    Pros

    Sungard AS allows you to work with bleeding edge technology between our customers, partners & vendors. Career path and choices have gotten better but need some work.

    Cons

    Sungard AS is transforming over the past few years. It drives what the users utilize for their daily tools instead of having the users pick and work with IT for the Best tools to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the users to select the correct tools instead of cramming work into something that does not work.

    I have been working at Sungard Availability Services (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, health insurance, 401k. Great team atmosphere, at least in my department. Opportunity to work on a global network and pretty much every network technology under the sun.

    Cons

    Lack of process management and training. Could use more staffing due to the high work load. No HR free Fridays.

    Advice to Management

    I have 8 different bosses right now. Eight, Bob. So that means that when I make a mistake, I have eight different people coming by to tell me about it. That's my only real motivation is not to be hassled; that, and the fear of losing my job. But you know, Bob, that will only make someone work just hard enough not to get fired. ”
