    I have been working at Synaptics full-time (more than a year)


    A ton of technically challenging work available. Very fast and exciting atmosphere, with a good forward-looking business plan. I love every day I come into the office.


    There are a ton of cross-team politics at play which is not outside of the norm for similar companies. It can just become incredibly tedious to be juggling idiotic (and unproductive) workplace politics with the technical aspects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, continue doing what you're doing. It's working great so far!

    After applying via a website I was contacted by an HR rep who scheduled an initial phone interview, followed by 3 seperate phone interviews, then 3 in person interviews.
