"Was great to work for in the Comdisco days"

Pros

Flexible management- always encouraging employees to learn more and to get involved. Most of the co-workers are supportive. Was not micro-managed.

Cons

Some of co-workers took advantage of the 'non-micromanaged' mentality of managers. Some managers were not aware of the workers that did not contribute. If took on responsiblity you would be automatically held accountable for task from that time on- regardless if it was not your job.

Advice to Management

Be more open-minded and support the people actually doing the job.

    I worked at Sungard Availability Services as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great team. Team was very intelligent and highly technical. Senior engineers are great mentors to junior engineers. It was a great place to work and learn. If you came in as a junior, you would gain experience at an exponential rate and leave almost a senior. Work from home policy was also very beneficial.

    Cons

    Company is starting to outsource a lot of work to India. Many US engineers are being replaced, and the trend is only continuing in that direction. Heard of recent layoffs as well.

    Advice to Management

    Outsourcing to India is not the solution!

    Pros

    A lot of really great people, past and present.

    Cons

    Company is outsourcing a lot. No job security.

    Advice to Management

    Bring customer service back and the clients might stay. Keep hiring overseas and they will continue to leave, even the bigger customers which seem to be the only customers you really care about.
