    I have been working at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Cons

    We don't get 5 weeks vacation every year after 20 years.

    I worked at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Training is generally provided - It's good for your resume to work at one of the 'big' consultancies

    Cons

    - Absolutely 0 culture or feelings of 'team' - Scattered and disparate practices; so much so that you often don't know who is in your team - Terrible onboarding and support: The whole time i was there I legitimately had no idea who my direct report was, and most of my emails sent to the 'higher ups' were never replied to - You are expected to do things well outside your sphere of experience, and you are often...

    Advice to Management

    Formalise an onboarding process and try to promote a culture because as it stands there is absolutely none

    Our core values at Sierra are Teamwork, Integrity, Initiative and Excellence. While you feel differently about Teamwork at Sierra, time and time again, employees have said “people” and “their team” are the number one reasons why they enjoy working at Sierra. We have great people ...

    I worked at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very friendly people to work with, all the way from top management down. The office I was in was a family-like environment and generates a cheerful, positive atmosphere. People get appreciated even for the littlest things, and team achievements are celebrated. Many opportunities to get your feet wet with new skill sets. Management is very easy to approach and great to talk to. Excellent benefits for a private company....

    Cons

    Could be more open to providing more than just online training (i.e. sponsoring courses with classroom delivery); more time needed for professional development

    Advice to Management

    Even during these slow times, keep up the great work, stay focused on your objectives, never forget the teams that you look after!!

    I worked at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Enjoyed the local teams that I worked with. The Western Canadian teams Edmonton, Winnipeg, teams are wonderful.

    Cons

    Company knew my leader was a bully and they did nothing about it. The HR department didn't action and a senior member the HR team moved on as a result of not being able to effect change. It was difficult to hire people into the organization and then fire them as soon as they hit the bench. The integration after the acquisition of RIS was badly handled and some great people were forced out of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Be courageous, deal with situations that are brought to your attention.
