    "Project Manager "Test Manager""

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

    Pros

    -Decent health care compared to previous jobs
    -Good way to get into IT (and by good I mean easy to get an offer from Syntel)

    Cons

    -No work life balance (60-70 hours weeks)
    -On top of the work you do for whichever client you're with, Syntel will have more "Syntel" related work which is a complete waste of time
    -No leadership diversity, everyone who is a leader is of the same ethnic descent and nearly all men
    -Poor compensation in comparison to other leaders in industry

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all the unrelated work to the client, it's a waste of time. And if you won't then properly compensate your employees for the extra work.

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

    Pros

    Excellent colleagues and great working atmosphere. Most employees are empowered to take such actions as are necessary to ensure enhanced customer satisfaction. In specialized areas, the Company also has cachet and brand equity with many customers. Human Resources and other support organizations are usually very responsive to employees.

    Cons

    The Company has for a while been dressed up to sell in the PE market. Consequentially there's not a great deal of ongoing investment in the employees of the company. Leadership is conscious of it and is therefore not the quickest to listen to employees and their aspirations.

    Advice to Management

    Employees tend to vote with their feet rather than stay and work out their expectations with Leadership.

    Pros

    Onsite Opportunity, other than that nothing else

    Cons

    You can see the localism
    The salaries are worst
    Work culture is worst
    Whole culture is worst
    You need to slurp the managers to get hike, they are not based on your work ethic
    Finally when you move out they will ask to pay 5Lacs if you resign or else they wont give you the Experience letters

    Advice to Management

    Don't do all these backward stuff, You need to gain your employees by trust and satisfaction not by squeezing them for money.
