I worked at SunGard

Pros

SunGard is at times an amazing place to work, and then you get the other extreme where you want to just shake your head in astonishment at some decisions. More often that not, you get an opportunity to work in an international setting and those Sungard colleagues sitting across from you are smarter than you, more experienced than you, and knows everything about you before you even sat down. Then you recognize how cool and down to earth almost everybody is and you get on with it. You always learn something new everyday.

Cons

I'll list in no particular order:
1)Its huge - 23,000 employees around the world.
2)Its fragmented - Very large segments all vying for the attention and budget/compensation dollars. 3)There's a reorg every year - new managers every year, new expectations.
4)Very top heavy
5)BS routine about "titles don't really matter" - really?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You've got really great people working at SunGard. They are a dedicated and professional bunch. Take care of them and they will take care of you.

    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.

    I have been working at SunGard

    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.
