Good for Freshers

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Internal Politics plays a vital role in your career. Completely people driven and not policy driven. Hence, good for freshers who do not have much issues on personal front.

Pros

Pay scale, Paid vacation

Cons

Poor Top Management, People Driven, Internal Politics to the core

No work life balance

Though it has long working hours if you are lucky you can manage personal life or else not. Won't suggest as best place to work but certainly you get to learn a lot.Also salary is very less compared to working for 12 hours

Horrible company

This company is run be goons. They have no respect for individuals. HR is useless. You are at the mercy of your manager. If the client makes a negative remark about you, the company won't stand by you.

Too much Work load.

During my tenure there was too much work load and we had to work for 11 to 12 hours a day for which we were not getting over time.Management was very poor, they don't have to do anything with employees for them only work was priority. Lots of politics in giving awards.

Good place for freshers

Good place for freshers, projects are less compared to other service based companies. Many people will switch after gaining initial experience. Oniste oppurtunities are not in rotational basis.

Pros

Helpful colleagues

Cons

Nasty environment

Good place to start your career out of college

Its a good place to start your career. Syntel gives onsite oppotunities quicker than other IT companies. However, learning and growth is limited. Once you gain experience, start looking for other opportunities.

Pros

Onsite oppotunities

Cons

No growth or career advancement
Was this review helpful?

Not a bad place

Consider this company only as a last resort, just as a place to coast along while you hunt for better opportunities. Spending long years at this company is not worth your time in life.
