Pros

Syncapse is a very exciting place to work, much like the space we work in, everything is constantly growing, changing and evolving. I think the more you put into the company, the more you will get out of it - management are very open to ideas, and initiative from the employee will determine your success. Despite the startup environment, all of the offices are in really great locations and the spaces are well built out. Everyone who works here is really young, bright and fun and the company puts in effort to build culture with cool events and activities - this year we started our first company baseball team, the SynCity Slammers.

Cons

There have been some problems with communication from the management down to the employee but it is something you can tell the exec is not proud of and is seriously working on improving. IAlso, as the company has grown in different directions, there has been some noticeable turnover although now that the company has defined it's vision, you can tell that the culture has improved dramatically. This is not a 9-5 career choice, this is clearly defined from the start but many complain about it, if that is important to you, you are in the wrong company!

Advice to Management

I think the managers have to work on being more open with their respective teams so the employees feel more connected to the overall business. Maintaining an open dialogue with employees beyond company-wide meetings in order to address issues as they happen needs to be a priority.
