    I have been working at Ciber full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The client. The assignment was interesting, challenging, dynamic and rewarding.

    Cons

    No support from corporate.
    You are dropped at the client site and forgotten, at least until it is time for someone to check one of the boxes necessary to help them build their resume.
    A lot of 'lip service' about 'consultant care' but no action.
    No support for the people in the field who are actually billing - ergo paying the salaries of all these other people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating the billable consultants like they are there to serve you. Remember who is doing the delivery. Remember the customer is always right and that they have many options to meet their needs.

    I worked at Ciber as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Better than average salary, casual dress

    Cons

    No guidance, constant change in direction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The managers and project managers have no consistency for processes and how they want their support team to execute a project. Ensure those interviewing candidates ask the questions appropriate to the position they are hiring for

    More worried about making money than worrying about keeping the employee happy.

    Poor professionalism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get professional
    Communicate better with workers
    Stop bidding these projects so they are impossible to succeed at
    Watch your back - contractors are a small, close-knit community - do them wrong...

    Pros

    It's a job until you can find a better one

    Cons

    Absolutely no management support. You probably will never meet your manager. They churn through people. The average tenure is less than 1 year. You are just a body. Look elsewhere, anywhere if you can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a crap about the employees and the business.

    I worked at Ciber full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    If you're just starting career, can be an ok first job- but treat it like that. Don't settle in; continue job search and get out of CIBER as soon as you can.

    Cons

    Horrible corporate culture. Leadership lacks integrity & accountability. Shysters.
    No opportunity for growth.
    Account executives I worked with were clueless and only good for an occasional free lunch.
    Regional manager was inaccessible, out of touch and didn't care about clients or consultants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together. Learn and implement the basics of operating a business: contract management, financials, remedial organizational skills for meeting time lines.

    Pros

    Managers (who have now departed) were decent

    Cons

    Would not work for or with this company ever again. Management plays games and does not follow protocol.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing games with your employees, it reflects on everyone.

    I have been working at Ciber full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Didn't have to talk to anyone. No oversight from a boss. No one cared what I was doing or where I was going

    Cons

    Completely disconnected. From their staff and from their clients. At best this is just a body shop with 50% mark ups and no value add. No reason to use these guys when so many other companies actually CARE about their clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the walk. Flying in to town just to sit in a meeting room and not talk to your staff belittles and demotivates. Get out in the field and actually talk to a client or contractor about what actually matters. You'll find a great deal of favoritism going on, no action being taken, and frustrated clients who are giving up and going elsewhere. Also, get new recruiters because yours are costing you a ton in lost opportunity.
