    CIBER has a lot to learn

    I worked at Ciber

    Pros

    When I was recruited into CIBER I was promised a great deal. I was told they were going to create a consultancy which was very new to CIBER what I found out was they were going to continue to be a "Body" Shop. They do give you some freedom with regards to daily job assignments although I do believe it is more because they are too busy to pay attention to what you are really doing.

    Cons

    When I was hired there were 25 people in the practice I was assigned too. When I was let go because "We are going in a different direction" there were only 9. I truly believe they do not have a clue within the practice I was assigned to on how to retain talent. During the 18 months of my employment I watched 2 Senior Directors come and go, 3 Delivery Directors come and go. They do not promote from within they would rather go outside the practice to find what they would consider qualified leadership in spite of the fact they do not understand the technology solutions they are trying to present. In short, the practice is a microchasm of what is really terribly wrong with the entire company. They believe in periodic purges of personnel whom they deem as unproductive. Their mantra is be billable at 100% or better or else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    During my time within the company I have watched "protected" people survive at CIBER only because they knew how to "suck up" better then others. Real talent isn't appreciated it is all about politics and CYA behavior. I am not sure if this is ever going to change. What was once a great company, "so I am told" is nothing more of a shell of it's former self.

    I have been working at Ciber

    Pros

    The people make it fun. The client work is interesting. The work itself is challenging. The staffing jobs are still staffing jobs. They have tried many times to make it consulting, and it is not.

    Cons

    As long as the client is happy you will be happy. I have been on the same client for 8 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being dishonest with people. Many projects are going well, and some of them have been going poorly for 3 years and even longer. When are you going to open your eyes and fix the projects that are broken? We spend hours giving you reports of the status. You know if the projects are working or they are not. We do. Why can't you make a decision?
