Great culture and environment, lack of projects and clients make it very challenging

Pros

Fantastic people, great work location, and amazing perks: free beverages, beer Fridays, Weekly Wednesday lunches, generous PTO.

Cons

Unfortunately, there is not enough diversity in clients, and plenty of competition in the marketplace. Having just a few is very risky. As a result, Synapse has had yearly layoffs - of 15-20% every year - due to client project need changes.

You may also be placed in a role that is outside of your area of expertise, making it more challenging.

Advice to Management

The upper management team has tried for 1 year with very little success on obtaining new clients and new sales opportunities. Recommendation would be to have new sales teams, to diversity projects and clients, including a change in leadership.

    Pros

    Besides a paycheck, nothing

    Cons

    Leadership is severely lacking a vision. Constant on-boarding of new Senior Management is a joke. The CEO is spinning in circles with no direction and no idea how to build or make Synapse into what it was 2 years ago. The same clients we have had for years are pulling back on projects so revenue is drastically falling. We just went thru another layoff which was horrible and saddening to go thru.

    Advice to Management

    All of your rock stars are getting ready to leave because of the Leadership

    Pros

    You get to work on some really cool projects, they treat their employees very well

    Cons

    You really need to be a self starter here. No one is really telling you what to do.
