Pros

Decent benefits. However, the work environment varies drastically depending on which division you are in. If you are lucky, you can work with hard working, highly skilled people. SunGard is large and hence there are opportunities to advance if you are willing to look beyond your own unit.

Cons

Too quick to layoff in order to make their numbers. Consolidation and layoffs are eliminating many solid employees, leaving those left overworked and overstretched. Consolidation is happening faster than remaining employees can obtain the skills and industry/product knowledge to cover new tasks.

Advice to Management

Senior management at the division level needs to better understand the business model of the products under them. While standard practices can lead to some efficiencies, remember that an acquired company was doing something right prior to acquisition.

    Pros

    Gain great work experience and changeling jobs. You can learn a lot but can also work very hard. Some positions require a lot of travel and bosses don't always take that into consideration.

    Cons

    Management quick to lay off to make numbers and get their bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Take good care of you loyal and good people.

    Pros

    Well, after thinking of something positive to say about Sungard, I can confidentially say that the paychecks were always deposited on time.

    Cons

    Low pay, poor benefits, lackluster support from senior management. I can go on.

    Advice to Management

    Start over from scratch.
