    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.

    I have been working at Sierra-Cedar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They give you a loan to buy a computer since they do not provide you with one (probably because they screwed over so many past employees out of their earnings that they left with those laptops but this is only speculation) They then require to manage the computer they give you a loan for (even though its your property) and require you to provide assessments of your own property like why you might have a contract on their...

    Cons

    Their medical plans are just horrible, had to go with my wife's plan since they are so bad especially since she's pregnant, glad I went with her plan and not theirs. When you first start, not only do they not provide you a computer here but they provide you a business loan to go buy on in case you do not have one. So that means, if they fire you before your 3 months is up (they take it out over the course of 3-4 months),...

    Advice to Management

    Grow up, you provide PTO and Family Leave for reasons, people taking those PTO and Family leave shouldn't be looked down on. Listen to others that have supported and engineered solutions for hundreds of institutions versus your small handful you have. Modernize your approach to the cloud, the cloud isn't just to host your 1 product environment, there are thousands of products in the cloud you can sell, don't be so narrow...

    I worked at Sierra-Cedar full-time

    Pros

    Organization doesn't force an outward culture (shared services BI / EPM) and pays well.

    Cons

    Organization has a social / political slant (shared services BI / EPM). If you know your "place" you will have no issues. Pays well, but no perks; therefore, your net may be the same. Some say medical is expensive, again reducing the value of pay.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say, management is actively supporting the sub-culture with hands-on support. For those who call themselves professional, there is no room for bigoted activism.

    I worked at Sierra-Cedar full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    hourly pay option is the only good thing I can think of.

    Cons

    no job security, zero loyalty from management, no training, employees are just a number

    Advice to Management

    Terrible company to work for overall. I worked for them for over 7 years as an hourly employee. Pay is good but your placement on the next project is solely based on who you know rather than how talented you are. Once your project is over, and your manager doesn't find a new project, you are screwed! The entire company functions based on a 'groupie' mentality. I was on bench for a very long time, and during this...
