Featured Review

Current Employee - Vice President Strategy

I have been working at VMware full-time

Pros

VMware is always pushing and entering new markets. There is a good culture for the most part, and for those that want to learn and grow, lots of opportunities.

Cons

Complexity due to many acquisitions and integrations. Natural for a company of this size

Former Employee - Senior Consultant

I worked at Sierra-Cedar full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

hourly pay option is the only good thing I can think of.

Cons

no job security, zero loyalty from management, no training, employees are just a number

Advice to Management

Terrible company to work for overall. I worked for them for over 7 years as an hourly employee. Pay is good but your placement on the next project is solely based on who you know rather than how... talented you are. Once your project is over, and your manager doesn't find a new project, you are screwed! The entire company functions based on a 'groupie' mentality. I was on bench for a very long time, and during this time, I was made clear not to contact them, and wait for them to call you (What kind of company does this??!!). Also, the company refuses to spend money on training and retooling employees. Most of the employees are over the age of 50 and there is no direction in hiring new talent. Unless things change, I don't see a future for SCI. If you young, smart and ready to work hard, look elsewhere!
