    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...

    I worked at Sierra-Cedar full-time

    Pros

    Good earning potential - if you choose the Hourly plan and manage to stay billable. Management is mostly hands off. Great 401K

    Cons

    Salary plans are not competitive with what other companies offer. Most people I knew took the Hourly plan, which is great if you're willing to take some risk and can keep billable. Bench time is a killer. Benefits costs are outrageous. Employee shoulders close to 100% of the cost. No raises so you better negotiate a good rate when you start. No training whatsoever. ...

    I worked at Sierra-Cedar full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people. Supportive management. Generally a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    No company sponsored training. No training program. Training costs are partially paid by the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Greater support for training. Encouraging cross training and training on new products would be win-win for the employee and company.
