What do you like best?

The overall power, especially versioning and conflict resolution. Also the flexibility to manage different ways of working. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Way too complicated and non-intuitive for the over-burdened software engineer. At the company where we used Synergy I was one of a small number of "Domain experts" tasked with helping others to use Synergy successfully. This ought not to be necessary. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is effective in presenting a clear layout of the file system when checking in and out files. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This is the bane of my departments existence, almost as universally hated as Satan. At a review session concerning our department, the main issue preventing us from getting our job done was synergy. It is TERRIBLE at going backwards, is TERRIBLE at merging, and is extremely poor at building baselines. Additionally, I have been told it is extremely expensive. Go with a newer software like Git. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don't use rational synergy Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using it as a version control system and a configuration management. It does a good enough job to not destroy everything. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
