    Pros

    The Company provided a better package than other companies in the market.

    Cons

    No better org structure. The management wanted to make profit any way even if it is wrong by billing the customer incorrectly. The management lacked values and other than the salary the benefits were not good at all when compared to the other companies in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Please have some core values to be followed and provide some good benefits to the employees.

    Pros

    -They have offices all over the country so there are different places you can work.
    -The company has several training opportunities

    Cons

    -Every single day I worked at Syntel, a little piece of my soul withered away and died leaving me a hollow husk of a man
    -Company does not care about you at all. Constantly told me certain things were going to happen for me that ended up not happening
    -HR is incredibly unorganized
    -I could go on and on about how awful my experience has been but I don't want to take up your time. All I will say is that I guaranteed you will hate working here

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring new college grads and stealing their youth
