20+ years going from $50 million to $5 billion in revenue translated to fun, challenges, rewards & some disappointments.

I worked at SunGard

Pros

For many, SunGard was a start up that grew up and matured, so being a part of that was just incredibly rewarding and gave many an opportunity to flourish in an controlled entrepreneurial environment.

Cons

At a macro level, the pros also became challenges and as the Company matured the entrenched management struggled to keep up and adapt. At a micro level, the single largest deficiency is in the area of formal employee training/career development..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the silos and introduce substantive training/career development, especially management training. The best developer, sales person, customer service rep or accountant does not necessarily make the best manager.

    I worked at SunGard

    Pros

    Good experience for college graduates or those wanting to learn a new job in an IT environment.
    Good introduction to other industries

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities
    Not family friendly
    Management has no experience; nothing is consistent
    Reviews are done once a year; employees fill out reviews and then management hits a button. HR never reviewes the reviews for issues or concerns of employee
