    I worked at Synechron for more than a year

    Pros

    - The people I worked with whilst I was there was great with some very intelligent and driven individuals - Nice office in a good location - Work life balance was not too crazy but dependent on project as per any consultancy

    Cons

    - Poor treatment of staff - High turnover of staff which contrasts their messaging - Growth opportunities are few - Management from senior levels were quite hands off even with the open door culture - Projects and work promised fell short of expectations - Not as transparent as they believe themselves to be - Plenty of bench time for a number of individuals - Much of the work outsourced to India - Benefits are...

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Synechron full-time

    Pros

    Met some great people but thankfully all have left and gone on to great roles outside of this company

    Cons

    Comments below are based on the London office; - Categorically the worst culture and hierarchy I’ve ever encountered in my career - The management team are in a bubble of massive male egos and sub standard delivery - Focus is bottom line, so they will put anyone in any role regardless of experience - Most of the consultants have been on the bench more than they have been on a client site, there is no development,...

      I worked at Synechron full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Working on some big projects.

      Cons

      Bad management of the actual need to employ more people. You can be let go pretty quickly. Some issue with the integration in part of the team. There seems to be a clear divide between the European team and the rest.

      Advice to Management

      Better integration and making sure no one feels left out and everyone work in English.

      Pros

      Good paymaster, rewards well for efforts. Good onsite opportunities if you are lucky enough to be placed on a project.

      Cons

      No career growth. If you are a part of the delivery team then company treats you only like a billing machine.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on career growth of performers in delivery rather than leaving them completely in the hands of account managers.

      I have been working at Synechron full-time

      Pros

      Office location. Free tea and coffee. Flexible working.

      Cons

      Promotion and job titles based on favoritism/closeness to Faisal rather than aligned any formal HR structure or performance measurement. Poor HR processes and duplication of effort between individuals and teams. Very inefficient. Highly political and dysfunctional. Despite reported growth this is concentrated in only a few clients and is highly transactional - Synechron is basically a very large bodyshop with no...

      Advice to Management

      People before profits. Idealistic to aim for 'a billion dollars' but for all Faisal's charisma and public talks, it won't happen with the naive approach being taken to workforce management and engagement.
