My experience at SunGard was short but too much reorganization led to layoffs

I worked at SunGard full-time for more than a year

Pros

The people were talented and skilled in their positions and eager to share their expertise and bringing a new employee up to speed. The technology was mostly up to date and properly managed.

Cons

Upper management was unsure of what direction the company was headed, too many divisions (the result of mergers and acquisitions) made movement in the company difficult.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reorganize the company based on industry sectors, merge and sell-off the unprofitable divisions and concentrate the remaining resources on the profitable areas.

    I worked at SunGard full-time

    Pros

    Relation with colleagues were rather good.
    It's a very good stepping stone for learning the Financial industry business products from Sungard as you have access to a lot of information that client can't have

    Cons

    Lack of share of information internally about company strategy
    Attitude with client
    Unbalanced pool of resources
    Weirdly some products are over priced / service and others don't get the level of revenue allowing the adequate level of resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More attention to client satisfaction by product.

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
