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 – more... 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. – less
