- Are you a Current or Former Employee?Former employee
average - not sure what culture really mean.
not involved in decision making - just getting orders.
planning is not very good. not well coordinated.
a lot of secrecy. A lot of meetings repeating the same thing with various group of people. At the same time, no communications or coordination among groups. Just strange and dysfunctional.
it's just a job not a career.
in general facility is above average.
yes. but not every one recycles.
on the surface yes. but in less a year, we won't have any PTO. peer pressure to work more hours? yes in earlier days. these days no since I work pretty hard.
Yes. the company financial outlook is not good and to cut expense layoff is inevitable.
osha comliant? probably. training? no. But in general it's safe.
sort of. Yes
Company actively seeks employee feedback and acts on it. Dogs allowed on campus any time.
Synaptics likes employee referrals. If you are qualified and have someone to champion you, you have a fair chance.
Needs work, but efforts are under way. The management seems to be making this more of a priority.
There is a new focus on cost-cutting, and raises were delayed this year, but reasonable based on P/L.
Lots of opportunities to get involved in community, employer-matched donations to various causes.
This is a consistent issue, cited in employee surveys for last five years. No telecommuting allowed. If you hit the maximum hours of vacation available, the hours disappear. It has happened, to me and others.
Our logo doesn't really go on anything, so it's hard to point to something and say, "We did that." More of a "we helped them make that." But that's enough, really.
Company appears more stable than others I've worked for. I've been here over five years, I've never seen a layoff. There is a real effort made to reassign people before getting rid of them, even for people who maybe should have been let go.
There are elevators, but no door has a powered assist. On any building in San Jose or any other facility I've traveled to.
Most of the actual production happens elsewhere, so not much risk. Support for standing desks, professional help in setting up desk to minimize carpal tunnel.
Loyal to employees. I can bring my dog.
Work/life balance. No telecommuting. Support for mass transit is minimal. If you're going to insist people show up every day, you should help them get there.
