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

    Pros

    Company culture is absolutely outstanding. Upper management is really responsive and the other consultants are all great to work with.

    Cons

    Travel can be much higher than expected. Was told about 30%, ended up traveling almost 65-70%. Compensation is a bit lower then elsewhere. Bonus plan is almost a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more competitive about salaries and bonuses. Take care of your better consultants and stop worrying about seniority.

    I have been working at Ciber full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best part of working for Ciber is the people. There is an awesome team in place in the Oracle Higher Education practice with monthly mentoring call and lots of collaboration among the consultants.

    Cons

    The company can be inconsistent in terms of creating and maintaining policies as well as hiring and promoting practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent and communicate!! Offer some additional training as well as opportunities for consultants to expand their skill set and not become disenchanted and bored.

    I have been working at Ciber full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    * Benefits - Offers three different options. The PTO (paid time off) is very generous in addition to the paid holidays.
    * Growth potential - Set your own goals- if you want to do more, there is an opportunity to do so. If you don't speak up, you won't get what you want. Tons of free training available (Ciber University).
    * Life/work balance - Awesome. Very understanding that life happens. Get your job done and they are flexible. Very grateful for this!!
    * Relocation - Ability to keep working for Ciber even if you have to move states (or to another country).

    Cons

    * Initial training - Make sure everyone knows what they are doing before they run on their own.
    * Onboarding process - This has gotten better. Go back to an in-person orientation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a lot of people in the company that are willing and want to help make positive change happen. New management really seems to care about what ALL of the employees think and are asking for input - get us involved and excited! Would like to see more communication to keep people up to date on what is going on. When people know there are changes that are being made, but don't know what they are of if they will be affected, it causes job insecurity and worry. Keep moving in the right direction!!

    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.

    I worked at Ciber as a contractor (less than a 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!
