Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Knowledgeable people, global presence, name recognition

Cons

On-going cost and benefits reduction program (going on for 5 years), lack of investment into product development, no collaboration between product groups, impossible to fulfill quotas, new commission plan has lower payouts, high turn-over, just announced up-coming head count reduction because they have not met thier financial projections, management is only focused on thier budget and spreadsheets,

Advice to Management

Invest in your products and people. You neglect both

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

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Opportunity for promotion/recognition if you put in the work. Vacation days above average for the US. Could get more sick days.

    Cons

    However, in terms of actual positions to go up the chain, it is limited unless you count on employee turnover. It is more and more acting like a "big company". Bureaucracy is growing.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to basics. Streamline the bureaucracy.
