Pros

Exciting, fast growing company where working smarter and harder will get you noticed. There are some good ideas that have come out of Synchronoss. The focus on timely delivery goes a long way to keeping customers, and expanding the relationship as more of a partner than a vendor. That is a recipe for continued success.

Cons

Going through some (to be expected) growing pains making the transition from start up to mid-market, publicly traded company. Long hours and frequent heroics are pretty much required.

Advice to Management

Come down from the tower occasionally!

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

    Pros

    It's nice to have a decent paying job and pretty good benefits. Good amount of PTO... If you work under the right management team the work can be enjoyable. Also easy to move up because the company hires so many people that are not career minded, so if you can excel and stand out - you will get noticed.

    Cons

    I agree with every con listed before. Lack of professionalism. The company is growing too fast and not spending enough on developing the management team to handle that growth. Stressed out managers lash out on employees creating a toxic environment for some. Hard to trust anyone - most people seems to have an 'out for self' attitude. Employees are not valued or made to feel appreciated. Lack luster attempts at "Employee Appreciation" events are just that - lack luster and contrived.
    Lack of communication - performance reviews are a joke -(again, it depends on your management). Raises are a 'maybe' with no real communiation as to if and when it will come.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees! High attrition rates mean something! Open the door to better communication and remove the veil that creates a fear of retaliation.
