    I worked at Ciber full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice contract staff. Many get to work from home. Very little oversight or direction. If you want to be left alone, this place is perfect.

    Cons

    Ciber very rarely renews vendor contracts, simply because they don't have the volume. All staff receive very low end compensation and there is no room for growth. The Management and Sales teams are a constantly rotating stream of "used car salesmen" with no expertise, no leadership ability, and no connection with their customer. This company gets eaten by their competition every single day because they don't follow any of the most basic principles of business or sales. Every one of the Sr. Management staff I met touted themselves as "Thought Leaders" yet knew nothing about this business or their customer. Collectively they can't agree to a plan and stick to it and so every facet of the business suffers. Ciber is completely lacking of leadership and direction and their customers, their employees, and their stock suffers from it. Why would you do business with this company? Even their employees can't answer that one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to a branch-governed model! You need local leadership to connect with the customer, set the tone for the region, to coach, motivate, and inspire, and to drive local branding. Changing to a global practices model moves your further from your customer.

    I worked at Ciber full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They offer a decent salary. They offer decent -- but not outstanding-- benefits for full-time employees. At the time I worked there, there was lots of talk of moving the business model from butt-in-chairs contracting to project work, which is generally far more interesting and fulfilling. Some staff augmentation engagements can last multiple years.

    Cons

    The opportunities for project work are a tiny fraction of what the company has to offer employees -- over 90% of the work is "staff augmentation" (butts in chairs). If you don't want to be paid to be a butt in a chair, you should look elsewhere. Opportunities for company-paid training do not exist -- you're expected to stay current on your own money. Often requested (required) to put additional hours on the job without billing on the timesheet, to make up for operational emergencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide what you want to be: a body-for-hire "staff augmentation" contract house, or a project-based contract house., Don't lure people into the company with prospects/hopes of doing project work "once you've proven yourself."
