    Former Employee - Sales Manager in Manchester, England (UK)

    I worked at SunGard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great facilities and mostly very astute people. Good vision and energy to achieve. Truly market leading as a non manufacturer specific supplier. Multiple value streams and routes to market.
    UK wide coverage and work placement options.

    Cons

    US employment legislation is very different to the EU. Unfortunately, the senior US management do not understand the implications.
    Putting revenue before customer requirements is a dangerous practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more genuine autonomy to non US locations.

    I worked at SunGard full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - The people I worked with on a daily basis were great.
    - Process and Procedures were well documented and clear. Human Resources "stuff" was always easy to take care of.
    - Benefits and PTO are very good.

    Cons

    - Management (middle and senior level) cannot see past themselves. I am not sure if this "closed minded" philosophy is dictated from the Executive Team, but it exist across multiple segments.
    -Failure to reward employees with a pay raise. In my 5 years, never received more then a cost of living raise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider the philosophy for performance reviews. The current reviews were a joke and provide zero road map for development.
