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.

    I have been working at SunGard full-time for 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.
