    I worked at Synechron full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work with and meet some talented individuals. Snacks are somewhat ok.

    Cons

    Literally everything. Management is unorganized: Managers will walk around the office asking people if they know a specific technology in order to pitch you to a client who hasn't yet made up their mind if they want to work with Synechron, which puts you in a vulnerable position or on the chopping block if you happen to botch the interview. You'll have 2-3 managers try to pitch you to multiple clients, or even the same client twice due to lack of communication between managers and yourself. You'll get pitched to projects outside the scope of your experience and you are expected to interview with flying colors. All without giving you proper training. HR and on-boarding: A company should NEVER be receiving or sending out employee information such as social security # over email. That was my exact experience and I had to explain to someone in the office that this was bad practice. I was asked to comply as there was not a system in place for onboarding. Compensation: After working here a little over two years my salary stayed the same. After the first year I took on more responsibilities and even lead a few of the projects myself. Never received proper recognition nor increase in pay after working countless nights in overtime to meet deadlines. Job Security: It's funny that this company offers 401(k) because the likelihood of you getting let go due to management incompetence and lack of projects is higher than you staying long enough to have a 401(k) with this company.

    Pros

    None! It's not a company with a future.

    Cons

    Misogynistic and hostile work environment for women - Very poor training and advancement - Unprofessionalism and disorganized management style - Favoritism!!! If you don't suck up to the boss or if you're not Indian or best friends with the boss you won't last long.

    I worked at Synechron full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Tons of Accelerators to please the client in the first meeting

    Cons

    Not sure where to start, the company is full of biased people who talk so much but hardly know how to do things. The company has no set policy for the layoff, HRs are very rude while communicating layoff and no one is secure. People who worked for more than 8 years for the company can be laid off just because they are on the bench. There is no vision and has one major client Wells. If there is turbulence in Wells you can feel it in Synechron as well. I would not recommend anyone to join this company
