    I worked at Synechron full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Free snacks / iced coffee
    - Occasional free lunch
    - Foot in the door to better opportunities (IF YOU'RE NOT ON BENCH AND NEW TO THE JOB MARKET)
    - fun outings

    Cons

    -Absolutely ZERO structure. If you ever get hired for Synechron, you will see how disorganized the structure is (onboarding, etc).
    - No 401k (keep in mind this is a company with 8k employees).
    -No loyalty to employees. If you are on a visa (h1-b, etc) BE VERY WARY OF SYNECHRON. They do not take that into consideration when preforming their rounds of layoffs.
    - Toxic work enviornment. Office is absolutely out of control in-terms of politics. Some of the sales employees are insane, power-hungry individuals that let their salaries and revenue projections overtake their sense of decency.
    - Rates offered are horrible for the market, part of the 2020 initative.
    - Sexism runs rampant in the company
    - Nepotism is absolutely out of control at Synechron

    Advice to Management

    - if you want to make a diverse and inclusive environment, start off by letting go of those in power that support racist, sexist and homophobic ideals.
    - Listen to your employees (yes we need an ATS!!!!!!!, yes we need an HRIS, yes we need a 401k, yes we need to restructure internal operations)
    - Synechron's reputation is definitely tanking, I suggest starting to listen to your employees and making immediate changes to how the company is run.
