Pros

Synta is based on very solid science and attracts a lot of good and talented scientists. You have a chance to contribute a lot, and you learn a lot. Good teamwork and good teamplay after work.

Cons

BizDev wasn't as successful as they could be. Sometimes Senior Management was building castles in the sky which couldn't stand reality checks.
Being a medium-size company doesn't allow Synta to promote people within unless someone leaves (which may force some people to leave looking for greener pastures).

    Pros

    Synta was like a family. We have gone our separate ways now, but many of us keep in touch still

    Cons

    Synta didn't always play by the rules, and in the end, we cut too many corners and our drugs failed

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to do things the right way. It might have taken longer, but we would still be around today
