Synygy – Why Work For Us?

Our Journey: 

undefinedFounded in 1991, Synygy has gone on a wildly fun and exciting journey over the years:

  • from its origins in Analytical Process Outsourcing (APO) with the creation of data-based coaching for individual salespeople,
  • to pioneering the market for Incentive Compensation Management (ICM) software and outsourcing services,
  • to being one of the top two leaders in the Sales Performance Management (SPM) space, and
  • most recently, to creating the innovative, outcomes-rich, agile approach to SPM called "Sales Performance Management as a Service."

Today, Synygy is focused once again on its roots as a professional services firm—with a mission to help our clients transform the way that they manage sales and sales operations—by providing them with agility, innovation, and continuous improvement.

Our Transformation:  

Synygy’s USA headquarters is in a converted power plant along the Delaware River that was last used to generate electricity in 1980 and then laid abandoned for decades. Located in an economic development zone, the site was environmentally contaminated and the once grand, Beaux Arts style building was slated for the wrecking ball.

Synygy’s visionary founder, Mark Stiffler, had a different idea: “We’re moving to an abandoned power plant! Look past the neglected houses. There will be a highway there. Look past the rusted, old machinery. It will be recycled. Look past the dirt and grime. Don’t you see the beautiful architecture? Don’t you see the amazing river views? Don’t you see how it can be transformed?”

Our Approach:  

The historic Chester Power Station was built in 1917 at a time when electricity was innovative and yet came with a level of fear and uncertainty over its ability to transform businesses that were reliably using coal to power their factories. The building’s architecture is along the lines of how banks were designed at the time--with a style that exuded trust and confidence.

The transformation of the building from a power plant to an office and data center is a symbol of the kinds of transformations that we help our clients through—from achieving less than their potential to being able to rapidly and efficiently adapt to change.

Clients:

Synygy has created agile sales and channel organizations for hundreds of the world's largest companies across a variety of industries.

    I have been working at Synygy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The workplace is a lot of fun and although we work really hard, its a great place to find a bunch of friends and some meaningful work. The management is flexible, nice, and you can speak to anyone anytime you want. There is a new President who is smart and advocates for the people without hesitation. I see Synygy as a niche business looking to make its move to dominate in a small SPM space and they keep trying new ways to get there. I don't want to work anywhere else.

    Cons

    There is some on going tension as Synygy tries to figure out how best to compete and get done what it wants done. This has required a ton of change and it is tiring for people. However, at the last company wide meeting we were told the last of the big changes are done and the trajectory for growth is very optimistic. I won't say the last two years have been easy, but I do think they were worth it since we seem to be headed in the best direction yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We could use a bit more training time, but understand you like to learn on the job. I would focus much more on sales and marketing...the rest of the organization is well run

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Synygy.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview was pleasant and predictable (confirming career experience, etc.). Was very shocked by the logic/math/general knowledge assessment. They only allowed 25 minutes to complete. I have been out of the college atmosphere since 1998, could not remember some of the math logic. I probably scored poorly - did not get invited to the next round. Still concerned that if that is a major factor in their assessment for sales and business development, they are missing out on a wealth of talented sales and bus dev professionals.

    Interview Questions
    • it was an algebraic word problem (how will this type of skill lead to success in sales or business development?) Definitely needed for engineering but for sales, no!   Answer Question
