    I have been working at Ciber full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Balanced work/life culture
    Some great people work for Ciber.

    Cons

    Management not moving quickly enough to remedy issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reviews should be top down and bottom up. Projects should be reviewed by the people on the project.
    Use of cheap labor from India fosters a sweat shop mentality.

    I worked at Ciber

    Pros

    Interesting work - good people until they leave.....

    Cons

    Constant turnover and upheaval - project staffing can be challenging - corner cutting encouraged to get the deal and to complete the project - people in leadership positions who have no business being there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs to lead and that includes holding those accountable who don't follow established procedures - work on creating a culture that encourages doing it the right way - no short cuts - Peter Principle on full display at the moment

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and close to home.

    Cons

    Management lacks the knowledge to hire and maintain a quality workforce. To many people have quit work with this company within their first month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say that management needs to take care of it's experienced people. Salaries and benefits are not that good.

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

    Pros

    High salary. Team support on-site ("the Ciber guys"). Very good computers supplied for work. Good benefits. I liked the Ciber sales guy.

    Cons

    Recruiter made a deal that the corporation did not keep.

    Incredibly clumsy bureaucracy: for time cards, "on-boarding", expense reports. The PeopleSoft website has the appearance and feel of a site designed in the late Twentieth Century. Lots of "do it twice" to get the result that you want.

    Never any personal contact with any manager or admin assistant, but lots of requirements, expressed in impolite ways, to "fill out the forms correctly."

    Corporate integrity is a real problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update the PeopleSoft site - probably by replacing it.

    Remeber that an employee should have personal contact with the manager. How many people did my manager "manage"? A dozen? A hundred?

    Control the excessive exuberance of the recruiters.

    Pros

    Good people with lots of industry experience; collegial atmosphere on projects;

    Cons

    Difficult to grow/move up within the company; experienced employees leaving due to neglect and managerial indifference; pay barely average and increases virtually nonexistent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better attention to the people doing the real work and find out what to do to keep them happy and engaged; create better and measurable paths for promotion and make those paths known to everyone.

  11. Benifits of consulting and sevice company comnbined

    I have been working at Ciber

    Pros

    Good work life balance atleast in my project.

    Cons

    No Training on technology, no investmnent on empoyee skill improvement. When ever they need a resoutrce they go to market pay a premium and get them and in doing so they have to release existing resources who were loyal working in out dated technologies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please invesment more on employee training as it is the only investment from management side which will give better returns. Infact Ciber has no other investment in NA region, all the consultants use client's infrastructure and resource and get trainied by client directly. all Ciber provides is a just a laptop to it's consultant and push them to client projects.
