Need to work on Work/life balance and Benefits
Test Lead (Current Employee), Memphis, TNMay 13, 2015
Pros: Still searching for it
Cons: The Work-Life Balance went to toss
I'm working with Syntel for past 10 months. If you are lateral joinee for Syntel & coming from Tier 1 level company; then you caught in wrong jump.

There is no firm decision from higher management & – more... keeps agreeing the unrealistic targets. Hence almost everyone suffers due to the same. If we are talking about more than decade partnership with Client; there you should be in a position to say firmly Yes/No as & when required. It's being missing & employee's get impacted with the same. – less
