I worked at SunGard full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Decent pay, diversity of people due to multiple acquisitions, global reach, good training and incentives for sales people. Some segments are doing very well with above par products and people.

Cons

Too conservative on innovation, lack of investment and ambition on R&D, synergies between various segments very limited. One weak segment can drag the reputation of the whole company down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Limit the reach and size and stick to what SunGard does best: Back and Middle Office, Accounting systems and Risk spin-off or sell under performing segments.

    I worked at SunGard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work Life balance
    Stick around for a year and you will get a bonus and appraisal without doing much work
    Cast-ism in Pune between management and employee

    Cons

    Upper management has no control over work content and have failed year on year.
    Many good people are leaving and only old crooks who want full salary+bonus and no work are left.
    No employee retention policy.
    Huge cost cutting across the board in every aspect.
    Sun is setting on this company and not good for career growth.
    Freshers and dynamic people keep away from Sungard India

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I dont think any advice will be taken by upper management hence none provided
