    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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
