    I worked at Syntel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Leadership management and HR are supportive but you have to be in touch of them.
    Lots of Onsite opportunities for long term and as well as short term. Pune campus is awesome in rainy season. for trainees or campus hire, its a good one to explore the skill in various technologies. Good company for vertical employees like SOG, SAP...
    They know how to deal with experienced people...

    Cons

    Sandwich policy for leaves, No schedule for bench people. For freshers, it could be like jumping from one technology to another in very frequent manner but you can deny for that as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something for bench people.. utilize them for cross training or can use them as a trainer for freshers (if experienced)
