    Pros

    This is the place for one who seeks to learn new technologies, means you will get various options to update yourself.
    All who have more than 3yrs of experienced will get onshore opportunity. Work quality is really good.

    Cons

    Its on you to maintain work-life balance, you will get as much work as you want. If you are waiting to get some work in a team, you should not wait to get it. You have to continuously ask for it otherwise after some months you will see yourself in same situation. Don't look for any kind of increment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should continuously check that all the members in a team are getting any work or not. Otherwise they eventually get bored and leave.

    I worked at Syntel full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I had to think 10 mins to write pros about this company Except the fact they process your visa at a very early stage of career I dont see any other pros however Onshore pay is also in terms of peanuts!

    Cons

    Very poor management, no work life balance. Highly experienced and skilled people are treated in a unfair way. Advice to others is to avoid this company unless you dont have any other choice. I regret spending almost 9 years with this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be kind to the people who have stayed long and dont bais based on where a candidate hails from! If you treat employess like humans you will win any projects from any other competitior.
