    Love my coworkers

    I have been working at SunGard

    Pros

    I have an amazing group of coworkers, which is one the reasons that I have stayed as long as I have.
    My immediate managers are caring and genuinely look out for those people who work under them .

    Cons

    Lack of concern for employee morale, limited ability to move up in the company, high benefit copays and stagnant salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the lack of even basic loving raises and the increased cost of benefits, many employees are making less than they did years ago.

    Sales People Treated like "Pawns" towards The Management's Quota and Club Reservations

    Current Employee - Senior Sales Executive  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - Senior Sales Executive in New York, NY

    I have been working at SunGard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They serve Starbucks coffee...and have a nice surplus of legal pads and pens.

    Cons

    Sales Compensation and Quotas are not in line with the Industry trends and the "solution selling" messaging the company subscribes to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to actually listen to the Sales People on what is going on and work accordingly to streamline instead of making "gut" like decisions or picking favorites when driving opportunities.

    People are for the most part highly qualified and motivated.
