    I worked at SunGard

    Pros

    Hi-tech; corporate discipline; opportunities for growth; rewards for success; responsibility & accountability enforced.

    Cons

    M&A's distracting and disturbing to the core.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the company public again and let other share in its success; private control is good for management but poor for everyone else, especially with only Board oversight.

    Pros

    Nice perks: Can work from home from time to time, great gifts on your 5-10-15 years at work.

    Smart developers

    Constantly improving the release cycle and following the best practices.

    Cons

    Re-organization can happen frequently so this can be stressful.

    Depending on the above, you can have a manager that doesn't share the same vision or ideas at all with the previous one so you will need to adapt.
