    I worked at Synergy Enterprises, Inc. part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Upper management is experienced and mission-oriented. There are a lot of good things to say about the founder.

    Cons

    While the management intent is good, many staff members seem to be in it for themselves, and not so much for the good of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Try to improve communications to the non-management staffers, vet the department heads better, and increase the opportunities for advancement and training.
