I have been working at SunGard full-time (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 Management

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

    Big company, lots of diversification, global span.

    Lack of product investment, profits come before innovation. Downward spiral is in motion, lots of change ie, management, consolidation, divestiture

    Advice to Management

    Take a breather on financial performance and invest in your products.

    I have been working at SunGard full-time (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 Management

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