    I have been working at SunGard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    High visibility for accomplishments.
    Mobility for those that work hard and work in a growing product/segment.
    Most managers are very flexible with time and working remotely.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy of a normal large company(job reqs are approved after we need someone for a month, rather than a month before they are needed)

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with.

    Cons

    Adequate raises and bonuses are only given at the management level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the staff who are non-management. Family life, benefits and salary are not adequate to keep good employees around once the exonomy picks up.

    Former Employee - Technology Consultant in New York, NY

    I worked at SunGard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Opportunity for promotion/recognition if you put in the work. Vacation days above average for the US. Could get more sick days.

    Cons

    However, in terms of actual positions to go up the chain, it is limited unless you count on employee turnover. It is more and more acting like a "big company". Bureaucracy is growing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to basics. Streamline the bureaucracy.

    I have been working at SunGard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable people, global presence, name recognition

    Cons

    On-going cost and benefits reduction program (going on for 5 years), lack of investment into product development, no collaboration between product groups, impossible to fulfill quotas, new commission plan has lower payouts, high turn-over, just announced up-coming head count reduction because they have not met thier financial projections, management is only focused on thier budget and spreadsheets,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your products and people. You neglect both
