I have been working at SunGard full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Through the downturn in the economy had my best years in earnings. Ability to work in a flexible wfh and office environment. Opportunity to work with people with significantly different experiences to help me grow my skills. Ability to contribute across business lines like a small company while still working for a big company

Cons

takes a long time to remove bad managers, Finance/accounting has too much say/internal systems are challenging to work with and need to be improved to facilitate sales

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value customer and contact relationships more then geographic lines, show your top performers in revenue you value them as much as the performers who out perform quota by the percentage over quota, improve marketing efforts to return our brand value

    I have been working at SunGard full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nice benefits. If you can work with little direction and feedback it is an ok job. Great point solutions.

    Cons

    Lack of clear direction, defined roles and common goals. Lack of communication between the C-level and the workers. The company tends to position the lower paid workers to take ownership to figure it out, with out being full educated on the company business plan. people are not paid based by value or workloads. Unrealistic workloads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why do we need so much management if management can not give clear direction or make business changes?

    I have been working at SunGard full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Great to get experience.
    - People you work with are nice and smart.
    - Facilities are more than OK.

    Cons

    - Lack of strategy : today is "do what we were doing yesterday" even if everybody acknowledged that it is no longer working.
    - Package is below average/median.
    - No carrier management. You see the HR department twice, first and last day, and your manager has no say on his/her budget nor carrier development paths.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top managers: stop focusing on the IPO and check the mid-management, right now they are left to their own device with very little success.
