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

Pros

Some of the folks that work at Sungard are enjoyable to work with. The hours when employed were nice and convenient.

Cons

The Management is absolutely heartless. When Sungard acquired Comdisco, they of course promised the world. They decided to fire people the week before christmas. Made a comment to my manager which he didn't like. F' him. I hate this place.

Advice to Management

    I have been working at SunGard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    wages can be competitive and there's a good chance you'll run into some excellent people all throughout the organization that are great at their job and excellent to work with. They do attract some good talent.

    Cons

    Annual reorgs for no apparent reason. unless you're upper management or sales you won't be raking in big bonuses and perks but they are there. Massive drive to move everything possible to Florida, but again unless you're high enough up relocation help isn't available. Layoffs/downsizing/rightsizing seem to be happening more and more frequently with a big push to get and stay very lean. Work Life balance has become non-existant for many, depending on your role/department. Benefits get worse and worse each year.

    Advice to Management

    the company is TOO lean, with many co-workers working 6 days a week just to keep up, with no compensation for doing so. Forcing older workers out in favor of hiring someone with no experience for less in FL is seriously draining the knowledge base of Sungard's products and it is being reflected in the increasingly unhappy customer base.

    Pros

    Senior management is bringing in the right people, and weeding out non-productive ones. Overall they are doing the right things, and are listening to those in the trenches. Because of rapid growth, there are opportunities everywhere in this company.

    Cons

    Rapid growth has left some support elements behind, and customers are expressing some concern.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you have been doing, and consider outside evaluation of our various departments to determine if we have the right organizational structure. The emphasis on beefing up support teams is key to continued growth.
