer than 2 or 3 years. also, the HR department is very rude and will hang up the phone if you call them.

    Advice to Management

    Its okay to be an Indian company, but you shpuld be honest. Don't claim that your small office in Troy, MI (which is probablly the size of a closet) is enough justification to call yourself an American business. Why not build a large office building in the States that is similar to the office buildings in Mumbai, Chennai, Pune, etc.?
