    I worked at Synergy Enterprises, Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Pleasant small-company feel
    - Friendly co-workers
    - Great place to gain experience
    - Fun office activities (Thanksgiving potlucks, Decorate Your Cube for Christmas, etc.)
    - Depending on team, easy to maintain work/life balance

    Cons

    It's the government contracting world, so expect instability. Management is all over the place, you'll either have a great manager or a terrible one. Pay is low, and so are the bonuses. Benefits are not competitive. Communication and transparency could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with your employees about upcoming changes or shifts.

    I'm glad you had so many nice things to say about our community at Synergy. Unfortunately, as a government contractor, we are sometimes limited in the amount of benefits we can provide, and in the... More

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Synergy Enterprises, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    - Generally there's a respect for work/life balance
    - Casual atmosphere
    - Flextime available
    - Hiring is good; non-performers are let go instead of clogging up the works

    Cons

    - No tuition reimbursement or paid training
    - No guidance on skills needed to advance to next level
    - Upper management isolated from employees (co-worker calls their area "Mount Olympus")
    - Management in general not interested in the input or needs of lower level employees
    - High-volume document production must be done in-house, but printers are old & break down frequently
    - Benefits are anemic in general: health plan is expensive but network is poor; sick leave & vaca (combined) aren't great, plus we have to use it for snow days & office closures
    - We can't accrue comp time, but have to use or lose by the end of a pay period (mostly because the accounting dept doesn't want to be bothered with it)
    - And yes, favoritism galore!

    Advice to Management

    Ask us what we need to do our jobs well, instead of ignoring or talking down to us.

    I know this review was written five years ago, but I did want to let you know it was seen by someone in management. In 2017, Synergy has changed its office space, and taken time and initiatives to... More
