    "Ok place to work"

    I have been working at Syneos Health

    Pros

    Work life balance is fantastic. Managers in my department are very keen on making sure we work within our normal hours.

    Cons

    Benefits SUCK. Our health insurance is among the worst in the industry. We still do not have 401k contributions back after being dropped for COVID (but only US employees. They still contribute for ROW). Use it or lose it PTO. Used to have the week after Christmas off which we lost this year. The CEO has no vision other than trying to recoup the money we lost off the merger. Wish we were back to INC research.
