    I worked at SunGard full-time

    Pros

    SunGard offered many positions to its employees and was a reliable place to work for a decent salary and benefits, and the opportunity to interact with many professional colleagues

    Cons

    There were many subdivisions within the company that were quite fragmented and this ended up causing quite an identity crisis as such a large company. Very corporate feel with a lack of sharing a common vision and sense of value for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate approaches to consolidate or reclassify different business entities to have more of a unified organization. Focus on building a stronger culture where employees feel more engaged and valued.

    I worked at SunGard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at SunGard full-time for 3 years.

    Company overall is very good with good policies but what matters is which BU and product you will join.

    "People leave managers and not companies", I think this is the most suitable line here.

    SunGard is a good with employee friendly policies. But what will you do with the company policies if your work is not good, if your leads and managers are not good.

    Cons

    Business Units like Corporate Liquidity and Energy are pathetic and avoid going there completely.

    Particulary in Corporate Liquidity, dont go in TRAX product. People are not good, they are sitting there for years and do as they want in projects (Because of them I left SunGard(FIS)).

    Learning wise, its a big no. You only do configuration stuff, actual development is happening in Belgium.

    People in Belgium treats you as a labourer and only give configuration stuff, they consider people in India least talented to write good code.

    No onsite opportunities.

    You will get good hike during joining but after joining dont expect much raise.

    Advice to Management

    Change the management and leads. Because of them, people are leaving. Hire good people managers from outside and bring fresh leads who can think out of the box.
    Also bring some coding work also apart from configuration stuff.
    Advice BU people in Europe to treat Indian employees with respect.

    Very nice international company. Very nice people and colleges. Very nice office. Technology depends on what project you are working, but it is possible to change projects during the time. I was enjoying working for this company.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep good work

    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.
