I have been working at SunGard full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The benefit package is competitive and they have a very good 401K. Co workers are friendly and there is always plenty of work to be done.

Cons

Lack of flexibility
No communication
Constant reorganization
The environment feels more like that of a kindergarten than an office, employees treated like children, scolded for various actions, like that of a child
Workload distribution is uneven, many have nothing to do while a few select employees have more to do than they can complete in an eight hour day
Overtime is encouraged and admired, hours worked are broadcasted by many as an accomplishment, it almost feels like a competition on who can work the most

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat those that work hard with respect and remove those that do not
Communicate better with employees
Realize that some who log in long hours are milking the system and stretching out their responsibilities. This is partially in response to low to no raise etc.
Provide a career path
Stop trying to pacify employees with hollow remarks on how management is taking steps to improve morale, we are smarter than that and it sounds ridiculous. We know change will never happen, its the Sungard way.
Odd behaviors are overlooked and almost encouraged.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook

    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?

    Doesn't Recommend
