    Pros

    Friendly people, have made some good friends at this company, nice offices and the benefits are OK, but not the best.

    Cons

    Upper management need to communicate more with staff at all levels and not just senior staff, also need to pay more attention to what is happening in the work place.

    Advice to Management

    Need to communicate more will all staff (at all levels not just Senior staff) and pay more attention to staff


  2. "Doesn't invest enough in employees unless they are senior leaders"

    Pros

    People in office are generally friendly
    Various groups working with a variety of companies across many industries
    Nice and open workplace - no cubicles

    Cons

    Very difficult to move up or around in organization - you might be promoted but it's rare to move up in the company to a senior/management role; seems like they do more external hiring to fulfil senior positions instead of investing in junior employees
    Little transparency across teams/groups - even after being there for awhile I still had no idea what other teams really did or had a general sense of cohesiveness across organization; senior management seemed to gather frequently but little information was passed down
    Long hours, compensation not competitive, marginal bonus payouts, and very few perks overall

    Advice to Management

    The general sentiment is that senior leaders do not make an effort to invest in/nurture/appreciate more junior employees. It seems that they only care about the "bottomline" and not whether people are content or if they'll even stay in the long run, which inevitably they do not.


  3. "Synovate needs to reevaluate the way they treat their employees"

    Pros

    It's international span. They do a lot of global work so you can work all over the world.

    Cons

    The employees are exploited. There is not enough staff. Not all, but many of the departments will do anything for business even if it is a bit unethical.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your staff's concerns. Try not to be so invasive. Take a bit more corporate responsibility and accountability for your actions.
