    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.

    I worked at Syntel (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great 'looking' campuses (Means nothing for the employees, means woow for the customer)

    Top class clients (Means good onsite opportunity and brand value)

    Cons

    - Felt like lower level employees are treated disgustingly different in a bad way.
    - Every process is a headache. Sometimes approvals go all the way to the Senior VP for your minor taxi re-imbursment.
    - A tiny 1000sq ft library for 7000+ employees in Pune
    - If you are good at any automation technology and good at politics this might be a good place for you or else good luck
    - The company is confused where it is heading,the CEO resigned nobody knows for what reason, feels like decisions are dictated by just one person and you know who
    - The employee crowd is definitely insular (Non-Cosmo). Office locations are Gurgaon(majority north Indians), Chennai(majority south Indians), Pune/Mumbai(majority Maharashtrians). If you are among minority in these locations, its very hard to gel and work as team.

    Advice to Management

    Human resource do not communicate well to with employees. Yes, we employees like being pampered with smooth processes and bigger libraries
    Hire mixed crowd at mixed locations to encourage mixed culture

    Pros

    Average/good salary and benefits
    Offer relocation bonus - average -

    Cons

    - Complex and very bureaucratic HR and Operations management
    - Total lack of communication and transparency from lower levels of management to the employees
    - Normally good opportunities and positions will be assigned in a biased way to the closer circle of the managers, despite the skills and competencies of the candidates

    Advice to Management

    Corporate philosophy and values must chance considering the main asset of a consultant company is the people; consultants are humans not only resources to produce money. Company values should be focused to foster an equally inclusive and fair environment and mindset

    I have been working at Syntel full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the verticals are good like Insurance, BNFS and Retail. Good for freshers. Good Onsite opportunities. But nowadays so many H1 holders are in India due to less projects.

    Cons

    Very bad management. Not at all employee friendly. Good leaders have left the company. Poor HR policies and HR staff doesnt know how to talk.

    Advice to Management

    They should retain good talent and right resources. People are leaving because your pay scale is very less compare to other companies at onsite as well as at offshore.
