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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Dynamic environment that is open to new ideas of how to do business. A wealth of solutions and services that have been acquired over the years coupled with a desire to innovate and develop means a long runway of success is in front of this company. I feel like I'm a part of something big about to happen.

    Cons

    Dismantling old silos and old ways of thinking is akin to turning a big ship around... slow course corrections have to be made incrementally.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to over communicate the why of changes and the ultimate destination, as we hit milestones along the strategic path.
