    I worked at Synchrony full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    With a GE heritage, Synchrony started well. The CEO is amazingly energetic. The focus is always on engagement and leadership in US is very well connected. Carrying on with the same GE culture. Hired highly talented folks at all level during the carve-out. In India, its a great working experience for the Associates who are taking calls.

    Cons

    It is a different experience altogether to work in its India office though for senior level folks. Kind of political and closed environment. Not much hiring talent from the market at the senior level (may be coz of insecurity). One needs to learn the art of managing perceptions by treating US leadership with 5 star arrangements while they are in India.

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent talent from the market and break the silo (of CEO and his close associates)

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Synchrony full-time

    Pros

    * Tons of opportunities for training and development * Great HR, a lot is invested in people here * Making a concerted effort to re-invent itself as the financial services industry changes * Great company culture * Huge organization and lots of opportunity for movement, both horizontally as well as vertically * Executive leadership is available and friendly

    Cons

    * Very easy for low value employees to just stick around forever * Tons of process/bureaucracy. It was a GE subsidiary so a lot has been inherited * Things happen, but they take time. Very consensus driven.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to change, so many things happen here because 'that's just what we've always done.'

    Pros

    Great people who go out of their way to help you. Very digitally advanced from a bank standpoint and open to try new things.

    Could use more structure in terms of multiple team interactions.

    Keep doing what you do now.

    Pros

    Work-Life balance, benefits, innovative, client-focused, tech savvy.

    Cons

    Mid management , leadership is poor. Company won't be able to advance until the old GE culture is corrected- needs fresh ideas and fresh blood.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the political drama that goes on each day by empowering good leaders.
