    Pros

    Ideal environment for personal growth. Knowledgeable & helpful employees. Tremendous potential.

    Cons

    Poor corporate culture. Lacks proper leadership. Salaries are at the lower-end of the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    'Get it together - Please!' Look at the 'big picture'. Think out of the box.
    Once you start losing good resources, it is downhill from that point onwards.

    I have been working at Ciber full-time

    Pros

    -no micro management
    - work life balance is good, again it depends on project

    Cons

    - no training or what so ever from the company, when in need they just hire from market. For training there is a virtual skill port portal which is of no use in learning any new technology. No class room training or paid training or skill grooming session is organised. Spineless people to talk to client and take the consultants for training with few days off, all they are worried is about billing loss.
    -

    - no growth plans, you will be locked in to a client project for a position and you will be a money mending machine from then on and once you are out of billing, it is tough to get placed in a progressive position.
    - new CEO trying to change many things and but nothing is taking shape and getting visible, everything is in mails
    - top level executives debate on best BBQ places in open mails while they have to actually discuss the growth of the company, make one wonder if they are really in safe hands.
    - still works and behaves like a body shopping consultants firm while they try hard to showcase them self as a service based company.

    Pros

    Great people on team. management has no clue of what is going on. If micromanagement is your idea of ideal work environment, then this is for you!

    Cons

    Everything is a fire drill here. manager is outdated and has a industrial revolution mentality. manager does not care for employees and only looks out for itself. pitty

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire current manager

    Pros

    Company values like this are hard to find in this day and age. Salary and benefits are very good. Nice people to work with and are very helpful with work and life issues. They have good communication with the client (BCBSNC)

    Cons

    Expand the company to other clients in NC; not just BCBSNC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need on-site account managers to be more attentive to contractor's issues or needs.

    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 an 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.

    I have been working at Ciber as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    You can make good money as contract employee. Negotiate to get very highly hourly rates.
    Management does not bothers you if you are a contract employee.

    Cons

    You are stuck to the salary.
    No big projects. You often work as individual contractor at the client location.
    Poor & no coordination with leadership.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Ciber (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Like at any decent sized company, there are some smart and good people. My job in particular had a lot of flexibility, which was appreciated, however that was only because my division was being ignored and would be eventually sold off.

    Cons

    Company is too decentralized - regional offices do whatever they want to get business, including accepting substandard deals with little to no profit margin or that fail / hemorrhage cash to fix. This was one thing they were going to try to work on, maybe they've improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find revenue.
