A company in transition

Vice President (Former Employee)
Jacksonville, FL (US)

I worked at SunGard full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSunGard offers good benefits, and has some great people working there, many who are devoted to their customers.

ConsSince the LBO, the organizational structure has been transitioning from a business unit centered structure (or silos) to a far more inefficient functional organizational structure. This causes senior management to have to know and understand the operations of many business units, their needs, and their customer base. This is a failing proposition. The organization is also embracing off-shoring, an exercise that is doomed to fail in the long term, and which can only hurt the company as foreign employees leave SunGard to pursue better paying jobs, taking with them the expertise necessary to maintain operations.

Advice to Senior ManagementPut control of your business units back with the folks that know and understand the products. Senior management cannot know, nor understand, the breadth of business that they are being asked to, and as such, the business units suffer.

Good work life balance though a lot of micro management, and US focussed company

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Pune (Brazil)

I have been working at SunGard full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood work life balance, one can get home at a decent time, spend time with family and kids, Work is technology driven, if you get your numbers, you make the cut, no nonsence..

ConsTends to be heavily reliant on US based market, not much by way of investment in product development as such, tend to be more sales and services driven.. Sr management tends to micro manage.. which leads to trust issues

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more hands on, understand what employees are looking for..

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good company to work for.

Technology Consultant (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at SunGard full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood work/life balance. Opportunity for promotion/recognition if you put in the work. Vacation days above average for the US. Could get more sick days.

ConsHowever, in terms of actual positions to go up the chain, it is limited unless you count on employee turnover. It is more and more acting like a "big company". Bureaucracy is growing.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to basics. Streamline the bureaucracy.
