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

Pros

- The people I worked with on a daily basis were great.
- Process and Procedures were well documented and clear. Human Resources "stuff" was always easy to take care of.
- Benefits and PTO are very good.

Cons

- Management (middle and senior level) cannot see past themselves. I am not sure if this "closed minded" philosophy is dictated from the Executive Team, but it exist across multiple segments.
-Failure to reward employees with a pay raise. In my 5 years, never received more then a cost of living raise

Advice to Management

Reconsider the philosophy for performance reviews. The current reviews were a joke and provide zero road map for development.

    I worked at SunGard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large organization with products / clients that touch all parts of the financial industry. If you are curious, you can speak to people and learn a great deal. Employees are generally nice and share info. Good benefits. Work / life balance is achieveable.

    Cons

    Little room for upward mobility. You may get more responsibility, but not an increase in salary or title. The organization is poorly run and each product line acts like its own fiefdom. There is little collaboration among the groups. There are lots of politics behind the scenes.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the walls between groups. Encourage / force working together. Maybe even restructure the whole org. Promote smart people and get rid of mediocre people.
