    Pros

    Excellent work culture, very helpful colleagues and a beautiful office made it a wonderful experience each day. Lunch was provided for free each day which was a great perk. The upper management takes great care of the entry level employees, and there is very friendly atmosphere in the work place. All in all, a great experience.

    Cons

    The internship program was excellent but could have been structured differently.The location of the office is far from any financial centers. Office activities, especially aimed at the younger employees would be a great addition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and hire more entry level, young employees.

    Pros

    Good working culture, smart colleagues and very good teamwork. Work life balance there is a true story.

    Cons

    Should provide more technical training to junior staffs. Internal transfer opportunities there could be rare.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are nice, but will be better if they keep things simple and explain more about the future outlook to us.

    Pros

    SunGard is a wonderful workplace that gives each individual the independence to perform tasks in their own style, introduce ideas, learn technology, propose to implement it, receive due appreciation and work with best in industry people.
    It lets you have an excellent work life balance. If you are expecting a kid or dealing with personal problems that consume your time SunGard is the employer you want to be with.
    Office culture is amazing. No strictness in dress code, wear what you feel like irrespective of which day it is, of course shorts and chappals never look good in office but even if you turn up in them, no one there to stop you...
    They may not be out there flaunting about being values driven but believe me over time SunGard's work environment will automatically impart some values.
    Compensation well above industry standards.

    Cons

    You can get lazy if you aren't self motivated and always willing to generate new ideas and make plans because like I said in the pros they give you lot of freedom at performing your work.

    Advice to Management

    Warn and toughen up the slacking individuals when you identify them instead of surprising them during RIF.

    Pros

    Dynamic environment that is open to new ideas of how to do business. A wealth of solutions and services that have been acquired over the years coupled with a desire to innovate and develop means a long runway of success is in front of this company. I feel like I'm a part of something big about to happen.

    Cons

    Dismantling old silos and old ways of thinking is akin to turning a big ship around... slow course corrections have to be made incrementally.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to over communicate the why of changes and the ultimate destination, as we hit milestones along the strategic path.

    Nothing to criticize really, it was the perfect job at that time for me.
