I have been working at Sierra Systems

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 ManagementAdvice

More private sector attention !!!

    Pros

    can work from home if required

    Cons

    not all consultants has a say while creating a sow. if you are a consultant you end of working late nights to meet the deadlines in SOW.
    leaves employees at their own perils when issue arises with a client.
    less pay and benefits could be better when compared to other consulting firms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to be an advocate for your employees if the client is wrong and pushing your employees.
    its not always about contracts, after all its your employee.
    pay overtime if employee ends up cleaning someone else's mess.
