      Pros

      Company had a good work environment and was performing well.

      Cons

      More recently the upper management seems to not have a good idea of the direction they want to go. After recent acquisitions things are not looking well.

      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.
