    No good project... 4000 employees are laid off in April without any reason... If you don't have any option then join this company... Leave the company after two years if you want good career

    Advice to Management

    No any advice for foolish management of syntel.....total wastage of time

    Pros

    Easy to get visa and good infrastructure in Pune and Chennai. But of course at the cost of salary of their own employees.

    Cons

    You will always be in some or the other bond if you join in India. If you join directly at onsite good to work unless you get some better job.

    Advice to Management

    Do not keep bonds for everything. Employees who worked in your company for 5 years at least give them best treatment than askign them also to sign bond of 5 lakh.

    Pros

    1. If you join at PM level then its good. You can enhance your knowledge as there are NO PROJECTS
    2. PM only sits and do nothing but learn new technology if any reply to RFPs.
    3. Good for fresher

    Cons

    In consulting they give you software engineer designation althouhg you have 8+ yrs of experiance. Very far office. You have to have complete 9 HRS in office. NO PROJECTS at all in Oracle Apps, SAP etc. Those they call project are all small technical work which is all trashed by several companies.
    In short no pipleine, No Projects and nothing to do in office so within 6 months you will get frustrated.
    Also never say Yes for H1B to them. They have bond of Rs. 5Lks for nine months. They just screw your career.
    DO NOT JOIN SYNTEL

    Advice to Management

    -Do some branding specific to Syntel as contusing company
    - Bring minimum 2 projects so that your small strength of (less than 100 consultant) will get billable
    -Change designation for consulting. How can a functional consultant in SAP be a "Software Engineer".
    -Do not lie to candidates and play with their careers!!!!
    LAST be not least:
    If org do not have interest in ERP practice then wind up ERP business. Do not just keep it rolling for few members..!!!! with their big fat salaries.

  11. Good one for fresher and for one who wants to go onshore.

    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 Management

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