I have been working at SunGard full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

People are for the most part highly qualified and motivated.

Senior management follows old boys network. You are clearly either in or you are out.

Advice to Management

Look at turnover rate and employee comments more seriously.

    Too many manual processes for a software company accounting center

    I have been working at SunGard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people at the base of the pyramid. Lots of free food.

    Cons

    Accounting uses a host of incompatible systems. The same data has to be re-keyed several times. Reconciliations are mostly manual. The shortcomings of the systems are made up for by employees' overtime. Personal growth is limited to lateral moves at best. Local senior management is beholden to corporate and seems powerless to push improvements through.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just focus on sales - realize that the company would collapse if the accounting center wasn't making sure that customers are billed. Invest in appropriate accounting systems and the people who use them.

    I worked at SunGard (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can express your professional opinion without fear of termination. You do get a fair benefits package and paid time off. Educational reimbursement is solid.

    Cons

    Though upper management is overly dependent on micro management. Even your emails are micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    Apparently everything I have to say advice wise is bad language.
