I worked at SunGard full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

- The people I worked with on a daily basis were great.
- Process and Procedures were well documented and clear. Human Resources "stuff" was always easy to take care of.
- Benefits and PTO are very good.

Cons

- Management (middle and senior level) cannot see past themselves. I am not sure if this "closed minded" philosophy is dictated from the Executive Team, but it exist across multiple segments.
-Failure to reward employees with a pay raise. In my 5 years, never received more then a cost of living raise

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reconsider the philosophy for performance reviews. The current reviews were a joke and provide zero road map for development.

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

    Pros

    - Great to get experience.
    - People you work with are nice and smart.
    - Facilities are more than OK.

    Cons

    - Lack of strategy : today is "do what we were doing yesterday" even if everybody acknowledged that it is no longer working.
    - Package is below average/median.
    - No carrier management. You see the HR department twice, first and last day, and your manager has no say on his/her budget nor carrier development paths.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top managers: stop focusing on the IPO and check the mid-management, right now they are left to their own device with very little success.

    I worked at SunGard full-time

    Pros

    Some large clients. Not many positives at SunGard.

    Cons

    Terrible sales compensation plan, which includes multiple low caps on commissions, low commissions, and some very low commissions.

    Management is all politics, no vision or leadership.

    SunGard is really a cobbled together group of companies, that is not well integrated.

    A strong "yes man" culture stiffles creativity and productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to be replaced, company restructured.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
