    Pros

    I like the way the projects are run and how the work is assigned to me. I am able to contribute directly to the success.

    Commuting to the client location via metro makes it hard sometimes. But this is normal in the region.

    I worked at Syneren Technologies Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Employees are all hard working. I will say my time there my co-workers were the ones that got me through the day. I will also say what I learned here I was able to apply it at my current job. So thank you for that. I will say this, I am a hard-working employee and I was very fortunate to have a job with a commute that wasn't far.

    Cons

    That being said, as time went on I notice I was underpaid and overworked. Prepare for no work/life balance. I've no problem working overtime to fix things here or there, but not at the expense of my health. I guess I wouldn't mind it so much if felt appreciated for all my hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a telework policy, let your employees have a work/life balance and respect them. When employees feel appreciated they will work harder for you and the company. If they don't feel appreciated, it's just a job for them to pay bills and get by.

    I worked at Syneren Technologies Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits for a small company.

    Cons

    No respect for employees, you will be treated either as a child or regarded as a spy. The owners are a married couple though they try to hide that relationship from employees and clients, they suspect everyone of being potentials spies for their competition. They will shove unqualified employees into customer facing jobs without a second thought. At HQ, there is no privacy, expect your company email to be monitored in real time, you most likely will not get a desk but will be seated at a table without drawers or any place to store files. You probably won't get a phone, they only have a small number of phones and even if you have a phone, you may come in one day to find that IT took it for someone else. All the positive reviews on here have been written by the owners or Human Resources to pump their score up. Wages are not competitive and employees are constantly told how lucky they are to have a job with Syneren.

    Advice to Management

    Close up shop and disappear into the night. Syneren is not even a "C" list company in the Federal contracting space.

    Pros

    I would say nothing if I could, but for sake i can say Free Lunches

    Cons

    Extremely stressful and abusive management where they treat you as if in a school environment. Sometimes its even hard to take personal leave that you are entitled.
    I will never recommend this company to anyone

    Advice to Management

    Consider having a better management to treat your employees right so that environment will be a better place to work.

    Pros

    Awesome women owned company with good team mate

    Cons

    Expectation is unrealistic as they bidder on some of the contract so low and needed to fulfill some unexpected milestones from their staffs.

    Advice to Management

    Give people time to get into the project

    Pros

    Growth potential, great employee benefits, free annual holiday party, leadership opportunities, annual employee profit sharing bonus in December.

    Leaders/Managers that let you know exactly where you stand.

    Cons

    Small businesses providing contracted professional services live and die by competing and winning contracts; If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. The kitchen is very hot here at Syneren.

    Leaders/Managers that let you know exactly where you stand.

    Advice to Management

    Further open the lines of communication up and down the chain of command,
