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.
