    I have been working at Synchrony full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance - multiple work from home situations Benefits - offer insurance for pets Opportunity to switch jobs every 2 years

    Cons

    Top level executives all look the same and come from same background Too many executives leading to many people trying to prove their job is needed Lots of negative energy, poking holes in projects without providing solutions No ownership, too many chefs in the kitchen, lots of red tape Team building events end up with people derogatory and offensive comments since majority of people look like them and have the... same political affiliations

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Synchrony full-time

    Pros

    * Tons of opportunities for training and development * Great HR, a lot is invested in people here * Making a concerted effort to re-invent itself as the financial services industry changes * Great company culture * Huge organization and lots of opportunity for movement, both horizontally as well as vertically * Executive leadership is available and friendly

    Cons

    * Very easy for low value employees to just stick around forever * Tons of process/bureaucracy. It was a GE subsidiary so a lot has been inherited * Things happen, but they take time. Very consensus driven.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to change, so many things happen here because 'that's just what we've always done.'

    Could use more structure in terms of multiple team interactions.

    Keep doing what you do now.
