Pros: nice location in auburn hills, nice office space
Cons: fire in a minute, does not stick by corporate values, management not knowledgeable about the departments they lead., good ole boy network that favors europeans
I was hired into a management position at this company in Auburn Hills. I was skeptical to join a private firm, but was given assurances by Personnel and the people I interviewed with that it was a great company to work at. Also, assured it was a long term position.
Very shortly after I started work, I learned they had not been honest with me. Also, it was difficult to work as I was not given a phone, and desk. The people in my group seemed to compete with each other and no real team work.
The VP I worked for (who was English) told me plainly that all of the upper management was European and only Europeans would be promoted into upper management. This VP was NOT qualified for the job, but was given the job as he was old buddies with the owners..
Because I am a long time professional and a hard worker, I overcame odds and started to churn out performance. Received excellent reviews from the other departments I interfaced with and every manufacturing plant I worked with. The VP and my Director seemed to get nervous as it was obvious I knew more about how to get things done than they did. I was terminated without cause less than a year on the job.
Really ruined my resume and I would not advise anyone to take a job here unless they were desperate. I learned they since also fired the poor chap who took the job after me. The new company I work at now has many former syncreon employees who were unhappy at syncreon.
