    Can be good or bad experience - depends in which group you're in. I've had both.

    Advisory Systems Engineer (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsIf you can get into a certain teams, Syniverse can be a superb employer - interesting work, huge challenges, flexible schedules, working from home, good compensation, etc. Overall, the company has been improving most of it's software environment, and seems to have learned a few hard lessons about trying to outsource too much. Under certain superstar VPs, the bonuses can even be generous!

    ConsHowever, there are still big chunks of the company where technical staff are working on big bloated applications, under unimaginative supervisors, using horrible out-of-date tools. There's still an awful lot of electronic forms to get things done (extra disk space added to servers, creating new user accounts, even swapping out a $10 ethernet cable). Mobility from the boring groups to the exciting group is nearly impossible to achieve.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut the bureaucracy. It costs much more than the resources they are trying to manage. Prime example is disk space. Development and production support groups spend countless hours trying to micromanage space, and those hours costs much more than the disks would be cost.

    Appreciative culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Campbell, CA

    ProsI get thanked for doing my job, very friendly culture, people here are genuinely happy. Very bright intelligent employees. When I walk down the halls people meet eyes, smile and greet each other. Friendliest culture I've been in since Amdahl.

    ConsCompany is fiscally conservative, a little tight with money, but that's what got us where we are, a leader in the messaging and roaming industries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe need to keep up with the explosive growth in roaming and messaging. With the new smartphones, traffic will increase dramatically.

    Good opportunities and compensation, high work pressure

    Account Manager (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsFinancially interesting, little cost reduction for global crisis, nice people to work with

    ConsHigh work pressure, differences between geographical locations

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf year after year there's shortage of resources in some fields, then invest to avoid work stress

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
