    I have been working at Ciber full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ciber, born in Detroit, continues to have the hard working stamina of people in the Midwest. More than 600 consultants in the Great Lakes region take pride in the work they provide to local clients and are proud to be Ciber employees. Our collaborative work environment and excellent customer service make Ciber a great place to work.

    Cons

    Ciber's financial struggles are a current setback, but think of where some of our client's stock prices were 7 years ago and where they are today. This is a challenge we will overcome.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in touch with your employees and continue communicating the news. Take pride in our accomplishments - many are working very hard to continue the legacy.

    I worked at Ciber full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good compensation. People are sincere.

    Cons

    Financial struggles are crippling the company and the brand. The CEO is not inspiring.

    Advice to Management

    Sell off divisions of the company that is not part of Ciber's core competencies. Examples would be Oracle and Infor. Then focus on growth.

    Pros

    I cannot think of a single thing to add here. Sometimes you got paid in full and paid on time.

    Cons

    Awful healthcare - massive deductible, could do better on welfare!
    Lie to the employee to get them onboard then reality sets in. Have to fight hard to get what was promised you
    Don't care about you as a person, your career or your growth. Run from this company as fast as you can!
    May not get paid - twice received only partial checks , entire company was paid late last year
    Company is under notice from NYSE for low stock value for continued listing. Heading for junk bond status!

    Advice to Management

    Sell your awful company and quit ruining people's lives and careers!

    I worked at Ciber full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wages were okay. Typical benefits. 401k (no real matching but still)

    Cons

    Disconnect with management, No incentive program that was worth anything.

    Advice to Management

    Ciber can do far better with bonuses and not tie them to company goals but make the goals local to the AREA and the practice WITHIN where you work. My bonus shouldn't be tied to a poor performing practice or group 1,000 miles away where we have no influence to either help or encourage. Bad methodology.

    Pros

    - Even the compensation and benefits were poor, it allowed me to pay the bills while looking for another job.

    Cons

    - Compensation and benefits, compared to other companies, was terrible.
    - Little or no contact with the Detroit office. Account managers were terrible in responding to questions in a timely manner.
    - Management was more focused on building relationships with their clients and cared less about the employees working for the clients.

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on your employees and its needs. Treat them as human and not as numbers!
