    I worked at Synechron full-time

    Pros

    Junior Associate program is a great way to get your foot in the door for your career
    A lot of different projects to be put on
    Easy to stand out
    Good amount of freedom, depending on project

    Cons

    A lot of unqualified workers doing jobs they shouldn't be doing
    Might put you on a project you don't want to be on; very difficult to change
    Very much a quantity > quality mindset

    Advice to Management

    Hire smarter people (especially into leadership positions) and use them to push your brand. Throwing people at a problem doesn't fix things.

    Pros

    Nice office, great views

    Cons

    Disorganized management, senior management rarely around, unrealistic deadlines

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the employees and take an honest temperature of how employees view the company. Many employees are dependent on work Visas here and are overworked/underpaid as they do not feel they can speak freely on their own behalf. Create a culture of openness and transparency.

    I have been working at Synechron full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance was ok depending on the project..

    Cons

    Don't let them fool you, it's a body shop and will hire and fire as someone previously mentioned. And yes they do hand out raises and promotions like candy but once they don't need you anymore they will fire you. Office politics is everywhere and all around toxic environment. Their is also no 401k because the company is still predominantly internationals and H1Bs... lacking from an industry standard!!! HR is nonexistent and delusional as well, no help whatsoever!
