    Pros

    Software provider with a global presence Major clients with high bill rates Growing

    Cons

    Lack of solid processes inline with industry standards Latest and greatest technology tools aren't in use 20 year old technology Hires a lot of interns with no knowledge of industry

    Advice to Management

    Primary focus should be on providing high quality software solution. There seems to be a focus on the financial side with little attention paid to the technology side of the products. Invest in a level of quality standards program. IEEE may be a good start.

    Pros

    Lot of scope enhancing domain knowledge, Has a very good domain expertise Technical works also good, get good exposure if person takes the initiatives

    Cons

    Need to think about the current competitor & their strategy and need to take some corrective action plan. Senior Management not so pro-active Current company strategy indicates sooner or later company is going to sale their products. Lot of cost deduction - No any attention on Employees engagement

    Pros

    SunGard is a global company. They are known for their education and financial software. Several opportunities to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership who are knowledgeable in the application they manage. The company doesn't invest in new technology nor in their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to invest in all of their software. The application needs to be upgrade as new technology become available enhancing the existing application. Need to stay competitive.

    Pros

    Had own office, dress very casual (polo shirts, jeans), Thursday morning breakfast paid for by the company, a lot of excellent training. Pay and benefits were excellent as well.

    Cons

    The application was originally written in VFP with SQL Server back end. I was to help fix bugs and add minimal new functionaly as a .NET team was put together to convert the VFP app to .NET. The VFP application was extremely terribly written and dealing with it day in and day out was a real mess and extremely frustrating knowing we were only keeping it alive long enough for the conversion to .NET. The leadership struggled with this setup. Especially since new features were being added to the VFP applications. It was going to be a very long process and left after one year. I couldn't deal with attempt to fix a mess and at the same time adding features that would sometimes break other areas of the application. Biggest mess I've ever seen.

    Pros

    1. Get good functional knowledge, if you are in the right team. 2. Job security 3. Time flexibility

    Cons

    1. No cutting edge technology or latest development techniques in use. Have to dig into code written in 90s and also have to write code as if you are in 90s. They have just started using agile which seems to have just increased the chaos. 2. Poor food quality 3. No transportation facility (Pune) Conclusion: Not good if you are a technology geek. But sungard can help you get domain knowledge and client exposure if you are in Implementation team.

    Advice to Management

    Move on to accept new technologies and development practices.
