Pros

6+ years of steady work
Great technologies
Strong middle management

Cons

everything above is gone .. ALL in PUNE INDIA
the upper management has blinders on running from one trend to the next spending money in India like its going out of stile and driving customers away as fast as possible . unless your part of the cloud team .

Advice to ManagementAdvice

off shoring will kill the company. bring more jobs back to the us and give workers the ability to own a piece of the company

    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.
