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

Pros

There are no pros to working here...

Cons

Low salaries, no opportunity for advancement, poorly developed software solutions, management team that is not open to new ideas, micro-management from the top down.

Advice to Management

Open your eyes. When you speak of operating under the guise of best practices, you need to realize that employees that have been in the company for 30 years have no sense of best practices. Open up the door to new ideas and insights before you tank the company with your controlling silo's and your micro-management.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits - generous vacation policy. They seem to have finally heard the complaints of a dissatisfied workforce and are making changes for the better.

    Cons

    Low wages and no raises. No opportunities for upward movement. Both of these are driven by our continual loss of customers to competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Quit reorganizing; Focus on Customer Service and new products. Stop nickel and diming. How hard should it be for a developed to acquire a $25 piece of software that will enhance productivity.

    I have been working at SunGard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The everyday employees that you work with are great.

    Cons

    HR is for management and NOT the working employees.

    Advice to Management

    Watch how upper management advances their friends to the level of their own incompetency.
