Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Loved my colleagues, many exceptional engineers.

Cons

Lower management is petty and plays favorites while upper managements only concern is to make sure that the Blackstone group gets it's cut.
Soul crushing on-call
Good old boy mentality with director level management and above.
Aging architecture doesn't really align with it's wanting to be state of the art.

Advice to Management

Spend the money to bring in the right tools and technology or sell the business to someone who will.
