I worked at Synaptics full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good Benefit, Friendly Work Enironment, Lots of fun activities. Great technology and room to Grow (if you know where the right path is). Compensation for laid off employees were generous.

Cons

very dynamic company and orgranizational changes are too frequent lately (almost every 6-months). You are uncertain of who will be your next boss or which department are working on next. I like the company when it was small, you know almost everyone in the company and you know who the right person to talk to. Don't apply in a position related to manufacturing as they transferring most of manufacturing stuff to oversea. They laid off people the supports manufacturing. No technical training provided for employees, unless you know what you are doing, you need to learn your stuff by yourself.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I hope there was a chance to give performance review of your direct boss. Managers need to be trained on how to manage people. A lot of redundant development going on in different department. If each department communicating very well, they could have save tons of money on tool development (software/hardware) if they only knew that somebody is already working on it.

    Pros

    Good manager, flexible work schedule, healthy workplace environment, nice perks from time to time.

    Cons

    The leadership has changed frequently over the past 2 years. Quick growth of the company has led to many pain points, communication is not always great. Company is traditional top-down. Big differences in business units means there is good collaboration within units but not across.
