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

    Pros

    It is one of the few HP NonStop (Tandem) companies left in the North East so if you want to play on the NonStop's this is a place you can do that.

    Cons

    No work life balance, horrible moral, They don't want creativity they simply buy companies to add products to there line. Management does not know how to empower there employees, only tell them what to do and with hold information. It's a "there way" or "the high way" kind of place, If they don't like you they will set you up then go for the kill.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at how other companies operate and start adopting a more modern approach to running a software company.

    Pros

    Keep Busy - lots of work - they are a good company to work for and usually treat employes with respect

    Cons

    Demanding and relentless - high stress with multiple projects and lots of changes - no real guidelines and a long ramp up period to become proficient

    Advice to Management

    Don't have any advice, some managers are good - some not so much - depends on which division you are in and who you work with

    I worked at SunGard (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Has a diverse set of software systems using varying technologies.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with projects, the systems developed and sold, and staff. Some of the prior Management (3 - 5 years ago) had extensive knowledge of the systems, client base and staff (which was even better 10 - 15 years ago when even the TOP management had that history)

    Advice to Management

    Quit letting go of highly experienced employees!! It's been ridiculous how many star employees have been laid off or fired, by management that nit-picks on minor 'issues' with NO regard of the skill set and experience of an employee (especially in the Professional Services area). Another indication of their ineptitude is the high number of quality employees who have QUIT because of the poor management that's been in place for the past couple of years.

    This used to be a GREAT company to work for, especially for those of us who began working there 20+ years ago (which WERE a very high number of employees)
