    Pros

    A great company to work for. I worked for them for 4 years and the people you will work with are some of the nicest and most caring you will find. You will work tightly with all departments and there is an open door policy in the company.

    Cons

    They are a small company and the work load is very high.

    I have been working at Synergistix full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've read a lot of the negative reviews and of course, they were all submitted by disgruntled former employees. I am a current employee of Synergistix and it is by far, THE BEST COMPANY I've worked for (and I've worked at many places).

    Upper management genuinely cares for each employee on a professional level as well as the well being of each employee. Salaries are competitive with their peers.

    Cons

    If and when I think of a CON, I'll update this but as of now, none come to mind.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. This is a great place to work! I love the direction you are taking the firm and am proud to be part of the Synergistix family!

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

    Pros

    Hard working employees, everyone gets along great and the employees are the best part of this place. They are flexible with work schedules, which is helpful, but that is not available to every position. Benefits are good too, but pay is low. Good place to get experience, but not to stay for long if you want to grow.

    Cons

    - Salaries are so much lower than other companies
    - Egotistical , demeaning leadership that doesn't care about the employees, they feel they are superior to you and can talk down to you to make themselves feel more important. They are the WORST part of this place.
    - Company has lots of potential, it just needs better leaders in place, people don't seem motivated because of them and managers cant do much about it because they don't have the support of the uppers.
    - Company is very reactive and doesn't plan for anything
    - No training available unless you pay for it out of your own pocket

    Advice to Management

    You have a great business, you just don't know how to run it or treat people like you care about them.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Employees feel like family. Benefits and PTO are very good. New ideas are welcome and they are open to employees learning much about how the company and its various positions work independently and collaboratively.

    Cons

    The pay is not up to par with similar companies in the area. There is a small sense of office politics when it comes to recognition or promotion opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the pay of your employees if you want to keep high quality employees on your payroll.

    Pros

    Good place for Cuban coffee! If it is not one of the owners making it, someone else on the staff will have it ready everyday at 3pm.

    Cons

    This company has to have the one of the highest turnovers in South Florida. That is the most telling indicators of the health of a company from the point of view whether you would want to work there or not.

    Lead by example is not a motto of Synergistix. Their motto is blame the employee for mistakes to keep upper management employed. Customers are trained to escalate issues to get things done. This creates a toxic environment for employees.

    To summarize the this review with one word: Run!

    Advice to Management

    Run and replace yourselves with competent management and your profits will soar. You can collect your revenue drinking rum and coke on the beach.

    I worked at Synergistix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you're good at what you do, you will get promoted here very quickly (see cons before you get excited).
    The employees (non-management) is what keeps people here.
    You can wear t-shirts and jeans, unless clients come to visit the office, then you need to put on the facade.
    HR is wonderful!

    Cons

    Salary is not competitive.
    Too late to enter Cloud market,
    No ownership or accountability when things go wrong. Its days, sometimes weeks, of finger pointing.
    Application stack offers no scalability or redundancy.
    Platform dependent.
    Workflow model is not clearly defined. Poorly executed Waterfall shop at best.
    Work-life balance doesn't exist unless you're a web developer or DBA. Every other team gets treated unequally.
    Don't ever mention open source to anyone there.
    Weekend work occurs every week scheduled and not compensated.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your talent before you lose them. Stop being so closed minded, resisting change is not how you gain traction in this market. You're only as good as your most frustrated employee. With that being said, I hope this is an eye opener.

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

    Pros

    Centrally located in West Broward county. Close to the Sawgrass Mills mall, so you can do some shopping at lunch time. Close to I-595 and I-75.

    Some good colleagues.

    Cons

    They wrote the book on micro-management, so you will enjoy this place if you are into that. Wages are below market value. That along with the poor management means that the turnover here is very high.

    The management style is reactive. The client that complains the loudest gets the attention. This trains the poor customers to complain and escalate things to get things done. Keep some aspirin nearby.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the business and less on controlling your employees.

    Very supporting co-workers who are willing to help each other. Its a sales force automation for health science company. Several big pharmaceuticals are their clients. Management encourages new ideas and ready to implement it if it is feasible.

    Cons

    Too late to enter into the Cloud technologies.
    Management is a bit close minded.
    Work environment sucks big time. they have picnic tables as desks.
