    I have been working at Ciber full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ciber has great work-life balance. They understand that people have families and work hard to accommodate when things happen.
    Ciber (like businesses) does a great job of adapting to the ever changing world around them. They are always trying new programs and technology to make the Company better.
    The Personal Time Off when a new consultant starts is very generous.

    Cons

    Ciber has new management and are awaiting what's to come next.

    Pros

    Local management very good, if local to the HQ some of the benefits like box seats were up for grabs if the VIP's did not need them.

    Cons

    They could not focus on or work with DoD type jobs. They ended up selling the division to get out of that business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better options to accessing job resources for the tech folks. Select a better method on workers that go over the max vacation amounts. Notification in e-mail, on the pay stub would be good methods to use when the employees are in a use/lose period.

    I worked at Ciber full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited potential to earn commissions IF you can find those needles in the haystacks!

    Cons

    Oversells their staffing capabilities and expects HR/Recruiting to fill positions faster than the market allows and for lower compensation than the market is paying. This leads to working with candidate quality levels that most reputable Recruiters would prefer not to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either increase compensation to the market levels or higher in times where talent is scarce or be prepared to work with talent that does not check off 10 out of 10 boxes.

    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.

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Raleigh, NC
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Raleigh, NC

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

    Pros

    Payment on a regular schedule; time tracking application easy to use

    Cons

    Never available to discuss problems and slow in finding out benefits information from company headquarters. When account manager or recruiter change never inform you so you do not have any one available to contact. Have to go through part time admin assistant. Wait days for someone to return calls and emails.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your consultants. Follow Federal law regarding healthcare benefits.

    Pros

    there are some very highly skilled and knowledgeable personnel at company who were a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    management is revolving door and doesn't care about the rank and file. Ever changing corporate strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with 1 game plan instead of ever shifting strategy. Pay attention to your employees, especially your consultants as they are your biggest assets!

    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

    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.
