    Pros

    This used to be a good place to work. A lot has changed since I started.

    Cons

    Lower end pay rates. Toxic atmosphere due to low morale. Company insists they interact with staff to promote, this is not what employees see.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff in regards to morale and pay bands. This would help retain employees. So many of our team have moved onto brighter futures with a better company.

    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
