    I have been working at Synthace full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    An excellent culture to work within with a rapidly growing team of excellent people at the top of their game, technically and personally. A very inclusive attitude towards all aspects of the company so you don't feel in the dark about what is going on at a technical and business stand point. A very family oriented understanding with incredible support given to those with little ones when needed. Everyone really gives the job their all to contribute to a game changing software in the biological space. The passion from everyone is infectious! A lot of freedom in your role to come up with solutions to problems but with help never far if needed from leadership or peers, everyone always willing to help others out.

    Cons

    There have been some teething pains as the company is maturing out of start up mentality and getting structured process and direction into place has been slow at times. But certainly on the up and heading in the right direction.

    Im a very happy employee that loves their job and company, i really don't have any major negatives!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!
