    I have been working at Sungard Availability Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good people
    Clients
    Internal Support
    Salary is competitive

    Cons

    Too much bureacracy, too much red tape to accomplish real change in a reasonable time frame.
    Not enough training for managers - many are winging it. If you've got a good manager, great. If not, well you are on your own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make changes faster. Elimate barriers to change, eliminate knowledge silos. implement cross functional team projects to change processes. Stop making decisions in a vaccum. Stop the yearly reduction in force at holiday time, it's tough for the employees on both sides of the cuts.
