Should be the last resort for IT Talent

Service Delivery Manager (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA

ProsPay is competitive
Decent benefits
Great coworkers
Liberal remote work policies

ConsConstant reorgs and layoffs
Requires employees to pay for travel out of pocket and get reimbursed
Depressing work areas with vast empty poorly lit cubicle farms and dirty and worn out office furniture
No training
Management lacks focus, direction, and integrity
Outdated and disjointed internal systems

Sungard claims they want to be the IT employer of choice. They really should be the IT employer of last resort. New hires are dumped in depressing work areas and given little or no training or orientation. While the people for the most part are helpful and friendly, there is an overall morale problem brought on and fostered by frequent layoffs. Upper management's solution to every problem is to "reorganize", which is a euphemism for layoffs, and then rehire the positions of the staffers who are the victims of management's ineptness and lack of vision and customer focus. My best advice if you must accept a position at Sungard is to keep looking for something else while you're working there so that you can lay them off before they do it to you.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize that when an executive constantly feels the need to reorganize his organization the executive is the problem, not the organization.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
