    Pros

    High quality coworkers - professionally and personally
    Great culture
    Dynamic, growing company
    Excellent management
    Family-friendly work arrangements
    Fun place to work
    Interesting and challenging assignments
    Opportunities to enhance your skills and work closely with people from other disciplines
    The Bridgewater office is very nice - well lit, nice cubes, open floor plan

    Cons

    Onboarding is a little rough; it's a bit chaotic until you get oriented
    Seemingly small changes can take longer than expected and involve many, many people
    Things change quickly, which can be disorienting if you are not used to working in fast paced environments
    Although they have small exercise rooms in NJ and Bethlehem, you'll probably be too busy to use them - and they're crowded at peak times like lunch time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Start up feel. World class customers. You can have a big impact. Great industry to be in - communications and mobile apps will continue to grow.

    Sometimes the work can be very challenging and the deadlines are demanding. The company is growing aggressively, but needs to find the right balance

    Continue to invest in innovation

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment, which offers up great career growth opportunities and a lot of visibility of deliverables and effort.

    Work on high-impact projects with the largest organizations in the world.

    Cons

    Your work load will require a ton of extra hours. Expect late nights.

    You will be given tasks outside of your pay grade and title, but shouldn't complain about that much because that is how you grow.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, especially the way its positioning itself in the mobile space.

    Cons

    Not much traction seems to be given to internal innovation projects. Most growth in recent years has been on the back of acquisitions. Need to focus on organic growth.

    Pros

    Exciting, fast growing company where working smarter and harder will get you noticed. There are some good ideas that have come out of Synchronoss. The focus on timely delivery goes a long way to keeping customers, and expanding the relationship as more of a partner than a vendor. That is a recipe for continued success.

    Cons

    Going through some (to be expected) growing pains making the transition from start up to mid-market, publicly traded company. Long hours and frequent heroics are pretty much required.

    Advice to Management

    Come down from the tower occasionally!
