The people you work with make the job.

Applications Support (Current Employee)
Bethlehem, PA

I have been working at SunGard full-time for more than 8 years

ProsWonderful people to work with.

ConsAdequate raises and bonuses are only given at the management level.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in the staff who are non-management. Family life, benefits and salary are not adequate to keep good employees around once the exonomy picks up.

OK place - not totally honest in interviews so beware

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at SunGard full-time for less than a year

ProsPeople - very smart and mostly helpful. Lots of modern tools.

ConsWork life balance is terrible. It's OK - not to be working as long as your phone and laptop are handy. Expectation is that your life if now dedicated to the customer - not just you work day.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't burn people out. Spend the money to get enough help.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

First few years were the best. But after changes in upper management, things went south.

Systems Analyst (Former Employee)

I worked at SunGard full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe best parts of my experience was, 1) my co-workers and 2) the contact with our clients and the praise we were given by them for the great customer service our department provided.

ConsSunGard has a bad habit of cutting staff at quarter end to meet their budget and if you are not on the ark then watch out the waters get choppy.
A lot of smoke and mirrors with SunGard management.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey should keep the promises they make and really listen to their people on front lines and not the middle managers (and some upper managers) who are out to save themselves and their personal minions.

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