Great place for self-starters. Great place for ambitious individuals.

Consultant (Current Employee)

Pros2 -3 years ago, Cigital was a company with many bright people and little methodology. Today, Cigital has a lot more methodology and structure in the way assignments are carried out. The training has improved by leaps and bounds. Contrary to other reviews, the management actually listens to it's consultants . The sales department does a fab job at NOT over selling (unfortunately, most consultants do not recognize this). The CEO appears to be transparent.
You get to build an excellent professional network as one gets an opportunity to work with different clients.
The work environment is pretty laid back and most senior staff are approachable (although different people have had different experiences).

ConsCigital does very little to recognize exceptional work. Hence, the loudest get more attention. So, if you are vocal and above-average, you get more recognition than if you are silent and brilliant. To give credit where due, once recognition is made, they do enough to keep you happy. Also, there are proposals for new measures. Let's see how they work
Most reviews are accurate about the bonus. They market it at 10%, but that number is a bit of a joke. Even the best employees don't hit that number (ever)
Don't expect to be pampered. This is a really not a place for people who require constant attention.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease market the bonus program differently (and if possible improve it).
Continue to be transparent
keep up the good work. I, for one am confident about Cigital's future as a company

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
