    I have been working at Syntel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some time back it was a land of opportunities with people able to grow vertically if they had the willingness and the ability. It had been a spring board for people with potential.

    Cons

    I believe, It has lost it's way for some time now

    For a technology company, the senior management is mostly crowded with non-tech who entirely focus on the financials and margins rather than strengthening the foundations of the company's delivery system. It eventually leads to employee discontent with policies falling out of favour for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Empower people and help people with technical strengths grow without the need for them to sacrifice their love for technology.

    AB Initio Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Syntel (London, England) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is slow and has multiple rounds spread over many weeks. The HR you deal with can change anytime so this may cause confusion. Band and salary needs to be negotiated hard. Telephone interview option is available for people located remotely, however this depends on the requirement.
