Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Plenty of different technology to learn. Schedule gives plenty of days off.

Cons

No leadership qualities in management. No accountability. Projects are rarely fully thought through. A lot of micromanagement, does not promote a culture of creative thinking unless in a clique.

Very few written processes or impossible to find if they have been written. Feedback on how the process is working is not asked from the people that are required to follow it.

 Lower Management promotes Favoritism.

Advice to Management

Promote cross-pollination of information between different departments. Change the mindset of pushing back tickets to the original assigning group to moving the ticket forward. It's all of our jobs to help the customer.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at SunGard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My initial salary was higher than I expected and I enjoyed most of the people that I worked with every day

    Cons

    no training, general lack of concern and accountability, high-level execs totally out of touch with the employees, so big that the general feel of "it's not my problem" is quite rampant

    Advice to Management

    the only reason that many employees still work at SG is because they need a paycheck. that is a terrible place for a company to be.

    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.
