    Pros

    I was very happy when I joined the company ......After some days I came to know at what class Syntel is all about...It is good place for the people who don't want to learn anything new ..but want to stick to what govt employees do ...If you really want to grow don't choose Syntel for you...Lack of professionalism , transparency is not there in promotions ...

    Cons

    Company is not employee friendly ....some teams are working more then 11 hours a day ...This is how employees are getting the treatment.

    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)

    Good place to start career & great place to join as laterals

    Pros

    As a fresher Syntel gives you a great platform to start your career. Freshers are generally entrusted here with important responsibilities compared to other companies. Laterals find it a bit easy to come into Syntel & and are handsomely paid. Syntel is also not a company that looks harshly at its average performing employees. Syntel comes across as a company trying to prove itself in a highly compitetive IT market.

    Cons

    Syntel gives oppurtunity to display talent but strangely fails to respect the talent and award them good compensations. High performing people don't get any incentive to keep repeating their performance. Employee performance management isn't robust. No importance or stress on employee and his/her satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees & trust them better. Try to retain your performing talent and groom them for leadership roles.
