I have been working at Synapse Product Development as an intern (Less than a year)

You really need to be a self starter here. No one is really telling you what to do.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Synapse Product Development full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Collaboration is a value, and an expected fact
    Brilliant engineers who are creative and know there disciplines
    Open office plan where projects are quickly and easily co-located
    Wednesday company lunches and Beer:30s

    Cons

    Just changes management and they are struggling with values that made the company
    New management is in an ivory tower a bit and not communicative
    They grew too fast and are trying to bring in business to match current size with limited success resulting in repeated layoffs

    Advice to Management

    Talk with your people and listen to them more. There is a trust issue widening as the belief is that you are all making decisions that impact them and they are not a part of it. They were hired under the "Open Disclosure" promise and see it being violated. If that is no longer the policy, then state it and set out what is the current practice. Stop hiding and excluding them.
