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

    Pros

    - Training is generally provided - It's good for your resume to work at one of the 'big' consultancies

    Cons

    - Absolutely 0 culture or feelings of 'team' - Scattered and disparate practices; so much so that you often don't know who is in your team - Terrible onboarding and support: The whole time i was there I legitimately had no idea who my direct report was, and most of my emails sent to the 'higher ups' were never replied to - You are expected to do things well outside your sphere of experience, and you are often...

    I worked at Sierra Systems, an NTT DATA Company

    Pros

    I was lucky enough to be on one of their big client sites. Best team of Windows/Systems engineers I've worked with in my career. Very well resourced. Pay good and projects interesting.

    Cons

    Client was in resources and with prices decreasing team was downsized, with no other clients to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, but get those sales / new customers up!

    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)

    Advice to Management

    Change management, especially middle level
