I worked at SunGard

Pros

Hi-tech; corporate discipline; opportunities for growth; rewards for success; responsibility & accountability enforced.

Cons

M&A's distracting and disturbing to the core.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the company public again and let other share in its success; private control is good for management but poor for everyone else, especially with only Board oversight.

    Pros

    one of the best things that I like working for SunGard is their flexibility in work schedules and their understanding of the balance of work and family. They do that better then any other company I have worked for.

    Cons

    In certain areas growth is not the easiest, the structure is more flat which is bad and good but makes climbing the corporate ladder difficult.

    Pros

    Liked the people I worked with.

    Cons

    SunGard is owned by large private equity companies. Their focus right now is cost reduction, even if it means cutting essential services, especially in the finance and accounting area. They are also an aggressive outsourcing company, moving many jobs to India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Until the 'liquidity event" happens, which will probably be in 2012, there is not much they can do. Cutting costs doesn't mean you get a better product or better information.
