    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

    Great company to work for. HR always friendly and quick to respond to any question or provide necessary direction if needed. HR plays an active role in job placement when current position comes to an end.

    Cons

    I was actually not able to locate a new position when my project completed, however CIBER did play a very active role trying to assist me in doing so.

    Pros

    Ciber has been an enjoyable place to work in the time that I have been here. They are a strong employer which offers new opportunities for those who wish to take them. They have a robust self-paced internal training program that allows for growth and learning. I have had the opportunity to work on multiple projects, performing different roles on some. The flexibility of assignments and responsibility has allowed for valuable experience and also kept me from getting bored. One of the best things about Ciber are the people that I work with. Everyone on my project are team players and not only support their coworkers but also take pride and ownership in the work that they do. The changes that our new CEO has been rolling out over the past 12 months will only make a great company better. It's not very often that someone can say that they look forward to going to work, but in all honesty, I do.

    Cons

    Only change I would like to see is a better 401k program.

    Advice to Management

    There have been some great changes in our area, keep up the good work!

    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.
