Living in the past, running the company on a shoestring with a dis-functional leadership team.

Pros

There are no pros to working here...

Cons

Low salaries, no opportunity for advancement, poorly developed software solutions, management team that is not open to new ideas, micro-management from the top down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open your eyes. When you speak of operating under the guise of best practices, you need to realize that employees that have been in the company for 30 years have no sense of best practices. Open up the door to new ideas and insights before you tank the company with your controlling silo's and your micro-management.

    Pros

    Great benefits - generous vacation policy. They seem to have finally heard the complaints of a dissatisfied workforce and are making changes for the better.

    Cons

    Low wages and no raises. No opportunities for upward movement. Both of these are driven by our continual loss of customers to competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit reorganizing; Focus on Customer Service and new products. Stop nickel and diming. How hard should it be for a developed to acquire a $25 piece of software that will enhance productivity.

    Pros

    During my tenure with SunGard, the management team put a lot of programs and processes into place that helped employees grow and develop. The team truly understood where they were going and how to achieve the next level.

    Cons

    The constant change with little to no employee communication made it difficult to focus as you were always wondering when the ax was going to fall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate!
