    Pros

    Very lax/fun atmosphere, can wear literally anything you want to work, great location (Buffalo), excellent PTO policy, good benefits, free parking.

    Cons

    The pay is below average across the board. There is very poor leadership, specifically at the top of the company. Products seems to be on the decline which is resulting in shrinking revenue, layoffs, and general pessimism among investors and employees alike. Financial outlook is grim, and job security is a major concern for anyone currently working at Synacor or thinking about coming on, which is not helping considering all of the talent that has walked out the door one way or the other since April of 2014.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less project manager types, more engineers/developers (Too Many Chiefs, Not Enough Indians). Empower your lower to mid level managers, they're probably your greatest asset. Ditch the 25 cent vending machines, free fruit, catered lunches, and what must be astronomical rent for that building, and use it for better salaries (and not laying off 20% of your workforce). Pretty silly to spend so much money on that stuff when you can barely stay afloat.
