    "20+ years going from $50 million to $5 billion in revenue translated to fun, challenges, rewards & some disappointments."

    Pros

    For many, SunGard was a start up that grew up and matured, so being a part of that was just incredibly rewarding and gave many an opportunity to flourish in an controlled entrepreneurial environment.

    Cons

    At a macro level, the pros also became challenges and as the Company matured the entrenched management struggled to keep up and adapt. At a micro level, the single largest deficiency is in the area of formal employee training/career development..

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the silos and introduce substantive training/career development, especially management training. The best developer, sales person, customer service rep or accountant does not necessarily make the best manager.
