    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Generally easy going atmosphere but with the upcoming IPO they have been cost cutting

    Cons

    Pay is not going to keep or attract talent. Poor benefits packages. No employee profit sharing or equity compensation except at senior management levels, Stodgy mindset and slow moving. Technology is a decade behind and only changes due to end of life issues related to support. There's no real career path when you become mid level. All business units are very silo-ed - and cross product integration is nearly nonexistent. SunGard was constructed like a Frankenstein monster - bought and assembled via acquisition. Little organic innovation and innovation and forward thinking is neither rewarded nor is it encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Increase performance based compensation. Get rid of long time employees which can not think outside of the box. Get rid of dead wood and increase pay with those cost savings. Hire talent and allow for innovation. Reward creativity and focus on organic internal growth.

    Interview

    It was a rather simple technical interview. They asked about C#, C++, SQL server related programming questions. Also, a little bit more on financial models, such as BS model, some distributions, etc.
