Current Employee - Monitoring Technician in Thornton, CO
Current Employee - Monitoring Technician in Thornton, CO

I have been working at SunGard full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Plenty of different technology to learn. Schedule gives plenty of days off.

Cons

No leadership qualities in management. No accountability. Projects are rarely fully thought through. A lot of micromanagement, does not promote a culture of creative thinking unless in a clique.

Very few written processes or impossible to find if they have been written. Feedback on how the process is working is not asked from the people that are required to follow it.

 Lower Management promotes Favoritism.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote cross-pollination of information between different departments. Change the mindset of pushing back tickets to the original assigning group to moving the ticket forward. It's all of our jobs to help the customer.

    Former Employee - Network Engineer in Thornton, CO

    I worked at SunGard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Loved my colleagues, many exceptional engineers.

    Cons

    Lower management is petty and plays favorites while upper managements only concern is to make sure that the Blackstone group gets it's cut.
    Soul crushing on-call
    Good old boy mentality with director level management and above.
    Aging architecture doesn't really align with it's wanting to be state of the art.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend the money to bring in the right tools and technology or sell the business to someone who will.
