    Pros

    Gives you immense opportunities to work and gain expertise in your domain.

    Syntel has recently started looking after its employees. HR policies are being brought up to match the market.

    With new top management, things are looking better than previous years.

    Cons

    No work ethics when it comes to project work. You'll have to slog on most occasions.

    Salary pay is amongst the lowest in the market.

    Bad resource allocation and talent recognition. You'll easily feel how Syntel follows "Praise the average" concept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to invigorate zeal for market competition. Well looked-after employees can be big assets in long run.
