    Pros

    Great organisation to sell for. Perk, power and money.

    Dwindling pockets of professional, dedicated and individual contributors.

    Cons

    Fanciful marketing programs that creates an illusion of career progression to lure in fresh graduates. The reality is that fresh graduates are meant to be cheap and disposable meat-shield to be thrown in front of clients.

    Work-life balance is non existent. Most projects are in death-march mode, customer support consist of being abused by client and trash talked by middle-management for not managing client expectation.

    Increasing sales presence thanks need to juice up balance sheet in preparation for IPO. Think 2 Sales to 1 Project resource. Strong process in place to assure revenue so that senior management can move on to the next cash cow.

    If you are a potential customer, be very careful. You will be misled. Check multiple reference through your own network and not just the ones provided by the sales. Check where the reference is working after the deal is closed.

    Company reorganisation, followed by retrenchment, is a annual event. The thinning middle management has led to growing psychological pressure imposed onto rank and file.

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

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are self motivated and strive to create and add value to the company. Open working environment with generally very helpful colleagues who are willing to aid and guide people who are willing to learn and contribute

    Cons

    Very sales centric with an obsession with hitting targets and revenues. Organisation is made up of several companies bought over time leading to messy silos and overlapping products. Middle managers are overwhelmed with daily responsibilities on top of managing teams making it easy for incompetent staff to hide and shirk responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SunGard is a very global organisation with a lack of culture due to a large geographical spread of offices and an obsession with selling. Consider grooming talents within the organisation to build a stronger culture (and eventually stronger managers) rather than rely on the experienced workforce who have no loyalty and flutter to the next higher paying vendor.

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

    Pros

    Generally little micro-management, able to work independently with relative autonomy. Often given responsibility within short time of joining.
    Strong products in most areas
    Most managers allow some working from home although not formally implemented

    Cons

    Little training/development although management/HR are trying to address this
    Big focus on cost & bottom line
    Working practices dependent on manager
    Business segments are silo-ed with minimal opportunity to move across
    Frequent reorgs and structural changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are serious about training and development, you need to allocate resources and money and apply it across the board to all functions
