    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at SunGard (Pune (India)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was a campus interview process. There were 5 rounds. First round was aptitude test. The test was entirely on quantitative aptitude. The questions were similar to those in R. S. Agarwal book. They selected 74 candidates out of 130 from test for the next round. Second round was group discussion. In GD, candidates have to decide any one topic unanimously and have to present their views on the topic. They selected 41 members from it for the next round. The third round was technical interview. The questions were based on resume, sql (ACID properties, Joins, diff. between mysql and mongodb), projects, 1 problem statement like check the string is palindrome or not (solve using pen paper, they just want logic and pseudo code). They selected 16 candidates for the next round. 4th round was again technical come hr round. Some questions were based on projects. It was very easy round. Only basic technical knowledge is sufficient. They selected 11 candidates for the next round. The next round was purely hr interview and was just a formality. Sungard selected all 11 candidates from hr interview.

    Interview Questions

    • He asked me about stochastic processes and Ito integral. At the moment I could't explain those with confidence, so later he asked me easier questions, about stocks, bonds, value at risk, etc. Finally he asked ma about a game with dice tossing:

      You are playing a game, in which you roll a fair, 6-sided die. If you roll x, you get x dollars.
      1 - How much would you pay for this game?
      2 - Pretend that you can reroll if you’re not satisfied with the first roll, but that you must accept the result of the second roll. Now how much would you pay for this game?
      3- What if you can reroll up to two times? How much would you pay?

    Technical Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at SunGard (Austin, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Invited on campus for a behavioral interview. Spoke with a lead engineer about how I would handle scenario X, how did I deal with team members who were troublesome, most difficult challenges and how I overcame them, etc. Then I went to another room and spoke with the recruiter. If I wasn't an idiot, I would have fallen for this person's sales tactics. She worded all her responses carefully to hide the slaveryness of the position, technical consultant, basically a software engineer who goes onsite to other companies and does consulting/implementing a solution for that company.

    Fine, whatever. What ticked me off was that at the end of the behavioral section with her, she told me the next step after the current interview was to set me up for an onsite technical interview that would last a day at one of their offices. Pretty standard stuff.

    Days passed and I emailed her asking when the interview would be. She mentioned she has already contacted the office to see when they'd be ready to see me. Apparently that office is extremely busy, she says. She would let me know within a week. A week passes, then two. I waited the extra week to contact the recruiter again because I didn't care to work at this wannabe Accenture, but hey, a trip is a trip. She responds saying she still has not heard back and that she'll ask again when that office will be ready to fly me out and interview me.

    The next day, a different recruiter from the one I'd been corresponding with all this time emails me with the copy pasted nonsense "Pursuing other candidates who are a better fit for this role." Clearly they just didn't want to deal with interviewing me. All the low stars for this company you see on this site are real. I felt a vibe from the recruiter during the behavioral when I was asking her questions about work life that a SWE is pretty much treated like a worker bee. I would put money on it that turnover is high. Also, to get up the hierarchy to lead manager engineer or whatever the title is is nigh on 10 years. Like any millennial is going to be staying at any company for more than 2, let alone this joke of a company. I should have listened to the cons. They were pretty much all true. Stay away, this is not a company you would be proud to tell you friends and family you work at. You might as well tell them you work at Subway.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at SunGard (Salem, NH) in November 2012.

    Interview

    It took months of interviewing before I was hired, had at least 6 interviews, It was back and forth, I think they were just stalling until they could get all the internal red tape figured out. The company is so burden with red tape do anything that it takes them for ever to do anything,

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SunGard (Tokyo (Japan)).

    Interview

    Very cold, introductions abrupt and got the feeling I was imposing on the interviewers precious time.
    Seating low and uncomfortable, no drinks provided even though it was over 30C outside.
    Initial impression turned me off the whole process.
