    Could be great, but drug down by "real" company values.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou can express your professional opinion without fear of termination.
    You do get a fair benefits package and paid time off.
    Educational reimbursement is solid.

    ConsThough upper management is overly dependent on micro management. Even your emails are micromanaged.

    Advice to Senior ManagementApparently everything I have to say advice wise is bad language.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very sales centric organisation

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsGreat place to work if you are self motivated and strive to create and add value to the company. Open working environment with generally very helpful colleagues who are willing to aid and guide people who are willing to learn and contribute

    ConsVery sales centric with an obsession with hitting targets and revenues. Organisation is made up of several companies bought over time leading to messy silos and overlapping products. Middle managers are overwhelmed with daily responsibilities on top of managing teams making it easy for incompetent staff to hide and shirk responsibilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSunGard is a very global organisation with a lack of culture due to a large geographical spread of offices and an obsession with selling. Consider grooming talents within the organisation to build a stronger culture (and eventually stronger managers) rather than rely on the experienced workforce who have no loyalty and flutter to the next higher paying vendor.
