    Pros

    I worked at Synygy (Arezzo or Optymyze) for more than 2 years and it was nice to have a good work culture.

    Cons

    Managers :- These people need to look at themselves if they are really a good managers. The first questions is "WHY" even if you do great work they do not appreciate infact they start pulling legs and take all the credit of the work done by peers Seniors:- These are horrible....they just possess that they are busy and working seriously when they don't. The management needs to think twice before picking up and promoting someone for the senior position. I haven't seen Seniors helping their peers to help achieve good knowledge but they act as if they are the BOSS....

    Advice to Management

    Please think twice, thrice before promoting someone to Senior and Manager position

    Pros

    Good atmosphere and colleagues.

    Cons

    I have reed all the negative comments and they are all true please don't ignore and read them before joining this company. Yes the Mentors are selected on chits who cannot even write a simple mail. Not all the mentors are bad but there are few who will make your life hell and you will be forced to resign. For a few mentors or mangers working at Synygy is just a part time job while they concentrate more on their business. I would say once again please go through all the comments before joining this company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just blindly listen to the one who has been with the company for longer time.

    Pros

    -Its a good start for freshers but its not a place to work for long time. -Try be your managers favorite, if you mange too, your tenure with this company is going to good.

    Cons

    -Technology used is quiet old compared to the market for people working in Software -People having 6 plus years experience hold a lot of power in this company, if you happen to be in their good books you are lucky , you may just be able to laze around, come to office late, dictate to people, get work done from your juniors and take all the credit for their work, or you might be dumb, but you don't need to fret over it, your manager will save you. -Now comes the bad news if you are not a favorite, no matter how much work you do, you will always be overburdened, now if you have too much workload for long periods, burnout will lead to bad performance, and Daam this cycle will repeat itself -If you have a close relative working here in the same team, you don't need to worry you will be taken care of (Seen this happening during my tenure a lot of talented people were ill treated but some of the dumb ones survived every transition not because they were good at work, but because some close relative managed that team/or their manager) -Like I pointed out people who have spent a lot of time here hold a lot of power, there is too much of hierarchy, it is a sheer waste of money and talent, a manager for one team is good enough

    Advice to Management

    -Please try to reduce the hierarchy , its not required I presume you have hired a talented set of individuals and not sheep who need to be looked after and monitored every now and then. Flat hierarchy would help. -There is something like "work life balance" synygy doesn't have that. - Job Security poor. -There are lot of people with inadequate industry experience working at the top management, although such people think they understand the companies need, they cannot bring in right strategies to implement a transition in team, as they lack industry experience and have only "Synygy experience" -Try to get people with good industry experience in management, they can probably have a unbiased opinion on current people in the team.

    Pros

    Good place to start your career as a first job Smart people to work with in professional services

    Cons

    Lot of old timers in PS. Cannot change their way of thinking and once they create a perception about you they make sure to spread it and ensure it sticks around throughout your career in synygy Niche market. Cannot work in collaboration, lot of control sensitivity. Limited consulting opportunities mostly restricted to US only No training opportunities Tenure and favoritism play into promotions

    Advice to Management

    Management (especially old timers) have a very limited view of how organizations function. Try to either train them or infuse some fresh blood into management.

    Pros

    if you are looking for challenging work, up to date technology, package that can be compared with even top shot paying companies(provided you are good) then this is the company to work with. I am not sure about other department but for Software development, I can assure you quality people with quality work. It has very good, technically sound people. In the hierarchy of top to bottom, you can learn something from everyone. The product is very strong, company works in niche domain hence got good client tale. CEO is very promising. For people with less experience like within 2 3 years, it's very nice place to start your career.

    Cons

    no external training is organized. you can ask help from other people but mostly you are on your own. Three month probation, in which you have to really perform well otherwise you might get kicked out. If you believe in yourself, you are technically sound and accept day to day challenge then its your place. No matter how long you work with this company, you have to be competitively good. If you are good you will paid like whatever u want.

    Advice to Management

    we know changes are good but in my span of 3 years with company I saw many changes, so far those are good but such sudden changes might go wrong.

    Pros

    Good for freshers. Compensation is not bad for freshers to start with n learn with.

    Cons

    Zero clarity in what they want from their people. Objectives n targets change every 2 weeks, gets so confusing what are we working on. The industry leaders are picked with chits I guess. They hardly have 2yrs exp and are handling a team... its sad as no IJP were run to select them... Major favoritism in this company. If you can do sweet talk then this is the place for you. Mind you hard work is not appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    They need to hire some good managers to handle this place.
