I have been working at Sierra Nevada Corporation full-time (Less than a year)
I have worked for SNC for 8+ years and have always been attracted by the family culture the owners, Eren and Fatih have created within a large company. In many aspects it feels like a small close knit company. They are generous to their employees with the high level of benefits including the 401k match, bonuses, and medical insurance. They are also generous and have a heartfelt compassion to help those in need, albeit employees experiencing a family crisis or victims of natural disasters, including the recent hurricane relief effort of $1M, offering matching contributions to the amount raised by the employees. They don't do this out of obligation, but they do these things because of who they are. I am blessed to have the opportunity to work for Sierra Nevada. The work is gratifying, the people I work with are great, and the work that we do is important. Eren and Fatih have a generous and compassionate heart and are making the world a better place.
I would like to see a Roth 401k option
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation.
The interviewer was friendly, professional and immediately put me at ease. They had my resume up and my pre-interview questions from HR up as well. He referenced it often, and took notes. Questions were intelligent, relevant, and insightful. He was plainly spoken, but very intelligent.
