    I have been working at Synack full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    First off... The culture is 2nd to none! Nice people, friendly and willing to invest time ensuring your success.

    Great Compensation - Great perks - happy hour, catered food.

    Flexible schedule - "do what helps you be the most productive" type of attitude is what you'll see and hear.

    Work Culture- Hard work and commitment is highly appreciated and rewarded.

    Management- Great leaders who not only focus on the company and it's customers, but value their employees most! Something not typically found at companies in Silicon Valley.

    Peers- No politics, fair people, always ready to help.

    Cons

    Not a huge fan of the location and commute.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus most on your employees. after all, they are your greatest asset.

    I have been working at Synack full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are looking for a company that is flexible with your schedule and provides you opportunities to help better yourself in and outside of work, look no further than Synack. I live in the city, so being able to avoid commuting every day has saved me the peace of mind needed to excel at my day-to-day duties.

    Cons

    As with any startup, resources can sometimes be scarce. If you are lucky enough to be hired on, prepare to take on several roles.

    I have been working at Synack full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome team with great core values. There is a lot of opportunity both individually and for the company as crowdsourcing is becoming more mainstream in the security space. There's awesome perks like snacks, lunches, team events, flexibility, etc. Most importantly the management has strong vision and doesn't micromanage.

    Cons

    Synack is very results driven, this isn't the type of job where you can "coast." It is hard work and as with most startups there are a lot of competing priorities.
