    Pros

    Compensation was good, plenty of physical resources.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management, Inconsistent, illogical and arbitrary decision making patterns and ever changing policies suited for the short term convenience of the powers-that-be. Performance reviews of very poor quality. Cliquish and hyper-political work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Get some backbone, roll up your sleeves and engage with your committed employees.

    Pros

    Compensation is fair, vacation policy is good, overall benefits are good, relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Management is completely dis-organized. Very poor training for managers in a company this size. Work-life balance is poor. Lack of investment in products makes cleaning up the mess very difficult. IPO is coming and I fear things will be getting worse.

    Advice to Management

    None, they don't listen anyway.

    Pros

    Worked with some great people, benefits are OK.

    Cons

    Constant over time, unrealistic deadlines. Upper management is either too cheap to hire enough people to do the work or just don't care about the staff. Management only values people who are in the office for long hours, regardless of whether they are working or not.

    Advice to Management

    Take a walk around the office and get to know the people who work for you. Ask them about their experience at SunGard and work life balance. There is more to life than working 24/7

    Pros

    - Good work life balance - Pay is slightly above industry average. Best is the bonus part. On an avg they give 100% bonus. - Promotions are decent as well. Usually you get promoted every 3-4 years as long as you put in at least the minimum work required from your end. - HR & admin is responsive and do work sometime to make employee's life better. - Senior mgmt will hear you out. Though I must add that there might be no visible action on your recommendation. - No. of days of leaves are pretty much OK - I have head that shift based employees are paid good amount of shift allowance in addition to cab facility. - Canteen food is decent enough. Nothing spectacular.

    Cons

    - Very high upper management changes. - Company is having too much debt due to large number of product purchases. - Business heads do not communicate much on matters pertaining to vision & goals. So you will not know which products they might sell off or decide to continue. A very risky proposition. - As this is a private company & not listed, you will not hear much news about it. So be prepared for shocking sell off news of some product every 6-12 months!! - Almost no onsite for most employees. - Some managers are workaholic (13 - 14 hrs) and they expect the employees to put in the same amount of work. Though client doesn't expect the same at all.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to employees with your plans & goals for the future. Few workaholic managers need to understand that employees unlike you have families to attend to. They can't work on your whims and fancies.
