    Pros

    Great culture. Employees are hard-working, but at the same time, everyone is amicable and has a really positive attitude. The management seems to care about the well-being of all employees. I would definitely say I enjoy coming in to work. The company is growing, so employees are given a lot of exposure to the company and to the life sciences industry as a whole. The company has a very international presence. The leadership invests in its employees by providing ample training, so there are good opportunities for career development. Overall, I would say that Synowledge is an exciting company to work for that provides very good personal and career growth opportunities.

    Cons

    None to report at the moment

    Pros

    Management: Strong management group with clear communication and a forward thinking attitude Autonomy: Management provides direction, but a large share of the planning and implementation responsibilities are owned by the employee. This is the best way for employees to grow rapidly and acquire skills that translate into career success. Industry: Experience is at a premium in the Industry and this position exposes you to all aspects within Pharmaceutical services Flexibility: High degree of job flexibility in terms of working from home when needed. Travel: Potential for high degree of travel throughout areas in the North and South America, Europe and Asia Networking: Opportunities to meet and network with high ranking personnel within Big Pharma

    Cons

    Workload: Workload can be heavy if not managed properly so you should be efficient and productive Expectation: With autonomy comes a high level of expectations

    Pros

    There are no pros for the company which I found till now. Just one thing HR is really helpful.

    Cons

    Very bad company for fresher and mid level employees. If you have 2-3 yrs exp and coming here it will be like u will spoil ur those valuable years. I won't recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Please learn from other PV organisation.. Just have a comparison with company which is as old as urs. Employees are very dedicated but what u ppl r doing for them. There is no work life balance. Will like you say that while interacting with u ppl it seems like you don't want ppl to have happy work life and personal life. Pls improve work environment.

    Pros

    The company has amazing talent in the Delivery groups with respect to Project Managers, Delivery Managers, Quality Managers. The company has a great future for professionals who work in BPO and KPO sector and who want to climb up the organizational-ladder fast. Demand an astronomical hike (upto 75%) if you are pretty sure that you are having niche skills and if you have been badgered by the Hiring team on phone multiple times to join; maybe you would get lucky. But that's pretty much the start and end of your dream and your professional ambitions. If you are happy with the Money, then hang on there. You might be quite surprised by a quick onsite project on a long-duration even. Dollars count, Isn't it? The company has inherited its core strengths from its parent company, which assures them a continuous source of revenue for the next 10 years at-least. The Bangalore office is located in the heart of the city; which is a blessing for native Bangloreans; maybe this factor doesn't matter much for aggressive and ambitious professionals, who are not frustrated by long-hours commuting.

    Cons

    Vision, Mission and core values are not institutionalized. Lacks a true Visionary. The hunger and thirst of a struggling entrepreneur doesn't get reflected in the growth-ethos of the company. Policies and guiding principles of the company which influence the delivery of KPO and IT Services projects are established and implemented as a result of outcome of client audits rather than as organic initiatives. Severe lack of formalized and automated process in the Support functions often frustrate the employees and the employer. Lack of employee welfare is reflected in the poor management of the company's facilities at Bangalore. Please don't mistake employee welfare with Birthday parties or company's annual celebrations.

    Advice to Management

    Envision, Think, Plan, Blueprint, Implement, Grow and Communicate to the associates what Synowledge stands for and what it aspires for. Make it a place where every associate would take pride in working and coming back everyday with a smiling face. This can't be done by salary revisions or onsite deputations.
