    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 (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.

    I have been working at SunGard full-time

    Pros

    Not many. Management is too reactive to classify anything in the Pro category. Free Coffee.

    Cons

    Disorganized SR Management. Sales Ops team is a joke. IT ignores them. Declining Sales with no way to stop the bleeding. Data issues and irregularities. Constant fire drills. No plan. Tons of turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck with the spin off.

    Pros

    Some of the folks that work at Sungard are enjoyable to work with. The hours when employed were nice and convenient.

    Cons

    The Management is absolutely heartless. When Sungard acquired Comdisco, they of course promised the world. They decided to fire people the week before christmas. Made a comment to my manager which he didn't like. F' him. I hate this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
