Current Employee - Software Developer III

I have been working at SunGard

Pros

Pays fairly well for the area. Has provided some training. Using leading technologies. Has been getting better at expanding in to other possible areas.

Cons

Current project has been strongly encouraging employees to work more time then is clocked. Work moral has gone down quite a bit with recent layoffs. Very little encouragement has been given towards letting the employees have a say in what happens.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look in to better ways to motivate employees (there are some good youtube videos by RSA). Focus more on treating all sites the same.

    Pros

    Best reasons are good quality of work depending upon the project , good bonuses , competitive salaries. Work environment is good, work- life balance is good.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides are again not so good work if project is not good , some unnecessary processes, compensation could be better and employee care is ok.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee care could be better for such a good company, unnecessary process should be removed. Compensation could be better for such a big company.

    I have been working at SunGard

    Pros

    There isn't a lot of micromanaging. Some of my coworkers are great people. They are just in a bad environment.

    Cons

    Those that play the political game are far more successful at SunGard than those that do a great job. There are too many "yes men" that want to please management and won't tell them the truth or question decisions. They operate in chaos mode more often than not. If they'd spend more time upfront on projects, they would save time on the back end. They also focus too much in hiring on application knowledge and not on technical skills. There's also too much growth in India and not enough in the U.S, and Cris Conde tells everyone this is because they "go where the talent is" versus admitting it's because labor is cheap there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a shakeup among some in management there if things are really ever to change.
