    I worked at Syntel full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work till you drop, so immense learning scope. Guaranteed onsite but you have to wait couple of years depending on your project

    Cons

    No incentives, life can be mundane if work pressure is not there.
    Salary lowest among contemporaries.
    Regional bias in some locations.
    Talent is not appreciated, u just wait for your turn to get rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spot and recognise hardworking people.
    Give more emphasis to talent than experience

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

    Pros

    Lots of learning
    Role flexibility
    Good growth in niche technology practices
    Good place for ambitious, aspirational people

    Cons

    Low performers play dirty politics to sabotage efforts of high performing individuals
    Rampant regionalism, favoritism
    Retention policy only exists for extremely motivated and high performing people
    Little synergy, lots of squabbling between teams and practices
    Low benefits, incentives, quantum of variable pay always on lower side
    People driven and not process driven

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Processes exist but only to pay lip service
    Scope of retention policy needs to be extended beyond the currently (very few) high performing individuals, keep company profile in mind - service oriented companies need to retain moderate performers as well (in a non-recessive market)
    HR needs to be a lot more receptive
    Provide better benefits, incentives; increase quantum of variable pay
