    I worked at Synovate

    Pros

    There is a great cohesiveness between co-workers. Synovate offers plenty of opportunities to get to know your peers and develop personal friendships outside of the work environment.

    Cons

    Due to the economy, Synovate was very understaffed. The work load was still manageable but it lead to periodic stressful times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Synovate does a great job developing their entry level employees. Supervisors are always accessible to junior staff and interns. I viewed, not only my immediate supervisor, but all the senior management in my department as a great mentor. They were patient and always offered their time to coach me on important issues in their field.
