Think twice before joining this company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at SunGard full-time for more than a year

ProsThe benefit package is competitive and they have a very good 401K. Co workers are friendly and there is always plenty of work to be done.

ConsLack of flexibility
No communication
Constant reorganization
The environment feels more like that of a kindergarten than an office, employees treated like children, scolded for various actions, like that of a child
Workload distribution is uneven, many have nothing to do while a few select employees have more to do than they can complete in an eight hour day
Overtime is encouraged and admired, hours worked are broadcasted by many as an accomplishment, it almost feels like a competition on who can work the most

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat those that work hard with respect and remove those that do not
Communicate better with employees
Realize that some who log in long hours are milking the system and stretching out their responsibilities. This is partially in response to low to no raise etc.
Provide a career path
Stop trying to pacify employees with hollow remarks on how management is taking steps to improve morale, we are smarter than that and it sounds ridiculous. We know change will never happen, its the Sungard way.
Odd behaviors are overlooked and almost encouraged.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Lack of any senior leadership and clear direction
