I have been working at SunGard full-time for 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 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

    I worked at SunGard full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - The people I worked with on a daily basis were great.
    - Process and Procedures were well documented and clear. Human Resources "stuff" was always easy to take care of.
    - Benefits and PTO are very good.

    Cons

    - Management (middle and senior level) cannot see past themselves. I am not sure if this "closed minded" philosophy is dictated from the Executive Team, but it exist across multiple segments.
    -Failure to reward employees with a pay raise. In my 5 years, never received more then a cost of living raise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider the philosophy for performance reviews. The current reviews were a joke and provide zero road map for development.
