    I worked at SunGard (More than a year)

    Pros

    The structure is very flat, and it allowed me to get face-to-face interaction with not only managing directors, but also executives at clients.

    Cons

    The risk consulting group was very small and not well-integrated with the rest of the firm. Also, senior management of the firm, while approachable, was headquartered on a different continent.

    Advice to Management

    Have senior management in the US, integrate acquired groups, cross-leverage sales forces, and provide a structured training program for new hires.

    I worked at SunGard (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation was good, plenty of physical resources.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management, Inconsistent, illogical and arbitrary decision making patterns and ever changing policies suited for the short term convenience of the powers-that-be. Performance reviews of very poor quality. Cliquish and hyper-political work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Get some backbone, roll up your sleeves and engage with your committed employees.

    I worked at SunGard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, and 401k match (50% of your first 6%). Good people in the Burlington office, they bring in lunch once a week.

    Cons

    Lots of layers of management. They have at least 15 different people with a COO title in various different groups. As a PreSales Engineer your job is to help close new business and assist in up selling existing accounts. Once the deal is closed and the account is transitioned to Professional Services it's out of your hands, however due to an issue with the product that could have been fixed, but the COO of one of the smaller software groups chose not to fix the client took advantage of an out clause and the COO decided to claw back $5,000 in commission that had already been paid.
