    ProsThe SCS Management Team is a very high integrity group. They are focused on the team and do everything in their power to help make the consultants successful.

    Great exposure to Financial Services firms

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSunGard is a privately held company with hundreds of businesses surrounding niche markets in the banking and investment banking communities. You can get great exposure to these firms while working in a large company with a small business feel.

    ConsProjects often surround implementation of the firm's own proprietary software technology. Also, projects often have an IT component and may not involve non-IT related consulting services.
