I worked at SunGardPros
Good salary, flexible hours and work from home opportunities (for some), good work-life balance, some very talented, driven and friendly people, a drive to move to lean and agile project management and engineering practices, nice bright and modern offices (before move out of Midtown).Cons
Benefits squeezed down year after year, little to no bonus payments, flat structure leading to limited career growth opportunities, some staff were not up to par but somehow managed to avoid staff cuts while talented people were lost, questionable standard of work from offshore office, little real synergy between product groups or business units.
SunGard is not as well known in the industry as it should be, and where it is known it is because of one specific product and not for the company as a whole. Working for SunGard doesn't come with as high a reputation that it deserves.
SunGard is a sales focused company. If you are not working directly in sales you will be second-class in the company.
This is a very large company and senior management can appear to be out of touch with individual contributors.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Do more to promote the SunGard brand as a whole. Keep a high bar when hiring and don't be afraid to get rid of dead wood (but make sure it is the right people). Think long term when moving work offshore; is it really the right thing to move work offshore when it takes two to do the job of one onshore person and quality is compromised? Don't scrimp on benefits and bonuses; you will lose talent to competitors. Have a consistent and fair work from home policy. Don't focus so much on sales as a primary goal; focus on quality first and sales will come.RecommendsNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
