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

    Pros

    If you can make your manager happy, they'll sponsor your H-1b visa and give you an onsite opportunity.

    Cons

    They bring people from India on very low salary. Management is not good in terms of retaining employee. They also lie to their clients. Syntel has attrition problem that leaves a senior resource to work with trainees and get the work done. Attrition also causes to lose knowledgable resources.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to retain your employee strength.
