    Tech Lead..ETL Developer, USA

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosgood salary. Everything is good until you are on a project.Insurance plan for US hires is good for bachelors..not for family

    ConsLess projects.Once you are out of project..they will force you to join any project even not matching with your profile. They will simply terminate you if you spend more than two weeks on bench.H1B will be screwed up and you have to go back to India.No concept of employing US hires to india.HR just lie at time of recruitment.They never want to co-operate with you to get a new project or at least hold your H1B until you find a new job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTerminating in US can ruin someone's whole US career.Please be respectful to the employees who leave big companies in USA and join you.Your HRs simply lie at time of recruitment

    Worst Company

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee) Pune (India)

    ProsI was very happy when I joined the company ......After some days I came to know at what class Syntel is all about...It is good place for the people who don't want to learn anything new ..but want to stick to what govt employees do ...If you really want to grow don't choose Syntel for you...Lack of professionalism , transparency is not there in promotions ...

    ConsCompany is not employee friendly ....some teams are working more then 11 hours a day ...This is how employees are getting the treatment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
