Very Poor Management, Chaotic environment, Will spoil your career here
Senior Engineer (Current Employee) – Pune – July 4, 2013
No proper planning, Chaotic environment, Office politics to the highest level I have ever seen. Does not promote learning and development. Managers are insecure of subordinates qualifications. Do NOT join this organization if you want a happy career.
politics leads to good gossips and anticipation of future actions
Decent work-life balance. Able to work remotely when needed. If you apply yourself, there are a lot of opportunities for advancement.
Senior Director, Learning and Development (Current Employee) – Wayne, PA – April 8, 2016
We are still going through the integration process with FIS but the transition has gone fairly well as compared to other acquisitions. The FIS culture seems similar to SunGard. Leadership team seems good and communications about changes have been transparent and informative.
System Administrator II (Former Employee) – Lake Mary, FL – March 29, 2016
If you need a job that's flexible around your home life, SunGard is the place to be. They offer great benefits compared to most although now that they're being bought out by FIS things might change. I've never worked somewhere that you can take 4 hours off whenever you need it. Sometimes this gets abused but they really don't care as long as you're happy.
Technical Support / Installation Engineer II (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – January 28, 2016
SunGard was an interesting place to work that gave me many opportunities to grow and expand my talents. I handled installations of SunGard's Education software products. I did the entire process less the initial sale and collection of payments.
Great small company to start my career in computers
Programmer Analyst (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – January 27, 2016
I started at this job and moved my way as far up in the small company that there was room to grow. I felt I had learned and gotten promoted as far as I could so I decided to look for new opportunities. I small company is great because you become very close with the people you work with but mobility has limitations.
Worked with nice people, learned a lot and travelled
Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – December 10, 2015
Morale is very low. Management doesn't care or listen to any work issues. No set work instructions. You're always trying to hit a moving target. Management is horrible and actually rude to employees. I actually was witness to a screaming match between 2 managers that was heard all the way from the conference room to the staff floor. HR is useless if you have an issue. Backs management and does nothing to help. No chance for advancement. Most of the office personnel is from India.It's just a miserable place to work. Company reputation is so bad they've changed the name to FIS. Layoffs are almost quarterly.
Pay is ok, benefits are ok.
Miserable environment, management is horrible and uncooperative. Politics are rampant.
Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – December 1, 2015
First real job and it was fun. They sent me around the world and gave me a lot of training on real world problems. The organization gave me the first taste of managing groups and the pitfalls that come with the responsibility.
Sales and Use Tax Manager (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 21, 2015
Each department at SunGard has a different atmosphere. My department is very laid back and a fun department to work in. Micro managing does not exist as we know are duties and get it done whether in or outside the office. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with a group of intelligent, dependable and hard working colleagues. We learn from one another.
