Company Culture

Can't believe a word that they say. They make you feel beneath them. They try to anyway.

Support from management

Management has no idea what they are doing. This was the worst company I've ever worked for.

Freedom to work independently

Micro manage? They tell you to do something, train incorrectly then micro manage till one just wants to quit.

Internal Communication

These people recruited me, after I started working they were still trying to recruit me for the same job.

Career Development

No room for advancement.

Overall compensation for your work

Not competitive at all.

Company Image

Trifling.

Job Security

No job security whatsoever.

Suggestions for improvement

  • This company needs to learn how to tell the truth for starters. Second they need to learn how to effectively build teams. Their management needs training on ethics and how to be more efficient.

What I like about the company

Nothing at all

What I dislike about the company

The managers, the filthy break room, the lies they tell over and over and over. No job security, micro managing, low compensation. They have employees doing medical coding that are NOT certified. They advertise the job as data entry but it's actually medical coding.

Support from management

Management is non-existent while you are on a project. Instead, you will interact more with your on-site supervisor/manager. If you ever are rolled off a project though management will heavily pressure you to relocate and threaten firing you if you don't.

Internal Communication

Communication is a constant issue within this company. As many employees in the management side are stationed in India there is a large turn around time for responses to questions and language differences also make it hard to understand sometimes what is being asked.

Overall compensation for your work

Will not compete with other companies and has a very top-down approach to performance reviews.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More onshore management/HR. Deal with relocate or your fired issues. Build out programs for benched employees to provide value to Syntel while not on a project.

What I like about the company

Willing to hire straight out of college and provides on-the-job training

What I dislike about the company

Predatory management practices bordering on maybe-illegal. No reimbursement to you for relocation for example, instead you are forced to pay them even though they claim they will reimburse you the moving expenses. In order to progress to higher pay scales you are required to use your personal time to learn new technologies; just going a good job in the project is not usually enough for a scale upgrade.
