    I have been working at Synergy Global Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly, will help you. Small so you know almost everyone.

    Cons

    Still doing things same way as they did years ago. Not cutting edge, yet will try new idea without reasearching. Very uneven skill set in managing company.

    Advice to Management

    Internal software changes needed. Makes company not as efficient as could be. But make sure look at numbers and not just rush in.

    Pros

    Do not micro manage employees. Workers have good work ethic and values. Care about company's success.

    Cons

    Very small company. culture old fashioned - not progressive

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire more ambitious sales staff. Good product. Good people. Could be so much busier, bigger, better. Get out of the 1980s.

    Pros

    Once you are full time, benefits are good and easy to obtain time off when necessary

    Cons

    No reliable career advancement. Company shows no loyalty to employees, Laying off individuals who have been employees for a long time when workload diminishes. What we are told are company plans are just words, with actions sometimes forgotten

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more, and follow through on changes that were promised.

    Pros

    There's a great deal of flexibility. That's very good for self-directed people. It's a great place to learn new tech.

    Cons

    That same flexibility sometimes manifests as a lack of cohesive, apparent leadership. Synergy faces significant challenges as they transition leadership from the founder to the next generation of executives.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that, even though we've recently made progress in leadership transition, the new generation has to establish a new vision for the company and immediately begin to mentor their successors.

    Pros

    Business was strong and very effective using talent and efficiently provides goods and services

    Cons

    Buyout of original owner (CEO) caused poor business decisions and lost of major business client. Hopefully they will recover, but needs better management at top .

    Advice to Management

    Unable to give advise. but, where is your long term foresight now?
