    I worked at SunGard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with! Learned a lot from team members and others throughout the organization. The ability to work remotely full-time allowed employees to be more productive without the stress of a commute.

    Cons

    The acquisition could have been handled a little smoother in terms of communicating a clear path for lower tier non management employees. Clear role transitions and training not always consistent.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better internal cross training programs for employees.

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

    Pros

    New leadership is capable of identifying and funding change. The majority of the people are truly passionate and committed to what they do. These people want to make a difference in K-12 education.

    Cons

    Underfunded in both compensation and infrastructure. The new leadership is working hard to advance the maturity and stability of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Stay committed to getting the funding needed to right the ship. You have done this in the past so just do it again because you know how crucial it is to the overall operation.
