    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
