      Pros

      Writing this review to give feedback as i owed synergisticit this . good organization to get down and dirty on skills required by google, apple, visa ..... After being with synergisticit i had 3 offers in 2.5 weeks and rather than clients choosing me i could turn tables on them and pick and choose clients rather than waiting by the phone and refreshing emails waiting to hear from them i joined synergisticit almost...

      Cons

      sometimes technologies might be overwhelming and you feel or have self doubt whether you really know stuff.. when i interviewed at other clients i had 3 offers in 15 days so i guess i did know stuff

      Advice to Management

      start microsoft azure and aws projects

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

      Pros

      Good coverage of different technologies. i heard good things about them and experienced it myself. people previously who were unable to find jobs in startups after getting experience with synergisticit got offers from apple, paypal, intel . good place for people with basic understanding of programming in java or any other language and people with experience. If you dont know any programming dont join as you will have...

      Cons

      there is no planned structure only in the end all the pieces come together. Duration is pretty long as much as 4-5 months but i feel the topics covered are so many that it makes sense that it takes that much time. Good for people with basic knowledge and experienced people with no US experience . People who dont know coding will have tough time and will have to work long hours to compete

      Advice to Management

      have a more detailed structure and course curriculum as i know you dont advertise and it will be good for people who are missing out to come to a organization which can really help them rather than other organizations who are just scamming people

      Pros

      They won’t market you . Reviews are all written by same person . When you are bored read their reviews it makes you laugh 😂. It depends upon oneself to choose desi consultancy . For most people who got trained never got a job . Out of 15 opt only one got rest were just wasting time like me . Chose other desi consultancy who markets everyone . If he feels he cannot crack interview then he won’t even give you the faked...

      Hi thanks for your review . We don’t fake resumes and we don’t have a ton of opt’s. Most of our candidates are gc, citizens and h4 ead’s. We make our candidates work on projects and help them get projects themselves. 15 opt students !! At a given point of time. Maybe in 2012 we ...

      longer than anticipated took me 4 months as i had to take certifications for java 8 which took me 1.5 months.

      Advice to Management

      dont be affected by competitors or some person with an axe to grind keep up what you have been doing . People like me who had trouble finding employment will need firms like you to help find an entry into this competitive world of tech

      Pros

      You will learn a lot of what is the current world doing. Including programming skill and other stuff.

      Cons

      You will hate this company during you working there. Only thing that you can do just keep learning.

      Advice to Management

      If you spend time and learn from them, you will get a job.

      Pros

      None.Absolutely none. You will have a better future finding a job on your own.

      Cons

      Most of the reviews (barring 4 or 5) have been written by the same person. They are all fake. The manager of this group is as despicable as a person can be. He is so full of himself and thinks he is doing you a favor when in fact all he is doing is exploiting you. The trainers are OK. But its not something you can't learn on your own if you don't put in a little bit of effort.

      Advice to Management

      Get a life ! Stop creating fake resumes and stop exploiting OPT candidates.
