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

    Pros

    It is interesting work and some of the co-workers were wonderful people.

    Cons

    They will fire soon-to-be parents as adoption or birth nears and make up stories about why they were fired. They will not adhere to FMLA requests. They also do not adhere to reasonable accommodation plans and bully vulnerable employees into signing false appraisals and evaluations.

    They do not allow the employee to add their own statements to write-ups that might refute what the manager/supervisor is reporting and refuse to check computer logs to verify computer use.

    When records are requested after leaving, they conveniently leave out any reference to your disabilities or the fact that you had a reasonable accommodation plan. They falsify records and performance appraisals.

    There is also a major issue with discrimination against males at their Chico, CA office. Apparently we aren't allowed to take time off to care for our families, that's what wives are for.

    Advice to Management

    Hire supervisors with higher quality morals and ethics. Preferably someone with managerial experience who is actually willing to take the time to train employees. Educate your HR staff about ADA and FMLA.

    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.

    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.
