I worked at Synaptics as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Synaptics had a great internship program with group outings, luncheons with executives, and opportunities to learn more about the company. Synaptics has an excellent corporate culture!

Cons

Software group was understaffed and overworked. As an intern, I did get a lot of time to meet my manager or co-works, who were all too busy with their own tasks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Software Tools, please divulge more time and attention to interns.

    I have been working at Synaptics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Good corporate culture. There are many activities like: soccer, hiking, biking, ping pong, yoga classes and so on... (you only need a time for that)

    Cons

    There some problems with managing and planing. Company doesn't hire enough engineers. Current employees are overloaded and sometime they need to work during weekends to meet deadlines. There is not real compensation when you work on weekends.
    Overall compensation is average. Expectations for employees are high.
    Company is investing heavily into offshore design centers to cut cost and people into US... but everyone is doing this.
