    I worked at Symphony Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Symphony as an employee for close to 15 years.

    They are very professional and helpful. It starts from the leadership all the way to HR, recruiting, and accounting. They pay on-time irrespective of any lag time with client payments.

    Symphony is a great company to work for. They understand your concerns whether is it your personal or wages or benefits or work related issues and try their best to help employees.

    I feel very fortunate that I worked for Symphony and get to know the company and people. I think Symphony treats their employees as its own family.

    Cons

    I have nothing to share

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!!!

    Pros

    Their recruiting team is prompt in responding to consultants. What really sets Symphony apart from other hard-working, professional services firms is that Symphony has prioritized a culture of genuine caring about people - employees, clients, community. I was often impressed and inspired by leadership's dedication to doing what was right for the client, and simultaneously trying to protect sustainable work-life balance and continuously cultivate a fun, connected office/firm culture. They have business relationship with top healthcare clients.

    Cons

    Long hours for sure. But the people make those long hours very tolerable.

    Advice to Management

    Develop business in international markets - South America, Africa and Europe
