    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Pune (India)

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

    Pros

    Talwade campus is beautifully located.
    Transport facility is good.

    Cons

    No growth for any aggressive Manager.
    To save your job, you have to be a part of untold syndicate.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to Management because they have intentionally kept a carrot of 1 billion dollar revenue since 2013. Have you reached now in 2017 ? You will never reach. Creative human has emotion but capital doesn’t have any emotion; people work with the emotion to create wealth, organization sells it for revenue. You are burning wealth creator.

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

    Pros

    1) Leave policy.
    2) Onsite opportunities.
    3) You can learn a lot in first 2-3 years.

    Cons

    1) Internal politics like any other work place.
    2) Manager driven process. No communication between HR and employee.
    3) Preference given to local people in appraisal.

    Advice to Management

    Get feedback from employees frequently. HR and employee relationships should be healthy rather than hr threatening employee.

    Layoff should be done in a professional manner. Ground level analysis should be done before laying off an employee. Leads and managers should not be decision makers to remove an employee from team. They may use it for their personal/local/region advantage.

    Employee supporting facilities are worst. Right from transport, cafeteria, bus conditions, washrooms.Way behind the industry trends and technologies. Hike is bad. Mid level management are not smart and techy enough. Like a college. No professional dressing sense. I made a bad decision. Hope I save the one who ready it

    Advice to Management

    Please gear up and dive into technology trends. Renovate your campus buildings or at the least the cafeteria and washrooms.
