    I have been working at Synarc full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, the line workers, and most of the first tier managers are wonderful. Most of the workers in operations are young, enthusiastic and right out of college, there's nothing better than enthusiasm and caring. The first line managers are experienced and care about the job and the people.

    For a person right out of college it's great.

    The company could be so great with such group of people.

    Cons

    Senior management is out of touch and sets unrealistic goals. It's amazing how disconnected they are from the realities of the business, the products and services.

    Turn over rate is extremely high, it's as if the company is a training ground for other companies. In meeting with customers, several of them were former employees who moved on and UP to better salaries, and bigger companies

    Advice to Management

    Invest in infrastructure, invest in people, invest in learning what the business really does.

    Learn that people are your best asset and keeping them will serve you much better than serving the bottom line.

    Interview

    Interview process was quick. Two hour interview with several employees. The interview was 1:1 with about 4-5 employees. The company made a quick decision and got back to me the same day.
