I worked at Synapse Product Development full-time for more than a year

Pros

Collaboration is a value, and an expected fact
Brilliant engineers who are creative and know there disciplines
Open office plan where projects are quickly and easily co-located
Wednesday company lunches and Beer:30s

Cons

Just changes management and they are struggling with values that made the company
New management is in an ivory tower a bit and not communicative
They grew too fast and are trying to bring in business to match current size with limited success resulting in repeated layoffs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talk with your people and listen to them more. There is a trust issue widening as the belief is that you are all making decisions that impact them and they are not a part of it. They were hired under the "Open Disclosure" promise and see it being violated. If that is no longer the policy, then state it and set out what is the current practice. Stop hiding and excluding them.
