    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Liberty and Space to employ own ideas and succeed
    Good Interpersonal relationships with Org
    Easy access to leadership in terms of ONLY communication

    Cons

    All your hard work is JUST appreicated, however the credit and cash will go to leaders
    Bad and age old thinking leadership
    No role models
    False promises, dirty politics, nepotism and inefficient leadership.
    work for 14 hours a days and get paid for just 8 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Recognise the merit and replace the so-called inefficient leadership with some fresh blood.

    Pros

    - Small close-knit company
    - They apply for permanent residency.

    Cons

    - The company has a very “coterie” mentality from the top – especially in middle management; A few people control the most and they defend their collective interests vigorously;
    - Bottom-kissers and self-promoters seem to rise quickly at the expense of more deserving candidates
    - There are a couple of exceptions but the middle & senior management do not have enough leadership qualities – follow the philosophy of management by secrecy
    - Has not grown enough for a company that has been in business for the last fifteen years
    - Fairness comes after bottom-line
    - Very poor pay structure; They don’t match 401k contributions

    Advice to Management

    Need more open culture - middle management operates under a "veil of secrecy".

    Pros

    SierraAtlantic is more like a family,So much like a family that even with their pathetic salaries, the employee thinks 10 times to leave the company,The Mid-level management is good enough to recognize you and project you to the Senior management,But thats all they can do.

    Cons

    1.Very very bad and low pay scales
    2.Absolutely No encouragement from the senior management.
    3.Very bad policies in holding back employees.

    Advice to Management

    Please for heaven sake review your salary structures, Its far below the market standard, So even with good workin hand you will be in a situation where you wouldnot have good people to work.I am surprised that a 15 yr old comapny in the US doesnot have bonuses for its employees

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Sierra Atlantic full-time

    Pros

    Very friendly and warm people. Family like atmosphere in the company. We always felt comfortable working with people. Made many life long friends here

    Cons

    Cost conscious and breaucratic. They tend to be penny wise and pound foolish. Many times they would spend hours on enforcing rules that saved pennies

    Advice to Management

    The professionalism and planning in the organisation should be improved. Focus should move from just doing it to doing it right the first time.

    Pros

    You will get to know a lot while working over here. Your learning curve will not be flat. Mostly you will have good colleagues.

    Cons

    Policies keep changing then and now, specially during appraisals the policies are decided just before your review process is about to start

    Advice to Management

    Overall it was really a nice experience, however please decide on the next year reward & review policy in the starting of your FY instead of in Jan
