    I worked at SunGard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There was a lot of opportunity to learn and increase my skill. Got 4 certifications while working there and was only there for 2 years. Also, management implemented some of my ideas.

    Cons

    I am committed to knowledge management and knowledge sharing. This company is not.

    Advice to Management

    Giving lip service to knowledge management and knowledge sharing is not a recipe for success, nor is investing in cool tools and technology. No amount of technology amount of technology can make up for a corporation whose mission, leadership, and culture do not recognize and support knowledge sharing practices and investments in intellectual capital and innovation practices.

    I worked at SunGard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    SunGard offers good benefits, and has some great people working there, many who are devoted to their customers.

    Cons

    Since the LBO, the organizational structure has been transitioning from a business unit centered structure (or silos) to a far more inefficient functional organizational structure. This causes senior management to have to know and understand the operations of many business units, their needs, and their customer base. This is a failing proposition. The organization is also embracing off-shoring, an exercise that is doomed to fail in the long term, and which can only hurt the company as foreign employees leave SunGard to pursue better paying jobs, taking with them the expertise necessary to maintain operations.

    Advice to Management

    Put control of your business units back with the folks that know and understand the products. Senior management cannot know, nor understand, the breadth of business that they are being asked to, and as such, the business units suffer.

    I worked at SunGard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place for self-starters to work. Many challenging projects & clients to work on, teams were spread out with many interesting personalities. Compensation was commensurate with ability. Management was engaged with all project work at detail level. Quarterly Town Meetings to keep the staff informed of company progress.

    Cons

    Some projects required short deadlines for delivery causing teams to work long hours in short time spans to deliver projects on time. Demanding customers.
