    I have been working at Synygy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the biggest pros to working at Synygy is the ability to be creative and navigate your own path to success. You can really define your career if you work hard AND work smart. In addition, the flexibility is priceless. One other thing you don't find at many other jobs, FUN! The company provides many fun outlets and promotes having a good time. This is not something I have experienced anywhere else.

    Cons

    Work Life balance is tough but I haven't found a place where it isn't. Leadership (Upper level management) isn't always on the same page and is very inconsistent. The only constant is change (although this can be a pro if done right). The PA location is not ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Leave the creative freedom to below the VP level. People need leadership that have a defined path and some structure. The organic growth should be left to below the VP level - this allows for people to feel like they are bigger contributors with their own ideas and, in turn, creates a positive atmosphere. Don't stop the fun - it is the one thing that has remained consistent through all of the other change. It really helps deal with some of the pressures we experience every day. More everyday recognition by upper mgmt would be nice - we do peer to peer recognition well - you can copy us :)

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Synygy (Chester, PA).

    Interview

    Interviews all took place in one day but took a very long time (2.5 hours) and was conducted by three separate employees, done individually.

    Interviewers were cordial and want to see how you problem solve.

    Interview Questions

    • "Google interview questions". E.g how long would it take you to mow this area is you mowed at this rate but you had to take a break every x minutes   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They have their offer and do not negotiate much.
