Pros

Flexible hours and some of the people are great to work with

Cons

HR was bad. She was unapproachable and not receptive to employees concerns and issues. Raises were unfair. Employees that knew how to get around the work were rewarded while the employees that did their work on time in addition to helping other were never given any type of recognition. The hours were flexible, but were always abused by a few and those few were never approached. Management knew about this, but choose to ignore it. When you you bring your concerns to management, they would tell you to just worry about yourself. Thus rewarding the employees that don't do work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to all your employees and not just the ones that do the work all the time. Pay attention to the ones that come in late and leave early. Pay attention to the ones that water plants all day and look out the window. Make sure they are pulling thier weight in the scope of the company and stop rewarding them for things that do not accomplish. There is a problem when management keeps and employee whose work comes back and someone else has to restest the work again.

    Pros

    Sungard has great benefits and is extremely understanding about taking vacation and leave. The pay is adequate and the people you work with are generally good people

    Cons

    Work can be very boring. My particular sector doesn't have a lot of room for advancement. There can be infighting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Sungard should offer some sort of team building exercises or trips somewhere. Maybe just one or two days a year where the message is about fun.

    Listen to employees sometimes instead of middle management.

    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.
