I have been working at Synergistix full-time (Less than a year)
After roughly 3 weeks with this company, I'm writing my review. My previous employer treated the staff very well. It was actually on the Fortune 100 best places to work. When my time with them came to an end, I internally accepted that I would probably not find an environment like that again. I have never been so wrong about anything in my life!
While my previous employer did wonderful things for the employees, at Synergistix everything feels more natural and genuine. My on-boarding with this company has been well rounded, and made me comfortable in the tasks assigned to me.
To list a few positives:
- Amazingly warm staff. From top to bottom, everyone is welcoming and willing to assist in whatever capacity is needed. The first company I've ever worked for that is completely free of ego on every level.
- This company genuinely cares about it's employees. The benefits package is magnificent, and tons of amazing random perks.
- Excellent environment. Seriously, there's a popcorn machine and a basketball hoop. As far as I can tell, nobody has a bad day here!
Very few, but I've listed them below:
- They lack a life size replica of the Fontana di Trevi in the parking lot.
- No personal masseuse.
- Sets the bar for amazing employers far too high. I'm going to be disappointed should I move on from here.
Yes, that's sarcasm. If there are negatives, I have yet to find them.
Advice to Management
- Keep doing exactly what you're doing. You've assembled a remarkably talented staff, and established an exquisitely unique environment.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Synergistix (Sunrise, FL).
Initial Interview was a phone call, which they asked some development questions.
The next interview was a face-to-face after a call back.
Group of 3 /4 developers grill you on development questions, pretty normal stuff.
Mostly .NET and SQL Server questions, some open source, but the majority of their team hates open source so I wouldn't mention that.
There is no negotiation phase with them, it was This is X, take it or leave it. Maybe they are more open now...
