    I worked at SunGard

    Pros

    There are still some good projects to work on.

    Cons

    Management really doesn't care about employees. Pay is becoming lower and lower day by day. This company used to be among the best paying ones, now sadly, even TCS can pay better than them.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are better compare other Services company like Infy, Wipro, TCS etc.

    To an extent flexible work timings but that too depends on your total tenure with company and whom you are reporting to. You can get very good deal if you bargain.

    Here your salary review is done twice a year and at times you may get mid year increment. Performance payout is good , and almost 80 % of people at least manage to get minimum of 110 % of base case mentioned in the letter and almost 80% of people get 10% average hike a year. At times they pay even up to 250 % of what is mentioned in the letter.

    If you are put in right project they work life balance would be excellent.You can spend time on self learning, on your family and meet to targets easily.

    Cons

    At times you get tired with doing same monotonous work. You exposure to latest technology will be very less.

    There are two many managers/lead per developers and majority of them are redundant non techie guys who do not add any value and simply do people management and at times they do not even do that.

    Very less onsite opportunities, specially for longer term.

    If your product is terminated / sunset then it difficult to find a place for you on another project/product. Job security is less but they give good retrenchment money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very very average static management. They are slowly running company like a service base company instead of product base company which may earn some revenue but good things of being product company are gone.

    Company may come up with IPO by 2015 and to increase the face value, they are selling of lots of less performing assets.
