Wacky, exciting, fun, chaotic place to work!

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

I worked at Synapse Product Development

ProsSynapse 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
