Confused Place. Good, Bad and Ugly as well.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at SunGard full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood money. Decent work life Balance. If you get into a good senior group and recognized, you will do well.

ConsChanging and not so employee centric policies. A lot of Politics. If you get money you will not get opportunities and vice a versa. Populist attitude of management.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize your people and be fair. You have some of the fools surviving there when best of your employees are out.
