    I have been working at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Sierra genuinely cares about its employees and clients and wants to do best for both. With the acquisition by NTT Data I believe there are many new opportunities for both our clients and employees.

    Cons

    Nothing material that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting your people and clients first ahead of revenue and profit. Keep taking care of your employees and clients, and they'll take care of the $$

      I have been working at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company

      Pros

      Close to train and parking.

      Cons

      Management are blind to most staff. Very small office, little interactions, can barely get new supplies, fingerpointing is chronic. There is also alot of office backstabbing going on, I have never been ok with this. Time to move on.

      Advice to Management

      Engage your staff. Get below the surface.
