Average Place to work at
Project Lead (Current Employee) –  Northbrook, ILJune 11, 2017
If you are existing employee, don't expect hike. The company has gone down since 2007 when I started working. It was quite an excellent place to start a career but later on things got deteriorated. Current management in most of cases were the developers in same company. No new fresh ideas and no external experience has created problems for organisation.

HR has gone rude and couple of layoffs from last few years has added to the issues company have.
Pros
Insurance
Cons
Appraisal System, benefits which are none

Bad place to work
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMay 22, 2017
I would not recommend working here. The company puts you on projects that you are not qualified to work, when you are not able to complete the assignment because of lack of experience they just let you go.
Pros
none
Cons
bad

A Good Company to start off your IT career.
Project Lead (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYApril 16, 2017
If you are fresher and looking for IT work Syntel is nice employer. But once you have decided what you really want to do then you should not stick with this employer. You can use your first three years in hear to learn most technologies you wan to Syntel gives good options in cross technology training. But if you do not want to work on UI and only in backend then Syntel may not be happy. Thats not growth for Syntel.
Pros
Good for start of career
Cons
Not employee friendly.

Contracting mill with poor work life balance
Software Programmer (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZApril 15, 2017
No potential for advancement, few choices as to what you are placed in project wise, low pay for US workers, poor work life balance, Indian coworkers are expected to work crazy hours and so you are too.

Great Pay if you can tolerate it
Technical Specialist (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZApril 8, 2017
Management is very hands-off. Very little effort to help or grow employees. As a contractor, you're expected to know your work. No training given. Training resources are scant.

Time is tracked in several places using cumbersome internet interfaces. You are required to be available 24/7. Meetings are held late at night and late on Friday afternoons. You are expected to learn on your own time after standard work hours.

Non-compete clauses are broad and difficult to work with.
Pros
High pay
Cons
Work life imbalance, no support from management, no access to training

Syntel takes you in knowing nothing, trains you, and then delivers you to a client. Excellent company. They are willing to take chances on people and give them a chance to succeed.
