    I have been working at Sungard Availability Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - I have worked for and with some great people in this organization. Too bad they never seem to get recognized.
    - I have been exposed to many technologies which will advance my career once I leave this pit.
    - Benefits used to be decent.
    - I have remained employed for several years.

    Cons

    - Management lacks vision, generally lacks respect for the 'worker', and makes decisions arbitrarily in an ad-hoc fashion.
    - Necessary metrics are not used to ensure quality delivery of products and services which could reduce our customer attrition rate.
    - Leadership seems out of touch with the industry; plans change from day-to-day. What the hell is going on? Don't ask them, they won't tell you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - The board should consider a new CEO.
    - Executive leadership should be promoted from within the ranks of the organization: somebody who has seen it all with SunGard and knows what is best.
    - Middle management should be provided with leadership training.
    - Pay the attention.
    - Stop micro-managing.

    I have been working at Sungard Availability Services full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Some flexibility is offered, but with big trade offs.

    Cons

    Poor communication and leadership. Constant layoffs and no stability. Too many people operating inefficiently and in silos. Minimal to no salary increases for the last few years, which are not offset by the increase in employee healthcare contributions.
