    I worked at Sierra-Cedar full-time

    Pros

    Organization doesn't force an outward culture (shared services BI / EPM) and pays well.

    Cons

    Organization has a social / political slant (shared services BI / EPM). If you know your "place" you will have no issues. Pays well, but no perks; therefore, your net may be the same. Some say medical is expensive, again reducing the value of pay.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say, management is actively supporting the sub-culture with hands-on support. For those who call themselves professional, there is no room for bigoted activism.

    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...
