    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at SunGard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    wages can be competitive and there's a good chance you'll run into some excellent people all throughout the organization that are great at their job and excellent to work with. They do attract some good talent.

    Cons

    Annual reorgs for no apparent reason. unless you're upper management or sales you won't be raking in big bonuses and perks but they are there. Massive drive to move everything possible to Florida, but again unless you're high enough up relocation help isn't available. Layoffs/downsizing/rightsizing seem to be happening more and more frequently with a big push to get and stay very lean. Work Life balance has become non-existant for many, depending on your role/department. Benefits get worse and worse each year.

    Advice to Management

    the company is TOO lean, with many co-workers working 6 days a week just to keep up, with no compensation for doing so. Forcing older workers out in favor of hiring someone with no experience for less in FL is seriously draining the knowledge base of Sungard's products and it is being reflected in the increasingly unhappy customer base.

    I worked at SunGard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance Excellent and competent peer co-workers Decent benefits

    Cons

    Unfocused product strategy; the company can't seem to decide between building or buying, which confuses the market as well. Very little communication between management and employees leaves you guessing as to how to benchmark your own performance.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to your employees what is expected of them and provide professional training and development if they lack specific skills.
