    Medical policy more than that i don’t find much
    For fresher hope this will be good company in terms of learning things

    Cons

    Still working on 17 years back application
    Teams like Roaming Fraud protection need good Managment. More over people from other states they won’t accept to work in their team
    No growth for people under India GM.Atleast for freshers
    Salary is not to market for people working in hyderabad but expects more revenue from same people
    Very good thing in Roaming Fraud team is if you are Alcohol lover you will get flexible leaves and awards as well
    Just to be partner in drinking with manager you will be promoted very soon

    Managment will not consider advices infact they will give you advice to change organisation

    I have been working at Syniverse full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Let me describe in points

    1. Office space is wonderful.
    2. Facility is wonderful
    3.A kind of good people

    Cons

    1.Low salary according to market
    2.No free food, No free transport, No fun at the workplace, To youngsters and such a boring place to be part of
    3. I have been working as Software Engineer for the good number of years (I know you would question me why do i still work here after so long !! I don't know ..its such bad place for me to be but ) .
    Compensation--Per year I receive the hike of 7/8/9% so total hike on my CTC is to be 2200 per month coz company graph is ultimately going down.
    So total hike I get is 2200 or so and Company transport is not free so charges are now increased to 10% higher and I pay my professional tax and PF gets added so ultimately I received 2200/month =Tranport - PF-Professional Tax so what does employee get working for one whole year? you get nothing!.
    4. We all cross Silk board& Tin factory and struggle in traffic every day. I spend almost close to 3.5 hours in a day. I was a kind of relaxed when we had work from home option and now its removed from policy so the employee would struggle in the traffic jam all day coz company don't trust your employee.
    5.No onsite opportunity for Indian employee because there is no budget but the company still makes the budget for American to visit India and do nothing.
    6. People need to be trained in communication skills -- I am still not sure what does Trainer from Bangalore does.
    I would rate communicate skills of employee - 1/10. You will also forget English while you talk to them.
    7. Often lay off -- They layoff people and again hire new people
    8 Hire young and energetic people to the company.Let outdated people go out. We don't find any young people.
    9.Still old technology and no much of new project.
    10.Every 4 months you get new CEO and he does something and that fails and again someone new comes again same !!!
    Suggestion- You must re-think before being part of this company .

    Advice to Management

    Hire young and energetic people to the company. Let outdated people go out. We don't find any young people.
    Still old technology and no much of new project.
    Every 4 months you get new CEO and he does something and that fails and again someone new comes again same thing
    Educate people in office to talk good english ... I cant hear them talk too
