    I have been working at SunGard

    Pros

    Flexibility, work-life balance, location, decent benefits

    Cons

    The intensive efforts to reorganize and "get lean" resulting in high employee turnover and layoffs, led to lack of retention of skilled and loyal employees. Over a short period of time, several managers left positions for new roles internally or new opportunities outside of the organization. Serious lack of communication among the staff as the reorganization efforts ramped up. Often left to make sense of new role in a short amount of time with limited planning and understanding of certain department functions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication to the staff to the extent possible and perform better planning to manage department change.

    Pros

    Very good benefits package including vacation accrual and tuition reimbursement and work/life is good depending on your location.

    Cons

    It depends on your location and your manager, as in any company. some divisions have alot of attention directed to them and their product is kept up to date. others are not actively supported and they end up getting laid off and / or their office closes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish it was more structured in terms of pay increases but I think they have made small steps in the right direction.

    Pros

    Great organisation to sell for. Perk, power and money.

    Dwindling pockets of professional, dedicated and individual contributors.

    Cons

    Fanciful marketing programs that creates an illusion of career progression to lure in fresh graduates. The reality is that fresh graduates are meant to be cheap and disposable meat-shield to be thrown in front of clients.

    Work-life balance is non existent. Most projects are in death-march mode, customer support consist of being abused by client and trash talked by middle-management for not managing client expectation.

    Increasing sales presence thanks need to juice up balance sheet in preparation for IPO. Think 2 Sales to 1 Project resource. Strong process in place to assure revenue so that senior management can move on to the next cash cow.

    If you are a potential customer, be very careful. You will be misled. Check multiple reference through your own network and not just the ones provided by the sales. Check where the reference is working after the deal is closed.

    Company reorganisation, followed by retrenchment, is a annual event. The thinning middle management has led to growing psychological pressure imposed onto rank and file.
