Assistant (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – December 20, 2016
I soon realized after being hired at Sierra that the decision makers did not have the comprehension or interest in creating an efficient business model to control overspending and improve workflow. There is no support network and no human resources department. There is no training or support provided to 90% of the staff. Regardless, the staff are hard working, intelligent and caring individuals that provide the missing team environment that the executive wing is unable to provide.
Technician II (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – September 5, 2016
Director was a micro manager who conflicted with the Service manager. Director told me to perform a job and kept changing his mind, because he was telling me how to do my job and I told him it wouldn't work because it was not the right was to perform it. I lasted there 2 weeks because he was threatened by me because I challenged his authority. I only challenged him because he was telling me to work the job and the result would have been like a rookie was performing the work. I am professional and am not going to do a half a job or do the job unprofessionally.
Every body else were fantastic
Health benifits package horrable only for employee nothing for family
Sierra sells the jail systems broken outdated products and sends the Sierra team to go install it and it never works out. They always have a Hard time paying their employees and sometimes don't pay at all. You work out of state at minimum wage and there is no moving up in the company. And when you leave they file false claims with the unemployment office and take your whole last paychecks as an (advance). This is a crooked broken company that Noone should trust. Do not get their security equipment it's a major headache and Sierra is a sinking ship.
You get to pay for flights out of your pocket. Your broke
Panel Technician (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – May 5, 2015
Typically a day consists of just building panels and wiring according to blueprints (so it is easy to just stay in focus to get the job done). Some jobs you also have to configure cameras using IP addressing and also configure CCTV's. Management needs improvement. Co-workers are awesome to work with. Really hard to advance in different departments. There was some great ways management showed their appreciation towards the employers but now that got taken away. Lots of repetitive heavy lifting.
Laid back, great co-workers
Terrible management, horrible advancement opportunities, no raises or bonuses
Welder/Installer (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – January 6, 2013
Good hard working job, just what you could expect from a construction job. I had the freedom and respect from the bosses to get my job done everyday in a timely matter for the best for the company and the project. The employees were like family and we all relied on everyones skills to learn from and to grow together. Lots of heavy lifting most days and lots of safety fundamentals to follow with everything you do. Management was young as was the company and learned as it grew. I really enjoy working with my hands and i love the progress and finished product of everything I did. Most reawarding job i have had so far.
Operations Assistant (Former Employee) – Brighten – October 21, 2014
I really enjoyed working for this wonderful company. They allowed me to take full ownership of my work and department. The lack of advancement was frustrating and when the market started to go south the company took a temporary hit. Great company and overall staff.
