I have been working at Sungard Availability Services full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- I have worked for and with some great people in this organization. Too bad they never seem to get recognized.
- I have been exposed to many technologies which will advance my career once I leave this pit.
- Benefits used to be decent.
- I have remained employed for several years.

Cons

- Management lacks vision, generally lacks respect for the 'worker', and makes decisions arbitrarily in an ad-hoc fashion.
- Necessary metrics are not used to ensure quality delivery of products and services which could reduce our customer attrition rate.
- Leadership seems out of touch with the industry; plans change from day-to-day. What the hell is going on? Don't ask them, they won't tell you.

Advice to Management

- The board should consider a new CEO.
- Executive leadership should be promoted from within the ranks of the organization: somebody who has seen it all with SunGard and knows what is best.
- Middle management should be provided with leadership training.
- Pay the **** attention.
- Stop micro-managing.

    Pros

    Good Work/Life Balance. Employees, in general, have passion for providing value, servie and solutions to customers.

    Cons

    Hopefully getting better. Last round of layoffs was the roughest yet. We cannot continue to cut to profitability.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe the Board should consider whether we have the right Executive leadership. We, in the front lines, are not convinced.
