    Pros

    SunGard, Recovery Services, is an exciting environment that allows technicians full freedom to learn and do things that most folks only dream about. Due to our hands on approach we learn more in 6 months across more enterprise equipment than most people do in production for years. The excitement of recovering clients during a disaster is like no other workplace - you know you're doing good by helping out companies and ultimately, people.

    Cons

    Management talks about caring and that people are valuable. Unfortunately that's only talk, it always, always, comes down to money for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pretending that your employees are important. Either do it or be truthful about it. You'll get more respect as a result.
