I have been working at Ciber

Pros

I have found them willing to accommodate when special situations arise. They communicate with their consultants, offer them benefits, give them feedback, provide them with opportunities for growth and skill-enhancement, and generally treat them quite well.

Cons

This is my second assignment with them. I have no problem with the way in which they are handling me. My biggest complaint is that the client in each situation was a large corporation that offered little technical stimulation and challenge. In the first assignment, the client had a corporate culture that was right out of the 1940s, and it seemed to me that they had no idea what someone with my skill set did. In my present assignment, I am bogged down by the corporate and governmental bureaucracy that burdens this industry, and I am constantly amazed at the abysmal writing skills of their managers and the horrible way in which projects are managed. Heads would roll if this client were a smaller organization without deep pockets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

CIBER needs to add smaller, more innovative, and more exciting businesses to its client base.

    Top quality consulting company, but very much a "body shop"

    I worked at Ciber

    Pros

    Professional people. Great projects. Good Benefits. CIBER is a not really a "project based" consulting company, but more like "I need someone good and potentially a few more people if it works out" type company. Very professional and well organized work environment. Full time salary and benefits.

    Cons

    They pay by salary (not by the hour) so they get much more of a "cut" than hourly consulting. Yet if there isn't coverage even for one day (in between projects) they will dock you for overhead and just cut you loose. This kind of lower salary usually comes with "bench time", but CIBER treats salaried people like hourly "easy to cut" people who usually can get way more per hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tell consultants they are "full time, part of the family" at CIBER then just drop them when a client project ends. Stop misrepresenting hourly consulting as permanent work just to get more of the hourly rate. Talent will avoid you like the plague.
