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

    Pros

    If 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!

    Cons

    However, 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company where technical staff are working on big bloated applications, under unimaginative supervisors, using horrible out-of-date tools.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 ManagementAdvice

    Cut 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.

    I have been working at Syniverse

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Company 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 ManagementAdvice

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