    Pros

    CIBER Base Pay and Hourly Rates seem fair. Mostly decent benefits. Good clients. Freedom to do things your own way, very little supervision.

    Cons

    Not the place to be if you want a career. Very confused and confusing management that seems afraid to learn what's is and isn't working. So many hidden, unannounced changes of significance....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to market services. Hint: it's not a Silicon Valley product in a box. Executive management needs to focus on winning large multi-role, multi-year contracts, not eking another 1-2% on onesey-twosy staffing gigs. Don't chase every little thing, hunt the big game based on what you can win.

    CIBER had tremendous potential under dismissed leadership.

    I worked at Ciber

    Pros

    CIBER had decent benefits and competitive pay. Past leadership under Mac was transparent and you knew where you stood operationally, culturally and careerwise. They have some depth around IT testing but lack depth anywhere else.

    Cons

    New leadership tried to transform operations too quickly. Lost focus and continued "mile-wide" solutions with no depth (1-2 people total for a MS practice they brag about?). I wouldn't recommend this company. There are plenty of other firms in their space with much brighter outlooks for a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turn over the keys to someone else. North America is still a dog. Without niche focus on a few key solutions (2-3), Europe will have to carry the ball (profit) forward for you. The SG&A is so high because of their continued hiring and overpayment to senior leadership vs. investing in field/practice leadership.
