    Former Employee - Business Development in New York, NY

    I worked at SunGard Financial Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are in the right place at the right time, the annual reorgs and management shuffles can get you promoted.
    Lots of opportunity for client facing people.
    Before the private equity buy-out, ESOP compensation was rather generous.

    Cons

    Operates like a holding company without much opportunity to move to other business areas.
    Company innovates through acquisition more than by using the existing talent.
    Private equity means little comp outside salary and bonus/commissions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look within the existing businesses for people who can benefit other divisions and create career paths. Also, either go public or replacements for ESOP that allow employees to participate in the company's growth.
