      I have been working at Synechron full-time

      Pros

      Working in Synechron is just like a second home for me. All the seniors and colleagues are very good, helpfull and co-operative. Some important qualities of it are following:-
      - Fun and peacefull work environment
      - Helpful and co-operative team work
      - Good management and leadership
      - Good paying company with lots of facilities
      - Very good training programs and always gets offers to learn new things work on latest technologies.

      I recommend that this is the best place for working to all candidates.

      Cons

      Sometimes work is challenging over here

      Advice to Management

      I have been working at Synechron full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      * Amazing co-workers and casual work environment
      * Great work-life balance
      * Company-sponsored events at least once a month to bond with co-workers
      * Lots of free food in the kitchen for employees

      Cons

      * I, like many other consultants here, was hired to be a Business Analyst (and some were hired to be developers) and most of us have been thrown onto year-long Quality Assurance roles.
      * All Junior Associates were promised a $5,000 raise after six months and only four were given raises.
      * No set business model, so many people were hired and then fired while I have been working here, because the company does not seem to understand what direction it's going.
      * There's not a lot of mentorship for Junior Associates, who are mostly fresh out of college and just starting their careers.

      Advice to Management

      Generally, I think Synechron is a great company to work for, and I imagine it's even better for those who are not Junior Associates. The Junior Associates are, unfortunately, taken advantage of and are sold narratives that never happen. Many of us end up on projects that will not advance our intended career paths. Many of us were promised a raise that never happened. All of us were promised mentorship that we unfortunately did not get. I came forward willing to compromise and take a plethora of different roles and yet still, I ended up in the one role I absolutely did not want and even made this clear before they hired me. If Synechron had fulfilled their promises, which isn't actually difficult to do, then this would have been the perfect company. But unfortunately, these faults are too great to overlook and sadly, I will be seeking employment elsewhere.
