I have been working at SunGard full-time (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 (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?

    Former Employee - Consultant in Birmingham, AL (US)
    Former Employee - Consultant in Birmingham, AL (US)

    I worked at SunGard full-time (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.
