Data Center Technician (Former Employee), Wood Dale, ILMarch 24, 2015
Boring place to work for and not very good opportunities to advance your career. Co workers were fine as well as director supervisors. The hardest part of the job was doing menial work that required no technical skills. Not much to enjoy about working here because I didn't care for the 12 hour work days.

Only as a last resort
Former employee (Former Employee), 401 Broad StDecember 22, 2013
Pros: decent starting salary and benefits
Cons: layoffs, no raises, no training, no direction, etc etc etc
IT professionals - only take a job at Sungard if you are desperate for a paycheck. This is a horrible place to work that constantly lays people off. Depressing work areas, no training, no goals, no consistent direction, no raises, good luck getting so much as a pen. Management is clueless and lacks integrity, and is deceiving the customer base. They are selling MRP with no idea how to deliver it and no staff to support it. Processes change daily. Internal systems are ancient and there is no budget to fix them. DR is a dying field due to virtualization, cloud technologies and the abundance of raised floor space most companies have. Avoid this dying dinosaur of a company at all costs. If you need a job, work here for the check and look for something else.
