Division Controller (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAAugust 16, 2016
Synaptics used to be an invigorating and innovative company.

Now the culture has changed drastically, and is no longer as enticing as it used to be.

Test Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJanuary 12, 2015
Like most Bay area companies, Synaptics also gives lot of importance to the employees. Free vending machines, ping pong table, gym are just a few perks of working here apart from the regular team outing which are great fun. But underneath all this, they also work hard. This is truly a work hard play hard company.

Contract Verification Engineer (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAJuly 22, 2014
This was a short term contract job. The management was somewhat disorganized; however, co-workers were a delight. The best part of the job was technically challenging, and the worst part was that I completed assignments ahead of time and was sometimes without anything to do.
