    I have been working at Sierra-Cedar full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    SCI culture is to put the client success first. SCI has the largest independent Higher Education consultancy. If you are a student professional, this is the place to be. Multiple services lines with Workday, Oracle & Salesforce, for example. You are able to chart your own learning/growth path. It's fun, rewarding and the people are committed to client success. Leaders are accessible - it's a flat organization... that has been in existence since 1981! Very supportive clients.

    Cons

    Overall corporate strategy can seem cloudy. It is not broadly communicated. Uncertainty about ownership structure and long term direction - this leads people to think the company is always for sale Sometimes, you need to self-manage your workload to achieve the work/life balance you need. Working from home, when not traveling to client site is mostly great but difficult for some to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Share the corporate direction more broadly. Remind the teams of their impact and importance in support of the direction. Increase industry focus and partnerships - get closer to the client mission.

    Vacation, flexibility, hours, and co-workers

    No real room for advancement. Otherwise nothing major too mention.

    Advice to Management

    Make it possible for co-workers to congregate and get to know each other in the office every once in a while.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Sierra-Cedar full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Competitive salary, and most people work remotely.

    Cons

    The environment is very clickish and on the hosting side very Peoplesoft heavy. Hosting of other SaaS or ERPs has not been developed.

    Advice to Management

    Quit promoting incompetence and allow people to apply for positions instead of just moving people into positions they may not want to be moved to.
