Lack of any senior leadership and clear direction

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Poor Management leads to Unhappy Employees

Consultant (Former Employee)
Birmingham, AL (US)

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… 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,… Advice to Senior Management: Reconsider the philosophy for performance reviews. The current reviews were… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
