      Pros

      Awesome team, good benefits, good working environment. I've been with this company for over 14 years and there is a reason why I haven't left. I'm not a rarity, there are many that's been here for over 10 years and that says a lot about the type of company Sierra is. It takes care of its employees.

      Cons

      Location is in Richmond, can be far for some to get to, especially when you have to cross a bridge(s) to get there. Growth opportunity can be limited in certain positions.

      Pros

      Lots of freedom to direct the quality and features of an embedded software project. The management is demanding nonetheless and expects a high quality deliverable. Did not have to work exceedingly long hours.

      Cons

      The company is always evolving its product focus to catch the next growth opportunity. Typically this is highly correlated with maximizing the stock price. Therefore changes such as job termination, or major change in project focus is expected. Also has led to lack of quality, accountability, or untested features as the project tasks are more narrowly focused.
