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

    Pros

    Synchronoss has a high grade of friendliness and comradery in the workplace. Communication is encouraged, and continual learning is stressed.
    Interns are (usually) treated as a valuable part of the team, and can contribute in a very real way to the success of projects.
    Good HR.

    Cons

    As a fast-paced company, managers are often overworked. This can put undue stress on the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Synchronoss has a lot of interns each year, who are great resources -- don't let them go unused.

    I have been working at Synchronoss

    Pros

    Great place to work (Bay area)
    Challenging tasks .Personally grown a lot over years
    Interesting work .Start up kind of work

    Cons

    Management needs to little more focussed on employees and code quality and standards .Like training people . making the work env more fun and motivating for co -workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Guys have u ever realised the fact that sncr is a product based company meaning company is selling code and making money. So code is the key or the heart of the organisation .I have not seen one layer of management worry about coding standards. training people .motivating .sending them to conferences . I think management should seriously take this into consideration and make the foundations very strong. Thats the only thing thats gonna save the company for a long time and make it prosperous.

    I worked at Synchronoss full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There really isn't much I can say. In the beginning it wasn't so bad but when they bought out out company every good thing about the company was gone.

    Cons

    Bad health insurance. It would be cheaper to just buy it on your own. They ship their jobs to India so your job is always up in the air. They have no concept of employee appreciation or development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know that your employees are you assets and that they are the ones to help you succeed. Make the NDA less restrictive because it bars employees from ever working in the field again. Not just your competitors
