    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Pune

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

    Pros

    Office is good Appraisal cycle is long- but everyone gets hike..!! No pressure as such

    Cons

    There is a need for smart young techies and new ideas for the company. The older generation is stuck with manual work style here. Hence, there is no learning, no boost for developing any skills nor growing. Every suggestion needs a long approval. Entire day people just draft emails and take some or the other printouts. Lots of administrative work only for everyone. Fun actives is fine but please understand even... Indian companies now have flexible timing & dress code than strict formal dress code.

    I worked at Syntel Telecom full-time

    Pros

    Great Relationship & bonding among the older guys. You get a homely environment. An awesome CEO & a dynamic VP.

    Cons

    If you want a raise, please bring an offer letter & get it!! Else you keep begging, one day you will definitely get it. Pathetic & spineless HR & a horrible COO. No processes in place when it’s about handling employee grievances- you have to face the management’s wrath & the HR won’t help.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people who have given their blood, sweat & tears for growing the company.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Syntel Telecom full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very good life work life balance (work 9.30 to 6 for most employees). Work culture is good(changes department wise). Value of opinions (They pretend so). Work exposure for beginners. Good for learners if you get into a good project. Once you get something to do, you stick to it. Event celebrations.

    Cons

    Slow as snail (A new water bottle request is fulfilled after a month - This is just example, Applicable to every department along with management). Saturday working. Limited business scope. Very less package for freshers. Your value suddenly increases in one night once you decide to leave. Interdepartmental disputes like "Thats not my job", communication barriers, etc.

    Advice to Management

    There's much more to do other than EPABX. World will soon establish colonies on MARS. Where are we?

    I have been working at Syntel Telecom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work culture,decent brand,support from seniors,timely payment of salaries

    Cons

    No proper structure,Not a great brand as compared to others in telecom,Pay not so good as compared to industry standards(one main reason y people don't consider long term career here),Not a good presence in B2B segment as its mainly a channel driven company and presence into SMEs.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to create a strong branding for which lot of marketing activities has to be carried out(spend heavily in marketing),effective sales training needs to given to field guys,need to revamp the compensation structure mainly for sales team(currently its pathetic),Need to lay down clear cut structures and policies which are long lasting and don't change every fortnight,
