Lousy Management, Capped/Low Commissions, So-So Products

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Wayne, PA

ProsSome large clients. Not many positives at SunGard.

ConsTerrible sales compensation plan, which includes multiple low caps on commissions, low commissions, and some very low commissions.

Management is all politics, no vision or leadership.

SunGard is really a cobbled together group of companies, that is not well integrated.

A strong "yes man" culture stiffles creativity and productivity.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeeds to be replaced, company restructured.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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