      I have been working at Synchrony full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Work life balance, benefits for those starting families, people are truly nice and friendly (less politics felt day to day, but still exists)

      Cons

      Things are slow to change, limited room for growth in analytics (but good in other functions), inconsistency with HR/levels, maybe look elsewhere if you are in your 20s

      Pros

      Work-Life balance, benefits, innovative, client-focused, tech savvy.

      Mid management , leadership is poor. Company won't be able to advance until the old GE culture is corrected- needs fresh ideas and fresh blood.

      Remove the political drama that goes on each day by empowering good leaders.

      I have been working at Synchrony full-time

      Pros

      BLP provides recent college graduates a great opportunity to explore different areas of the company and get a variety of experiences early in their career. There is good exposure to senior leadership and great work-life balance.

      Cons

      Synchrony only tends to recruit at a specific set of schools for BLP which can lead to a biased group subject to group-think. There's little horizontal mobility you're pigeon-holed into the track that you join the company with. There's also a number of disparities between the various tracks regarding opportunities and base salary.

      I have been working at Synchrony full-time

      Pros

      1. Decent Pay 2. Good office locations 3. Good office environment and workspaces 4. Decent at offering training and travel opportunities for employees 5. Internal mobility seems pretty good at least for lateral transfers.

      Cons

      1. Work-life balance is not balanced within the company. A lot of people coast until they can get into a central function because the client-facing jobs (revenue-generating) tend to be stressful. 2. Client-first mentality comes at the expense of Synchrony's employees - as long as client is happy no one cares that you are suffering. 3. Poor leadership, especially with mid-level...

      Advice to Management

      Synchrony claims to be innovative but it is not. The technology is poor. Processes are poor. Analytics is poor. There is too much lazy thinking and complacency caused by good times. This company really needs to be put in the fire and have a genuine business crisis. That way they will be refined with the bad junk burned off or they will fail.
