ProsThey value human potential. Try to provide growth opportunities to people. Salaries are competitive. Good performances are recognized. Lots of onsite opportunities.

ConsDo not invest in buffer resources. Many accounts struggle due to non-supply of resources in time. Recruitment process is not rigorous leading to bad resources coming in.

Not a people oriented company

Sales (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Syntel

ProsMy direct boss was great to work for but he left due to senior management's people philosophies, I am still in touch with him he basically said I can not let you execute the sales strategy, you will fail we have to think differently

ConsCan not trust senior management, cut throat culture, not organized, their channel partner model was take as many leads but do not give back

Difficult to find information, new hire orientation is minimal, consultants are not treated as people ,more as a commodity. the sales people actually compete against each other.

Takes adavantage of the Indian consultants and delays the process of getting their green cards

Advice to Senior ManagementValue your people, they are your greatest assets

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
