Low pay, sub par middle managers

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Low pay, sub par middle managers. Get paid thirty to fifty percent less than standard IT pays in the province. Ok - if you're just trying to get your foot in the door but try and get out immediately after getting some experience

The culture of the acquired company (Sierra Systems) was a very tight group who protected and isolated themselves.

The culture of the acquired company (Sierra Systems) was a very tight group who protected and isolated themselves, had outdated concepts and relied on new employee's for knowledge. NTT being a (Dells Services) was much better inline with the new modern IT demands, Sierra Systems was still very much catching up. Once the full merger has completed (changing the mindset of the Sierra System's middle and senior Managers) it would be a much better environment to work in, I just hope the parent company (NTT Data) can stay the course or they will start to make bigger changes (which they have started to do). The hardest part of the job was watching the same mistakes happen over and over again.

Pros

competitive salary and benefits, fast to implement new technologies into the company (NTT Data)

Cons

The old Sierra Systems employee's culture, communications, and lack of vision in securing and keeping clients long-term.

Fast paced work style is expected

Good work life balance but no over time benefit. Good management but it all depends on the client you are working for. Possible to get promotions based on how we perform.

Pros

Good mentoring

Cons

Sometimes stressful

I really love working here, I just don't expect to move anywhere

The Pros - When in office, they supply you, amply, with tea, coffee and whatever you like in them in mountainous quantities. They also don't skimp on cost or variety. They are attentive of ensuring most people are kept comfortable with their seating and desk setup programs, though it can take time to process requests, and generally encourage personalizing your small space. Strictness to what you can do in downtime varies project to project, as do many, many other factors. The location I work in is *fantastic* for commuting, and they've been wonderful during COVID in being mindful to not make staff ill. They also have done their best to be mindful of disability, LGBTQ+, or cultural needs on site.If a contract ends, they ensure you have really good severance, and will extend your healthcare package several months after a layoff. They DO actively seek to bring back former employees if you've been a good team member.The Cons - They ask you to do 30+ hours of training per year, minimum that, at the end of the day, is mostly meaningless. If your project closes, don't hope that taking any in house training to have any impact on placement to another project. Don't expect their training to help you advance your career. You get zero certifications from it. Any positions above you will likely require a ridiculous number of years experience you will not get stymied in the same position.Like most companies handling contracts, your contract can be terminated at a moment's notice leaving you out of work in little time.If you want to better your salary, or your position you have - 

Pros

lots of tea/coffee etc supplies, great healthcare package, ergonomics program, cultural support, lgbtqia support, reasonable disability support, centralized offices, clean offices

Cons

meaningless training, HR can be hit or miss, Contract instability, poor chance of advancement, minimalistic raises

Great work life balance but pay not upto industry standard

Great work life balance but pay not upto industry standards.Individual projects varies but there was no growth opportunities. No salary hike or bonus unless you fight for it.

worst place to work as CSR

Never apply to CSR jobs at NTT. Job is temporary, no support for CSR's. Supervisors won't help agents. You don't get any feedback on your calls. Breaks are unpaid

Pros

Coffee, Tea, Ping Pong table

Cons

No paid breaks, for 8 hour shift, you have to work 9 hours

Not a nice place to work! High turnover

The salary sucks! Hours are long. No benefits whatsoever, no team spirit. Everyone is on their own and you are left to basically fend for yourself. The team I worked with is one of the worst, very high turnover and management doesn't care....afterall, there are always new immigrants looking for work

Pros

No weekend work, training was good

Cons

Long hours, low pay

Regimental Work Attitude

The workplace environment is regimental and like boot camp. I always have a feeling of not free. Rigid rules. Fraternising with other staff members and colleagues is not encouraged.

Service based company

it's a service based company and you work for their clients. Once their clients have no interest in you, you will be terminated unless they find you another position.

A half-decent place to work...

They seem to value the people that they have. Prefer to promote from within (I was hired for one project and then got recruited/selected for a second.....based on what I hope was performance). The hardest part that I found about the positions that I have held with NTT was that while they don't expect you to work later than your eight hours, they sometimes set high(er) expectations for those eight hours. You definitely meet a wide variety of individuals there, some of them good and some not so much.

Challenging

The daily routine is challenging and lacks focus.Daily tasks are constantly shifted without clear guidance. Limited support provided and work/home balance is not a priority.

Great people. Company has a lot of red tape

Big company and feel. Lots of red tape and expectations. I wouldn't recommend this company if you like freedom and want to make your own decisions. ....

The management is very good and the work culture is also better than many organizations. However, the salary is not meeting the expectations level. They offer many courses to improve the quality

productive and easily accessable to any work.

Working environment is highly diversified and collaborative. Good management. Contracts are always up for review need to stick with it and build a rep. Can be very stressful when a project shuts down. The people Halifax office are the best and really like working there

Horrible company

The trainer for the classes was extremely rude. She taught the classes so fast, no one could really understand it all. When I or anyone else said "you're going too fast". Her attitude was too bad. The docked me a day for leaving sick, yet the rest of the class left one hour after me, and never lost any pay.

Pros

None

Cons

Horrible pay.
