    Pros

    SunGard is a global company. They are known for their education and financial software. Several opportunities to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership who are knowledgeable in the application they manage. The company doesn't invest in new technology nor in their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to invest in all of their software. The application needs to be upgrade as new technology become available enhancing the existing application. Need to stay competitive.

    Pros

    Had own office, dress very casual (polo shirts, jeans), Thursday morning breakfast paid for by the company, a lot of excellent training. Pay and benefits were excellent as well.

    Cons

    The application was originally written in VFP with SQL Server back end. I was to help fix bugs and add minimal new functionaly as a .NET team was put together to convert the VFP app to .NET. The VFP application was extremely terribly written and dealing with it day in and day out was a real mess and extremely frustrating knowing we were only keeping it alive long enough for the conversion to .NET. The leadership struggled with this setup. Especially since new features were being added to the VFP applications. It was going to be a very long process and left after one year. I couldn't deal with attempt to fix a mess and at the same time adding features that would sometimes break other areas of the application. Biggest mess I've ever seen.

    Pros

    1. Get good functional knowledge, if you are in the right team.
    2. Job security
    3. Time flexibility

    Cons

    1. No cutting edge technology or latest development techniques in use.
    Have to dig into code written in 90s and also have to write code as if you are in 90s.
    They have just started using agile which seems to have just increased the chaos.
    2. Poor food quality
    3. No transportation facility (Pune)

    Conclusion: Not good if you are a technology geek. But sungard can help you get domain knowledge and client exposure if you are in Implementation team.

    Advice to Management

    Move on to accept new technologies and development practices.

    Pros

    Used to be great place, innovate and fun. That changed when focus went to cost cutting instead of growing the business.

    Cons

    Ran off all the talent. Outsourced everything to India. Now it's constant turnover. As soon as you train up someone they leave for another company.

    Advice to Management

    Really not much they can do. IPO may let them invest and hire some people. People could get more done if they didn't have so many security restraints.

    Pros

    The structure is very flat, and it allowed me to get face-to-face interaction with not only managing directors, but also executives at clients.

    Cons

    The risk consulting group was very small and not well-integrated with the rest of the firm. Also, senior management of the firm, while approachable, was headquartered on a different continent.

    Advice to Management

    Have senior management in the US, integrate acquired groups, cross-leverage sales forces, and provide a structured training program for new hires.
