    I worked at SunGard full-time

    Pros

    Great learning platform to start career.
    Interesting products with a wide range of financial products
    Good hours
    A lot of opportunities to transfer within the company to different products.

    Cons

    At times the job can be confusing since there are a lot of different products. It is not necessarily clear who owns which product and who the appropriate manager is.

    Advice to Management

    More sales learning is required. I would advice management to give a clearer outlook on what the future holds for the company and what opportunities could arise for the salesforce.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at SunGard (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have a well-defined corporate structure. Everyone in my respective office was friendly and willing to give advice or help.

    Cons

    I was given little time to ask questions i.e. it was like I was not worth their time if I wanted to learn about the different positions there

    Advice to Management

    Provide a list of clerical activities that need accomplishing and list them in order of importance. make a list of people who could use the extra help and why. e.g. end of quarter, large project, personal reasons, etc.

    I worked at SunGard (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work. There's always so much going on that you have the opportunity to get involved in a lot allowing for the ability to learn. Allows for great flexibility and working from home. Very fast paced. Because the company is so big there's opportunity to move within.

    Cons

    Because there is so much flexibility with your schedule and working from home, you are always connected to the office, even on vacations. You need to have the self discipline to give yourself a break from time to time. The pay is on the lower side. Communication isn't always the greatest.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be better with transparency.
