Pros

Competitive initial salary for a college graduate. Company demonstrates great patience in guiding young consultants to the consulting life style.

Cons

Not a recognized name and assignments seems more like body shop staff augmentation than consulting work.

Salary increases are bet. 3-4 % a year. Promotion salary increases are bet 7-15%. There are few opportunities growth and development.

Top heavy with little regard for development of consultants. Training is mostly on the job. Paid training can occur if one pulls teeth and calls a favor from ones' Godfather.

After 2-3 years a senior consultant should start to move on. At 4-5 one must be gone in order to obtain the desired salary and career growth opportunities.

Advice to Management

Have a real career training and growth program. Higher better senior managers and principals that can manage and sell to a wider client base for higher fees. Principals and partners should come with backgrounds with proven sales capabilities. Restructure the company to be one consulting company instead of competing regional offices. Coordinate better with SunGard sister companies for better offerings to potential clients.

    Pros

    The pay at SCS is great when this is your first job out of school.

    Cons

    You must play into the company politics to get ahead and be promoted. Promotions are a popularity contest and your guide must represent you well to move up in the company.

    Pros

    They do a lot of projects for SUnGard corporate which ensures job security, good work-life balance

    Cons

    Management is satisfied with the revenue from internal projects that they are not showing sctive interest in pursuing outside clients. Terrible quarterly bonus program.

    Advice to Management

    Start showing interest in getting outside projects, Revamp bonus payment structure, explore areas of growth for the company, integrate different offices and offshore to work as a single company and not be worried pnly about the revenue for the local office.
