Pros

Synapse provides opportunities to build very cool products using some very exciting technologies and tools in such areas as medical devices, consumer electronics and laboratory automation. The people are whip smart, social, fun-loving and, for the most part, willing to help each other. Politics is at a minimum and senior leadership is willing to share information to a large degree.

Cons

The place is chaotic with little, or no, development processes defined or followed. schedules are short and project success depends, to a large degree, on personal heroics of team members. Lack of process leads to different projects reinventing the same wheel. Effort is often misdirected or wasted. There is no defined process to institutionalize corporate knowledge.

Advice to Management

Senior management needs to be more business savvy both is getting projects and managing them. Better accounting and financial oversight will help too.

    Pros

    Bright people who enjoy solving difficult problems. Lots of different projects going on. Company makes a strong effort to maintain a work life balance.

    Cons

    Culture can be emphazied too much. Some projects are going in different directions from the rest of the company and will be interesting to see how true to the core teams they remain.

    Pros

    Wonderful people (smart, nice, competent, fun, active)
    Variety of projects
    There is always something new to learn
    The company truly cares about the people and community. Not only in words, but more so in action.

    Cons

    Sometimes workload is high, but it is cyclical
    In the past the financial highs and lows would greatly impact the business, but now it is a lot more stable and the client portfolio is much more diverse

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Stand for the people and quality of work as always.
