I have been working at SunGard full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Nice benefits. If you can work with little direction and feedback it is an ok job. Great point solutions.

Cons

Lack of clear direction, defined roles and common goals. Lack of communication between the C-level and the workers. The company tends to position the lower paid workers to take ownership to figure it out, with out being full educated on the company business plan. people are not paid based by value or workloads. Unrealistic workloads.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Why do we need so much management if management can not give clear direction or make business changes?

    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.

    I worked at SunGard full-time

    Pros

    Some large clients. Not many positives at SunGard.

    Cons

    Terrible sales compensation plan, which includes multiple low caps on commissions, low commissions, and some very low commissions.

    Management is all politics, no vision or leadership.

    SunGard is really a cobbled together group of companies, that is not well integrated.

    A strong "yes man" culture stiffles creativity and productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to be replaced, company restructured.
