    Pros

    The company offers a lot of flexibility in terms of work schedule. They offer many goodies such as soft drinks, food package, etc.

    Cons

    Filled with politics. Quite hierarchical for a multinational company. Your relations with people matter more than your work delivery

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If someone leaves a company, it does not mean that you will not come across them again.

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

    Pros

    USed to have work life balance totaly depends on your product. We were then forced to work 10 to 12 hours 7 days a week yes i am right even saturday and sunday
    Nothing else if you are good in showing off then you might get good bonus

    Cons

    Bad work environment , no worklife balance in my product at least
    Old timers dont work and are appraised as well so if you are one of them then you will never leave Sungard and tswy there are lot of good things written about the company here.
    If you are in Pune and being a non Marathi then god save you.Even the internal working language is marathi and you are suppose to be total alien if you are not one.
    Firing is happening at rapid place both higher ed and public sector are closed and more than 150 people are fired . its facing difficult time and even some of the existing and suppose to be loyal clients are moving away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They wont change , Advice to all the new people joining in the company better dont.
