Negative Outlook

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

Pros

The people were talented and skilled in their positions and eager to share their expertise and bringing a new employee up to speed. The technology was mostly up to date and properly managed.

Cons

Upper management was unsure of what direction the company was headed, too many divisions (the result of mergers and acquisitions) made movement in the company difficult.

Advice to Management

Reorganize the company based on industry sectors, merge and sell-off the unprofitable divisions and concentrate the remaining resources on the profitable areas.

    I have been working at SunGard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits and great people to work with. Opportunities to learn new things

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Management will burn you out regardless of telling them that you need a break.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your employees and boosting employee morale. If your employees work hare give them the compensation and bonues to go along with it. Don't burn out the only good employees you do have. Learn operations and change management. It would be beneficail to ask your staff what are their concerns and work from there.

    I have been working at SunGard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Can get good exposure to major financial companies - banks, asset managers, insurers - which can help get another job.

    Cons

    The constant focus on cost control makes it hard to do a good job and increases employee turnover. Sales plans always changing, probably because of manager turnover

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the strategy - go public, sell businesses - and set a clear plan for employees to follow.
