Synchrony – Why Work For Us?


You have ambitions of your own.

On our team, you’ll help customers succeed, but that’s just the beginning of your job description. We want you to grow, to learn, to explore—and we’ll help you do it all: through paid training, career progression, competitive benefits, tuition reimbursement, and opportunities that will push your career as far as you want to take it. 

We’re a working forward place.

We’re more than a workplace—we’re a working forward place. That means we welcome change. We value your ideas. And we care about our community. We’re taking more than 85 years of heritage and molding it into a different future: a new kind of financial services company for our customers—and a new way of working for you.

Our focus is on people, not just profits.

We don’t see our customers as dollar signs. We see them as human beings who want to bake in a new kitchen. Or get married on a gondola. Or pay for their daughter’s braces. We deliver the tools and technology to help people achieve what matters most.

Speaking of people …

You’re the reason we can do what we do. You’re the reason we can help our customers achieve their goals. You’re the reason we’re creating a different kind of financial services company. And you’re the reason we’re succeeding.

Serious commitment from our people deserves a serious commitment in return. Join our team and we pledge to do everything we can to encourage your growth in an inclusive, collaborative environment where your co-workers feel like friends (and maybe even family). We’ll value your contributions, because we know brilliant ideas can come from an executive or an intern or anyone in between. And we’ll provide countless ways to succeed.

Whether you’re interested in a career in Finance, Technology, Risk, HR, Sales and Marketing, or at one of our Call Centers, we know you have goals of your own. And we’re here to help you achieve them.

We're working forward to helping our communities

Some people work forward to buying groceries. Or having a roof over their heads. Or knowing their children are safe. They’re working hard to achieve what we sometimes take for granted. Volunteering connects us to our communities, improves the world for everyone and puts our own goals in perspective.

Every year, we spend thousands of hours and millions of dollars to improve the communities where we live and work. We match our team’s charitable gifts and provide support for United Way campaigns. We’ve also created a new philanthropic program, Families That Work, that focuses on providing basic needs for today’s working families—housing for the homeless, childcare for parents who need a safe place for their children while they work and economic security for families who need to stabilize their income.

Together, we share our skills, our strength and our hearts to help our neighbors achieve their goals—especially when they’re as important as putting food on the table.
