    Dont join in USA

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou will get your salary delayed by 10 days but you will get it.

    ConsUS hires are treated bad by all staff as they earn more money. Very bad health insurance. Too much politics, people go to an extent to sabotaging projects to prove they are valuable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue the resources who deliver, try to reduce politics. Try to eliminate Syntel Inc and LTD differentiation of employees. Inc Employees are treated as second class citizen.

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

    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

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