    Pros

    I've worked for Ciber for nine years and started as a developer and climbed the ladder into management. Ciber was there every step of the way to coach and mentor me, and provided me the opportunity to get the support I needed to be successful.

    The new leadership team at the executive level is setting an example for executing against commitments and holding everyone including themselves accountable and that behavior is trickling down through to every level of management within the organization to where the consultants on the ground are feeling the commitment they are making to their success.

    Cons

    Ciber is located in a competitive market in Seattle and the local leadership team needs to find ways to find career mobility easier to achieve internally than externally.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to demonstrate accountability and commitment not only to the customer but to the consultants.

    Pros

    I've been with Ciber for two-years now and it has been a great experience. Lots of flexibility and lots of opportunity. Great managers that look after their folks.

    Cons

    The benefits for the company are mediocre at best; but probably on par for a company their size. Still a lot of areas where they are maturing and need to improve their processes, but overall the leadership at all levels is trying hard to do the right things.

    Advice to Management

    Sr Leadership: be more transparent about changes / impacts on the workforce; improve the compensation / bonus method. LOB Mgrs. Keep doing what you are doing, staying out front and looking out for your folks.

    Pros

    I recently returned to CIBER in a new role of Account Partner. For me, I love CIBER's innovative outlook and the variety of industries that are involved. I am also very excited to work for and with the team in Central Services, whom I have high regards and respect.

    Cons

    Like any company, CIBER has it's challenges, the challenge is managing your own career and outlook in life.

    Advice to Management

    Stay Connected to our teams, the current excitement is contagious and each consultant on every site will benefit from it!

    Pros

    Worked from home
    (somewhat) flexible hours...they say they're flexible but you have to be available from 8-5 for the client.
    Casual dress
    Work life balance (this is something that is falsely promoted by Ciber) was not as promised I was working anywhere from 12-15 hr days then being penalized for being hospitalized (due to chronic conditions) with only missing one day of work. Worked Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, New Years Eve and New Years Day.
    Paid overtime.

    Cons

    No stream line communication from management on the consulting side vs. management from the client side. Like walking a tight rope. At any time you can be "released" from a project without a reason as to why (basically laid off). So not a lot of stability. The learning curve is large, cannot ask the client too many questions but yet no one on the consulting side to go to for support. Very frustrating place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure communication is stream lined, set the expectation as to reporting to whom. I was told one thing from the client then another from Ciber which contradicted. Cross train the employees so the "consultants" feel like they have more support. Don't make up titles for "inside" Ciber which have no relevance to the job at hand or to the client.
