    I have been working at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Sierra offers clients a wide range of services. A lot of the contracts are industry average installations and support, but there are some very interesting AI, Machine Learning, UI projects people can get behind and be proud of. Good people in the Microsoft Practice

    Cons

    Bought by a Japanese mega-conglomerate in 2019, nobody knows where this new leadership will take them. The internal culture is room temperature oatmeal.

    I have been working at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Sound financial management, challenging assignments, good people that generally practice transparency and like each other. They look after their people, have well thought out career maps and a good career advisor program.

    Cons

    They need to find ways to introduce more relationship building within the company. It's tougher in a consulting company but more social events would help bring people together. Good people when you get to know them though😁

    Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company Response

    December 15, 2017HR Analyst

    We recognize that not everyone is after career advancement and our career planning tools really look to support every Sierran regardless of what stage in their career they may be in. We are very happy you recognized that. Having a remote workforce and offering flexible work arrangements do make in-person connection a little more challenging. We try to encourage employees to come into the office more regularly with initiatives like “Come into the Office Thursdays” where employees bond over coffee and donuts. We also have quarterly market meetings followed by refreshments to encourage relationship building and networking. Many employees appreciate the flexible work arrangements we offer or they are working on a client site so while they may not make it out to all events but they do try to make it out to some. We increased our training budget this past fiscal year and will continue to maximize our training budget so that we can train as many employees as possible. Thank you for your feedback!

    I worked at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have some good people, but they are rapidly leaving

    Cons

    Make sure you have everything on paper, especially overtime. I had 124 overtime hours which were approved on timesheets, but never paid in full (I got paid $2.94/hr for these overtime hours)

    Former Employee - Consultant 

    I worked at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Smart great people to work with. If you are a seasoned professional that likes travel and doesn't need to learn new skills good place to make money if you are working full-time hours and you don't need to look for clients like you would if you were an independant. If you are want to learn and develop your career, hard to move from project to project so best to work for another firm (out of consulting) where you can grow, get mentoring/support and likely overall work on more interesting projects.

    Cons

    Not enough communication when one project ends and another begins which leaves people wondering and have seen many skilled people leave. Somewhat disorganized and org structure is odd. Some projects less than interesting work. Organization has been in significant change mode 2+ years with way too many good people leaving. Too many changes, benefits/perks taken away and not enough communication. Employee engagement/retention is not a focus; not the top employer it once was. Sr Mgt rating includes VPs, Unit/business line GMs.
