    I have been working at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Sierra is by far the best (and healthiest) company I have worked for. From the recruiting process to on-boarding and team collaboration, this company is top-notch.

    The culture is extremely positive and employees are continuously supported and encouraged by colleagues and management. To give you a sense, we have an online recognition feed where people send out positive feedback to each other (for teamwork, excellence, initiative and integrity). This feed is used several times a day.

    As a consultant, there are numerous opportunities to leverage my skills and grow my capacity in business and tech. The portfolio of assignments that I get to work on are diverse, interesting and engaging. Sierra is a well-respected firm, and we have excellent, long-standing relationships with our clients.

    From new employees to staff who have worked with Sierra for 15+ years, people are consistently expressing how happy they are to work for such a great company.

    Cons

    None that I can see

    I have been working at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been at Sierra Systems for about one year and have enjoyed positive culture, competent colleagues, and caring, dedicated management team. I'm so pleased that as an organization, we live by our goal of delighting our clients. This means more collaboration, co-design and appropriate strategic advice. It means working across teams to bring the right expertise independent of the logo on their employment letter.

    Cons

    My experience to date has been positive, so I don't have cons to note.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the supportive spirit that leads to teams' excellence. Sprinkle in a bit more innovation and nudge the bar on office creature comforts. Nearly there ...

    Pros

    Sierra really cares about their people, and demonstrates integrity both internally and externally in all that they do. Great work life balance has been a huge asset.

    Cons

    Inconsistent raises across the board have led to frustration of some really great people. Lack of sponsored/focused training opportunities besides self-directed via online learning portal.

    Focus on the key staff you need to retain in order to stay competitive, and ensure they feel valued through appropriate raises and interesting training opportunities.

    I have been working at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Sierra Systems puts people first, employees and clients. I have been with Sierra a number of years and have had many different opportunities. I have also felt challenged but supported. Sierra believes in keeping employees happy keeps clients happy, and that keeps the business happy.

    Cons

    It's tough to be a consulting company in this difficult economy and with all the disruptive technologies. Some times this forces you into too many tactical decisions that do not align with longer term strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Ask yourself, before making day-to-day decisions, does this strengthen the company long term, or just deal with a 'today' issue?
