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

    Pros

    Unlike many consulting firms that seem to be purely driven by project margins, Sierra Systems if very focused on client value. Unless you're interested, you'd never find out how well (or not) the company or your project is doing, because the emphasis on the projects at hand. The consultants are mostly good, and many have there been for a long time. There is not much internal competition.

    Cons

    The company has some very long-term client and long projects, which means that you could find yourself working on the same project for a much longer time than anticipated. You are responsible to built your own career and management won't push you much to grow so it's up to you. The company is actually Canadian and sometimes seems to be a little too much so, afraid to be aggressive.

    Advice to Management

    The company is still a "best kept secret" to the outside world, especially in the US. The focus on public sector clients worked well in the past but may not work so well in the recession.

    Pros

    If you are on a good project it's great. The company has some strong client relationships so that can help set things up for success.

    Cons

    Limited control over where/what you work on. Unreasonable demands if your project is underbid or over promised.

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

    Pros

    Very friendly corporate hierarchy and corporate culture, You will be able to work on very different projects using a large scope technologies. This is the place where you can grow into a managerial position and be happy with it, a lot of traveling is usually required - but this can be worked around individual preferences. I found myself in a position where a very strong and competent technical mentorship was in place.

    Cons

    If you don't like to be a road-warrior - not a place for you...

    Advice to Management

    More private sector attention !!!
