    Pros

    The company is trying to grow talent internally by encouraging new career planning, and career discussions. Focus on trying to enhance existing software products and improving development.

    Cons

    Decentralization leads to lack of ownership and a lack of focus. Leadership is more than just reviewing where we have been, but it lays out a plan to the company as a whole regarding the plan on how to achieve the results. Simply saying something without a plan will not make it so.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate communicate communicate. If there is a plan for the future direction of the have the courage to share your vision and how you expect to get there.

    Pros

    You can express your professional opinion without fear of termination. You do get a fair benefits package and paid time off. Educational reimbursement is solid.

    Cons

    Though upper management is overly dependent on micro management. Even your emails are micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    Apparently everything I have to say advice wise is bad language.

    Pros

    Generally strong people that are easy to work with Good location (near 88 & 355) Company product is well-positioned

    Cons

    Serves banking and investment companies whose IT budgets are shrinking even as their profits remain healthy. Uncertainty: Business units within Financial Systems likely to be spun off or sold

    Advice to Management

    To senior management: Talking about building a great place to work isn't really buying you anything; since most people are used to talk and don't expect meaningful action.

    Pros

    Working at SunGaurd was a pleasant experience. There was friendly atmosphere amongst all of the different departments and the managers were patient and encouraging.

    Cons

    It wasn't the most career centric place. It didn't seem like there was a lot of room to grow or to move into a different role.

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Invest 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.
