I have been working at SunGard

Pros

The work s basically easy but not challenging.

Cons

Upper management doesn't follow through on suggestions, requests or problems.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employees directly instead of hiding behind middle management. A lot falls between the cracks.

    Pros

    If you are a coding monkey, work there ....and you get free soda and coffe. They will take you once a year to have fun in Hersey Park...

    Cons

    almost no knowledge sharing is promoted, feels like a secret society. Nobody, is interested if you are trying to suggest better ways to accomplish things. If you happen to try to introduce a new technology and approches and they happen not to understand it (to advanced for them , maybe) , you will be told to learn basics....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat your people with respect....
    and listen if somebody is trying to make suggestion which could save you $17 millions ....no big amount I guess.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Take good care of you loyal and good people.
