Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Culture of accountability, opportunities to do important and interesting work, top performers rewarded. Diverse technology infrastructure leading to many chances to learn new platforms.

Cons

Decentralized management structure of the corporate office meant there was additional overhead in making decisions about company-wide policies and benefits.

Advice to Management

I feel that there could have been more emphasis (on an individual level) on how specific job roles could contribute to the overall strategic direction of the company.

    Pros

    Money is OK, in this economy. Free coffee and pop. LOL

    Cons

    Clueless managment, chaotic environment, too many Severity 1 issues because of incompetent development and engineering people. Trouble written all over the place. Too many brown nosers trying to get ahead, morons really, who think they are far more superior than you are only because they've been here for 2+ year. THis place is bad! it will bring your career to halt. I've seen and heard of too many people come and go in the short time i spend there. Another thing to remember is that they will give you such a pretty picture during interview so ASK questions, clarify and observe what you will be getting yourself into, constant stress and arogant people. If you are ok with that then by all means, its a job, nothing more.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the very few talented few and get rid of your typical brown noser types, especially ones who got nothing better to do than create useless reports for you and "run" idiotic meetings for you.
