    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirit pervades most of the business units
    Pragmatic management style, less politics than other companies of comparable size
    Accessible senior management

    Cons

    Underinvestment in products has lead to broadly uncompetitive, aging product set
    Too many years of acquisitions have led to an unholy mess that needs to be sorted out. This process is ongoing and made SunGard a much less interesting and fun place to work
    Little support from HR for those who want to manage their career within the group. HR department function as administrators rather than business partners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Stop messing around and get the pain of restructuring the company over with quickly - it will only get worse.
    2) Consolidate around a coherent, winning strategy that you can use to rally your employees and articulate to your customers.
    3) Don't have unrealistic ideas about what the company is worth

    Culture is Gone, Time to Abandon Ship

    Pros

    If you are lucky to have descent leadership at the top of your segment, there may be hope albeit with a short window until the ownership change happens - and it is happening. Long term career, nope. Runway - 12-24 months. It's been 10 years since the LBO and the PE owners will want the "event" to happen so they can cash in on this line item in the portfolio that has been a huge under performer and invest in other things.

    Cons

    The once entrepreneurial spirit and leadership is completely gone and left are the very few who decide on a day by day basis to jump ship. The Segments do not work together, the administrative work as well as the procedures are disparate and gotten to the point of silly. Couple that with a lack of focus on the delivery, Project Management and Investment and the ship is sinking. Clients are leaving and the reputation that was once stellar has gone to poor and "steer clear."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cash in and get this over with, get the roadshows going so the pain ends for all.

    I have been working at SunGard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ability to travel and meet other people

    Cons

    Disorganized upper management. Low employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with one another across teams. Listen to the employees.
    Stop taking away benefits and then try to make it seem like it is in the best interest of the employees. There have been minimal raises in the last 6 years. Combine that with more out of pocket expenses for less benefits and employees are making less than they did years before.

    Pros

    The view of Jacksonville is beautiful!

    Cons

    Executive management only cares about the sales team.
    The other teams are constantly being told how much their efforts to withstand the system and process frustrations are appreciated.
    Large system improvement projects are consistently put on hold for incidents, defects and sales support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. It is obvious what is deemed important.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, not very documentation oreinted, good health insurance, descent benefits.

    Cons

    Company is still growing, so not so many clients. Energy division is altogether different than Consulting. Consulting comprises of small set of team where as Energy divsion is just like a big company. Make sure you know where you are joining and make appropriate decision.
