    Software Developer sharing experience in Houston

    Developer (Current Employee)

    ProsCant think of any. In all, its a totally unpleasant environment to work.

    ConsLack of any direction. Too many customers on different releases. Almost every release was a nightmare for both the development teams and customers.Many of the managers are rude and do not like a difference of opinion.Most of development has been outsourced and the ones left are overworked and unappreciated. Morale is low, most employees are constantly looking to leave.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTechnical managers are supposed to be technical..

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    One of the 3 worst places I ever worked

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsSungard Energy Systems offers a very robust benefits program including a good 401K matching program, as well as a somewhat liberal time off program.

    ConsMy experience at Sungard Energy Systems was not positive in any way. In my experience there is no good interaction between upper management and regular employees and the division is very apparent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to the needs and desires of your regular employee base and make them feel more like their contribution and efforts matter.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
