Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sungard Global Trading était autrefois appelé GL Trade et a été racheté par Sungard en 2010. Je prédis que cette entreprise va faire faillite dans un an ou deux si elle continue à gérer son personnel comme dans les années 80, sans aucune réactivité et san

Sungard Global Trading was previously GL Trade and was acquired by Sungard in the end of 2010. I predict this firm will go bankrupt within a year or two if it keeps managing people like in the 80s, with zero reactivity and no respect for their employees. Wake up Sungard GT before it's too late ! The world doesn't wait for loosers companies unfortunately, only the best will survive.

    OK Company with limited career growth opportunity

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in New York, NY

    I worked at SunGard

    Pros

    Good salary, flexible hours and work from home opportunities (for some), good work-life balance, some very talented, driven and friendly people, a drive to move to lean and agile project management and engineering practices, nice bright and modern offices (before move out of Midtown).

    Cons

    Benefits squeezed down year after year, little to no bonus payments, flat structure leading to limited career growth opportunities, some staff were not up to par but somehow managed to avoid staff cuts while talented people were lost, questionable standard of work from offshore office, little real synergy between product groups or business units.

    SunGard is not as well known in the industry as it should be, and where it is known it is because of one specific product and not for the company as a whole. Working for SunGard doesn't come with as high a reputation that it deserves.

    SunGard is a sales focused company. If you are not working directly in sales you will be second-class in the company.

    This is a very large company and senior management can appear to be out of touch with individual contributors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to promote the SunGard brand as a whole. Keep a high bar when hiring and don't be afraid to get rid of dead wood (but make sure it is the right people). Think long term when moving work offshore; is it really the right thing to move work offshore when it takes two to do the job of one onshore person and quality is compromised? Don't scrimp on benefits and bonuses; you will lose talent to competitors. Have a consistent and fair work from home policy. Don't focus so much on sales as a primary goal; focus on quality first and sales will come.
