    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Buffalo, NY

    I have been working at Synacor

    Pros

    Free health benefit plan available and good for most people
    25 cent vending machines
    bi weekly Developer lunches to discuss various development related items
    casual dress code

    Cons

    Unwillingness to look at technologies that have not been "Approved" by a tech council that is not representative of all of the groups of the company. People seem to get promoted at random. There are select people that have most of the knowledge of a specific product and instead of training more people, the one person just does everything because it "has to be done now".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify the knowledge. Let the employee's know what is going on. Let people explore new technologies without forcing them to be "the synacor way".

    Pros

    The people that work there are smart and enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    • Middle management is mostly lacking in management abilities and upper management doesn't seem to listen to anyone below the inept middle managers

    • Morale is constantly low and little to nothing is done to remedy it

    • Some positions within the company have no career paths and offer no growth or movement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm finished giving the management of Synacor advise. They've ask for it, I've given it, but tehy do nothing in return.
