I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Atos-Syntel (Boston, MA (US)) in August 2018.
I was a recent CS graduate looking for full time employment at the time of my interview. Their representative was very friendly and helpful during the phone screen. However, you and I are both too good for a position here.
Here are the main points:
- Ignore whatever buzzwords like "software" or "developing" they throw in to get your interest. The position is a full-time consultant.
- For recent graduates in their program, the salary is $50K, non-negotiable and no guarantee of a raise or career growth. This is well below industry standard and very low for a full time position in the Boston area. It was explained at the in-person interview that constantly going "above and beyond" is the only way to get a raise, but it is still not guaranteed, even if you spend all year staying extra hours or going the extra mile.
- I botched many of the technical interview questions and still got an offer to get on board with their program. Though I appreciate it, it demonstrates that they don't value their consultant hires and just want to funnel kids into their company and make money. Most of the time in software, you can't get any questions completely wrong at the interview (I've heard this from a variety of people in the field, and learned this since).
- There is no room for career growth. They want to integrate you as a consultant, you won't ever move up to manager, just look at the other reviews. No matter how hard you try, you're dispensable.
Bottom line: if you just got a technical degree, you are worth more than $50K a year in the Boston area. I recommend you keep reviewing your course material and wait for a better offer unless absolutely necessary!
