    I worked at Sierra-Cedar full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lot's of really good and talented consultants, although the workforce is aging - creating issues due to health and travel.

    Cons

    Sr. Management team misread the current reality of the market.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what is happening in the market - and plan accordingly. PeopleSoft has been on a decline for years, and yet most of your eggs are still in that basket - from a consulting and managed services perspective. Build up better and more aggressive relationships in multiple products. The infighting between the Workday practices is just plain silly. How about investing in other applications and other...

    I have been working at Sierra-Cedar full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company has a open door policy and is open to take new ideas. All the employees you work with are all talented individuals as they are all experienced Hires.

    Cons

    You would be very comfortable in the position that you stop thinking beyond

    Advice to Management

    To make a difference, you need experiment and think innovative.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Sierra-Cedar full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I found that they are small and you are able to work under an entrepreneurial vein as long as you keep your end client happy and stay out of the way- then you are able to exist peacefully.

    Cons

    It seems that the cohesiveness of other groups does not exist in the WD group within its ranks. I found that they operate under a picks and chooses model and all others outside of this bubble are considered of a lesser caliber and hazed.

    Advice to Management

    Get control of rogue staff - or else your small fish- in- small pond status will remain.

    Lots of talented consultants. Mon-Thurs schedule at client sites.

    I have been working at Sierra-Cedar for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay. Staffing Managers ask about your interest/availability for projects. They actually seem to care about you, your workload, what you feel comfortable with. Flexibility. Co-workers - you work with a lot of very smart people. Work with a great product

    Cons

    You're on your own. There doesn't seem to be a place to go to information or help. Coworkers are busy so you feel guilty about asking them for help if it something that will take more than a few minutes. There is little guidance about expectations and it seems these expectations change with every project you are assigned. You work with a lot of very smart, talented people, but there's very little opportunity to...

    Advice to Management

    I don't really know what to say. It seems that what you are doing works for the vast majority of your employees. I've never thought of myself as being 'high maintenance,' but perhaps I am. In any case, I'm missing something. I guess if I could offer a suggestion, it would be this: You have to find ways to do a better job bringing new people into the organization and providing some type of on-going orientation for...

    Pros

    An absolutely great company to work for. Offers work/life balance, professional and experienced employees - wonderful co-workers. The culture is great - very helpful and supportive.

    Cons

    The benefits could be better (as with most companies) - but they offer two different plans depending on your needs which is pretty good.
