    Pros

    This is a consulting company. If you are talented and relevant to the SCI business offerings, you will stay busy. And you will be well compensated. You will also have a lot of flexibility in the way you manage your piece of the business. You might travel, you might not depending on the contract needs. There are options for everything... compensation structure, 401k, benefits (meh...). Generally people are helpful and...

    Cons

    It's very easy to be on an island. Communication with upper level management is almost non-existent. There is no clearly defined mission for the company to evolve, so I have some concerns about what is on the horizon in the next 5 years as PeopleSoft needs (core business) decline. Professional development is largely driven by the employee's desire, and reimbursement for out of pocket costs will be considered case...

    Advice to Management

    Time to modernize. Let's figure out exactly what the technology landscape will look like and go after it. Spend some money on improvements to internal systems. Provide access to data systems to the teams. Educate and organize the sales effort with an eye on the future instead of status quo and renewals. Be present. More frequent company-wide communication about the state of the business would benefit everyone.

    I worked at Sierra-Cedar full-time

    Pros

    Pay is competitive, remote work allowed for certain roles

    Cons

    Stagnant solution sets need to be expanded beyond PeopleSoft. "Bring your own device" policy is disconcerting & theoretically allows their IT department free reign over your computer anytime, including after working hours. Lines of business are siloed & management fosters office politics and in-crowd fiefdoms. Virtually non-existent opportunities for growth or vertical advancement. If you're not "in" then your...

    Advice to Management

    Gender discrimination is not OK, nor is playing favorites. Don't be afraid of a little diversity in your hiring practices.

    I worked at Sierra-Cedar full-time

    Pros

    The compensation and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Management is very top-heavy, authoritative, militaristic, political, and controlling. When a new policy is rolled out, they threaten their employees with unnecessary disliplinary action to ensure compliance. Displays a great deal of favoritism, and if you are not one of their favorites, your hard work will go unnoticed. No room for personal growth. Oh and by the way, they seemed to have taken the advice in one of the...

    Pros

    The consultants at SCI are tremendous and work very hard. Management cares about quality of life. Clients are like family.

    Cons

    Not SCI specifically, but consulting is a tough life. SCI tries to make it fun.

    Advice to Management

    The best part about SCI is the people. Not that it is likely, but don't ever lose site of that.
