Could stand improvement

Product Architect (Current Employee)
Pune

I have been working at SunGard full-time for more than 3 years

ProsImmediate team is smart and a pleasure to work with

ConsLack of focus. Runs as a bureaucracy e.g. IT Dept has shut down R & D initiatives because the platforms needed were not already on approved list , and so were many of the needed components in the tool chain.

Awesome Company With Bright Future

Product Developer (Current Employee)

I have been working at SunGard full-time for more than a year

ProsWell to sum it up its really one of the good companies out there
*Package and Bonus are Decent.Bonuses can go up to 300 percent depending on your contribution and efforts
*Flexible timings and no swipe in/out concept
*One of the few companies which really proves the concept of work/life balance
*Free snacks and other freebies
*Good work at least in my team

Cons*Internal growth is steep. You might stay a developer as long as you work here.
*No remote chance of a onsite.
*Pune has some really good infrastructure and Work than Bangalore,and that's bad cause the company is in the growth phase

Advice to Senior ManagementRetaining the critical resource should be a priority have seen lots of good resource leaving the company.

My opinion

Solution Specialist (Current Employee)
Bangalore

I have been working at SunGard

ProsSalary is the only thing that keeps going for employees.

ConsOpaque management. No Career advancement. Nepotism and favouritism. Work from home option is not given. No travel opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementOpaque management - Management has to be transperant.
No Career advancement - Promotions and jobs are still stuck in the 20th century processes. Nepotism and favouritism - This is very much prevalant and needs to be controlled.
Work from home option is not given which is very surprising for an IT company in the 21st century.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
