Pros

Synta is based on very solid science and attracts a lot of good and talented scientists. You have a chance to contribute a lot, and you learn a lot. Good teamwork and good teamplay after work.

Cons

BizDev wasn't as successful as they could be. Sometimes Senior Management was building castles in the sky which couldn't stand reality checks.
Being a medium-size company doesn't allow Synta to promote people within unless someone leaves (which may force some people to leave looking for greener pastures).

    Pros

    employees are friendly & hard-working; almost 4 weeks vacation time;

    Cons

    horrible interdepartmental communication; mediocre benefits/pay; required to work overtime; they don't prefer to promote or hire from within (career advancement is virtually non-existent); very low-tech company (ancient computers, internet system, software, lab equipment, etc)

    Advice to Management

    suggest executives stop allowing inexperienced CEO to make critical decisions about the direction the company is going & allow more qualified staff & management to lead
