    I worked at Synapse Group full-time

    Pros

    People are smart, caring and fun to work with. In general, most people care about the place beyond just getting your daily work done.

    People are allowed to go outside their areas of expertise if they are smart and can add value. You are not trapped in doing the same thing everyday. People can also move from department to department when opportunities arise.

    Synapse has a great work life balance. Generally, management gets that people work hard and allow them to get their work done as they see fit. As long as you get your work done, you can balance your personal commitments with your work commitments.

    Employee benefits are pretty cool ... free lunch and dinner, summer cook outs, Halloween parties for families, work with AmeriCares and Special Olympics, trivia contests, etc.

    Cons

    Synapse is a division of a larger organization and sometimes the disadvantages that come with that come into play. However, Synapse senior management is generally willing to fight for what is best for Synapse.

    Synapse works within the magazine industry which is struggling which may or may not create issues for it in the future. Management is working on looking for other ways to diversify its growth.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look for ways to diversify business opportunities and listen to all employees to help understand their ideas and how they can help. Work as a team.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Synapse Group (Stamford, CT).

    Interview

    Professional, and personable interview. Fair for just-above-entry-level role. I was referred by a placement agent. Interviewed for two roles, the first with their IT group (which handles data there as well), the second with the business group. Everyone was friendly, the offices were nice.

    Interviews were relatively quick and professional.
