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

    Pros

    Compensation is fair, vacation policy is good, overall benefits are good, relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Management is completely dis-organized. Very poor training for managers in a company this size. Work-life balance is poor.
    Lack of investment in products makes cleaning up the mess very difficult. IPO is coming and I fear things will be getting worse.

    Advice to Management

    None, they don't listen anyway.

    Pros

    The view of Jacksonville is beautiful!

    Cons

    Executive management only cares about the sales team.
    The other teams are constantly being told how much their efforts to withstand the system and process frustrations are appreciated.
    Large system improvement projects are consistently put on hold for incidents, defects and sales support.

    Advice to Management

    None. It is obvious what is deemed important.
