If you consider yourself a professional in your field, stay away.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at SunGard full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCoworkers were great. Clients were terrific to work with and provided interesting business challenges.

ConsManagement is the worst I've ever seen, from mid level to the business unit VPs. They have no experience in solving problems, very poor negotiation skills and deplorable people skills. Managers are petty and childish. There is too much micromanagement which squashes creativity and innovation. Promotions are based on 'old boy' cliques and friendships. Actual skill, experience and results are not part of the equation. Turnover of skilled employees is high, while employees with lesser skill and experience remain and are expected to solve complex problems with no direction from management or documented processes to reference.

Advice to Senior ManagementReal change and progress won't occur until significant management changes are made. Middle managers need to be evaluated on their ability to retain employees as well as providing direction, processes and procedures for their teams. If a manager cannot meet these kind of minimal standards,, they should not be in the position. Stop promoting your friends.

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