Pros

The benefits are very good and there is an overall good feeling and support during performance of tasks. For the more junior roles, people get a lot of support and can spend the appropriate time learning the taks and responsibility.
Atmosphere wise, the atmosphere is fairly relaxed, it is quite easy to get help and advice from other people around you.

Cons

It is sometimes too segregated, there is very little cooperation between product lines and it is very difficult to move between product lines.
Once an employee achieves the most she can advance in the London office of the respective business unit, the almost natural progression is to use this professionalism in other business units. this is rarely done in Sungard, there is no benefit to applying for a role from within sundard than from without.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

See above. Sungard is huge and should have better cooperation and support between business units.

    Pros

    Great place to learn about technology and its uses in financial institutions. However depending on the product you are working on the technology can be up to date or rather old.
    Excellent benefits package.

    Cons

    Not much interaction between different product lines. Great overlap between some product offerings. Some product lines cannot be support well due to key staff not being retained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more effort to retain key people in products that are acquired. More effort necessary to leverage talent across different product lines.
