I have been working at SunGard full-time for less than a year

Pros

People - very smart and mostly helpful. Lots of modern tools.

Cons

Work life balance is terrible. It's OK - not to be working as long as your phone and laptop are handy. Expectation is that your life if now dedicated to the customer - not just you work day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't burn people out. Spend the money to get enough help.

    First few years were the best. But after changes in upper management, things went south.

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

    Pros

    The best parts of my experience was, 1) my co-workers and 2) the contact with our clients and the praise we were given by them for the great customer service our department provided.

    Cons

    SunGard has a bad habit of cutting staff at quarter end to meet their budget and if you are not on the ark then watch out the waters get choppy.
    A lot of smoke and mirrors with SunGard management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should keep the promises they make and really listen to their people on front lines and not the middle managers (and some upper managers) who are out to save themselves and their personal minions.

    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.
