Fantastic! From a 2-week programmer job to a 24-year career ending as General Manager!!!!

Senior Vice President/General Manager (Former Employee)
Calabasas, CA (US)

I worked at SunGard

ProsHi-tech; corporate discipline; opportunities for growth; rewards for success; responsibility & accountability enforced.

ConsM&A's distracting and disturbing to the core.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the company public again and let other share in its success; private control is good for management but poor for everyone else, especially with only Board oversight.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
