I worked at Synarc

Pros

I really liked the people I worked with, and I really liked the content of the work I was allowed to do. Fascinating business model.

Cons

Lack of resources. Big separation between management and where the work was performed. Lack of career growth. Questionable management competence.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get better funding and more experienced management. The company is chronically under resourced, particularly in sales. The senior leadership is inexperienced at running and growing a profitable enterprise.

    I have been working at Synarc

    Pros

    Good place for finding biotech work right out of college. The company offers very flexible hours to accommodate any schedule.

    Cons

    The pay is probably the worst aspect of this job. Raises are pretty much non-existent. The only possible way to gain a promotion is to wait for someone to quit, get laid off, or fired and then it is a rush between all employees to get that position.

    There is minimal training!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train the employees more. This would be very beneficial to the company and to all employees. Don't focus on one study for months at a time only to let the others falter and t hen wonder why you have to play catch-up every other month.

    Pros

    Opporunity to gain exposure to biotech operations out of college.

    Cons

    Lack of strategic direction by new Senior Management team. Too much emphasis on cost-cutting measures for talented employees, including the individuals in Engineering/Science who are the value drivers in the Company. Bonuses are never paid. Attrition is high. Extremely immature Company that takes two steps forward with good people, and three steps back with inept management decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a strategic vision for the Company and send a clear message to the employee base.
