    Pros

    Flexible, good benefits, nice location, personable co-workers.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity, significantly due to distributed nature of SunGard offices.
    Feeling of being a "human resource" rather than a person.
    The personal experience at SunGard depends mostly on your direct supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    It's a job, but it's not a career. I don't hate working there, but it would not take much for me to decide to leave.
    How would you honestly answer someone who asked, "Why should I work at SunGard? Why is it a better place to work than some place else?"


  2. "Soul-crushing management turns talent into cogs in the machine."

    Pros

    The company, superficially at least, is growing. A bevy of past challenges experienced and growing pains suffered during past acquisitions may serve to wake up management to begin managing people rather than maximizing short-term growth.

    Cons

    The company has no overarching strategy beyond aggressive, scorched-earth expansion. Because they do so many things, none of them receive the proper focus. Management from afar means that employees are treated as numbers. Overall, a soul-sucking environment due to talented employees never feeling respected or listened to by management.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back, remember that you are employing talented, creative individuals rather than money-generating automatons. The happiness of customers and employees is not a zero-sum game. The more you listen to your employees, the more motivated they will be, thereby increasing the quality of the product and resulting in happy customers. That is how to improve the bottom line while still having a soul.
