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

    Pros

    Good teammates that do their best in with Cibers typical no loyalty corporate mentality.

    Cons

    No loyalty at all. Worked six months. Never given anything but praise. Spoke to manager maybe twice. They preach good game but do not stand behind their employees at all. The minute you go on the bench or they decide to replace you with an off-shore resource they will. I got a call on a Friday from a very cold as ice VP who said, Today is your last day. I could not get another word out of her mouth. I was very insulted. If you work for Ciber, don't stop looking for a job because when the rush is over, your gone.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with some respect. Your going to run out of resources to use and abuse. I have had a couple people who have been made offers by Ciber if I thought it was a good place to work. I told them only if they want to get worked to death the made to feel like a total loser when they get laid off. What goes around comes around.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management not moving quickly enough to remedy issues.

    Advice to Management

    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 have been working at Ciber full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fairly easy interview process and decent salary

    Cons

    No accountability of Roles and responsibilities; No support from Management; Awful Project Managers on project sites that always miss milestones and deliverable dates. Need to adapt Industry standards so they can compete.

    Advice to Management

    Get some leadership training and learn to implement Best Practices so you can be competitive in the market. You have no credibility.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
