    I worked at SunGard (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work. There's always so much going on that you have the opportunity to get involved in a lot allowing for the ability to learn. Allows for great flexibility and working from home. Very fast paced. Because the company is so big there's opportunity to move within.

    Cons

    Because there is so much flexibility with your schedule and working from home, you are always connected to the office, even on vacations. You need to have the self discipline to give yourself a break from time to time. The pay is on the lower side. Communication isn't always the greatest.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be better with transparency.

    Pros

    Fast growing company with lots of room for growth.
