Great people who have worked there many years and know their industry
Development Manager (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – June 21, 2017
Many products have legacy technology that is difficult to migrate to current standards. Generally, product investments are driven by the customers. Eliminated their research and development group and many under performing products which left significant gaps in solutions and minimal opportunity to become the market leading software vendor.
Work-life balance varied depending on the sales commitments. Otherwise, the organizational culture was very good since people worked closely for many years.
Many reorganizations over the years resulting in senior leadership being out of touch and decisions being made without much input.
If making revenue targets, had a lot of autonimy in the individual business units
Downsized many times, only invested in the products making the most revenue, many small dispersed offices with few amenities
Another excellent company destroyed by Edward Lewis from Pretty Woman
Senior Developer (Current Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – June 20, 2017
Direct management and coworkers are the best you will ever find. We work together smoothly as a team and there is a desire to share knowledge and lessons learned. Sadly we are all puppets to the greedy, no good, thieves that now own us. For senior leadership the word Customers has become a dirty "C" word, never to be mentioned or considered. At times I think our leaders are secretly working for our competitor.
I spent 5 very productive and enjoyable years, until our company has been bought it. Then the last two years were the twilight of what has been brilliant before. The new owners made miserable the life the old clients in order to kick them out and be able to close the shack with no remorse.
Good client work experience but under tight time constraints
BusinessSystems Analyst (Contract) (Former Employee) – Malvern, PA – May 25, 2017
Worked at Sungard as a contractor for 3 years. Had to solve complex client reporting analysis and development issues, write design documents, and complete assignments sometimes with tight deadlines. I worked from home but 100% working from home wasn't as good for me, may work for some people. Client work was interesting but sometimes had to work under pressure. Note: Sungard acquired by FIS in 2015.
Service Bureau / Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – May 1, 2017
Typical day is busy yet fun. Employees learn to work in a diverse environment and how to deal with people from different backgrounds. Workplace culture is friendly, the hardest part of the job is keeping up with the workload on busy days and the most enjoyable part of the job is working in a friendly environment and under good management.
Hired for one position, then forced into a different position
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Hinsdale, IL – April 30, 2017
I was hired under the premise that I would be a Business Consultant. I was to evaluate how clients used the [Employer] product and then help the client and [Employer] work together to mutually improve efficient use and development of the software.
I was forced unwillingly into an operational support role that neither suited my interests or best suited my skills
Project Manager - SunGard Professional Services (Former Employee) – Lake Mary, FL – April 10, 2017
Laid off due to company buyout and restructure. Quality co workers and management until buy out. great workplace culture. Worked with multiple clients, managed projects as much as 45 projects simultaneously.
QA Manager (Former Employee) – Chico, CA – March 23, 2017
if you like to be told what to do 10-15 times a day and have to get water from the restroom to drink then this place is for you. turnover is about 1-2 years. Everyone there is either wanting to leave or change the way the company operates. went through 4 CEO's in a 8 year period and still fail to provide 70% customer satisfaction.
most people are kind
the worst people tend to harass you enough to make you forget about the nice people
