poor Infrastructure

Senior Project Leader (Current Employee)
Pune

I have been working at Syntel full-time for more than 3 years

Prosopportunity to grow fast for people who are dedicated and work hard

ConsPeople who work are overloaded with work. Project management is not efficient

Advice to Senior ManagementResource management and training should be done efficiently. People are only trying to get H1 and go to US without actually working on their skills. There should be stringent guidelines on who can apply for work permit based on past performance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
