    I worked at Syntel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good campus and good synfit area to play badminton.

    Cons

    They can through you out any time without any reason So no Job Security at all, it happened with 3-5 thousand people in 2015 and 2017.
    If u have "X" technology they will provide you "Y" technology and that is forcefully and by this way they will make you actually NOKAR or you can say Jokar.
    Large % of fresher put into manual testing and after 2-3 year they become waste for IT industry So no outside JOB So be careful freshers.
    Not at all employee friendly, HR and Higher management treat you like a puppet simply.

    Advice to Management

    Dont want to give any advice because they will not change i know.

    I have been working at Syntel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Drop facility by car, westren side pickup, casual wear is now allowed.

    Cons

    They dont allow cell phones to kpo employees it literally feels like jail, they make us work for around 13 _14 hrs without any extra allowances, they dont even provide leaves for biggest indian festival diwali that is the biggest con, you will feel like you are trapped in office for 9 hours as you just have to work also they dont allow surfing on pc if you get some spare time, another biggest con i realised in my vertical is they dont provide proper trainings to new employees(i was lucky though), people are so stuck up in their own work pressure they dont have enough time to provide training, they initially infomed that there would be picnics every quarter buy it was once in 8 months and much more cons this company has i dont have much words...apart from this one more they dont provide proper hikes, this year it was lowest hike in the years it has made everyone upset.

    Advice to Management

    Allow mobile phones, innovate some direct review system for employees,

    You might get onsite opportunity because of less no. of employee.

    Cons

    last 3 years 3 major lay off.
    Management is of no use.Unable to handle their current clients So Imagine how they get the new client.
    Started within the same time with infosys and look where they stands.
    Lack of talents reason is those who are going for hiring they don't know much so how they hire the talents.

    Sell the company.
    You haven't done anything till now.
    And please don't blame your employee for your failure.
