    I have been working at Ciber full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are good. PTO policy very nice. I love working with the team I am with at the client site.

    Cons

    The company need a clear direction going forward. They need to start investing in long term employees by giving pay increases.

    Advice to Management

    It is time to lighten up the senior and upper management and take that money to invest in the employees bring in revenue to the company.

    Pros

    Great pay, unlimited PTO (those complaining they can't use it, get a spine and request the timeoff), management tries to understand your motivations

    Cons

    This is a company that is struggling financially, low/non-existent bonuses, some senior consultants lack emotional intelligence and are scared to share information because of their self esteem or ego, lacking a real "culture"

    Advice to Management

    Keep communications with employees open and honest at all times, promote those who are great mentors and leaders and not just those who want a pay raise just because they whine about it. Remember, if employees are happy, it will have a downstream affect on the clients and the bottom line.

    Pros

    Friendly people, good entry level salary.

    Cons

    Management constantly is "reacting" to things, no being proactive in their decision making. As such, decisions always seem to be shooting from the hip, making for a very unstable work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Plan ahead. Train your team leads to be leaders of people, not just managing data.

    Do NOT roll anything out publicly, that has not been developed completely.

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

    Pros

    Decent benefits, generally good co-workers

    Cons

    Incentive programs for sales and recruiting conflict with incentive programs for management. This resulted in many situations in which local management would not approvex deals that would provide sales and recruiters incentives, but which adversely affected their bonuses. This made it a very frustrating place to work.

    This was compounded by the fact that corporate management sought margins that are not achievable in staffing business, which was about 80% of their business.

    Advice to Management

    Get a true compensation consultant to review your incentive programs so that all people are incented to achieve the same thing. Get realistic about achievable margins.

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

    Pros

    I liked the people and enjoyed a decent work-life balance. I enjoyed many projects. Exposure to diverse technology ensured opportunity for a lot of skills. Ciber doesn't hide what it is - it's a cold, hard consulting company. It's up to you to maintain employment. They don't pretend to care - no training, no guarantees, no career path...that's on you. But they don't hide that fact either...you have to know what you're getting. It's a good and bad thing I suppose.

    Cons

    Always a concern that you would be on the bench or no follow-up project. The latest concern is that upper management doesn't know what the hell its doing: lacking focus on sales, debt out the wazoo (Wells Fargo), and arrogantly chasing ridiculous initiatives like a modernization product to end all products (Momentum). Upper management has arrogantly pursued ridiculous initiatives that are not panning out - and too foolish to pull out and cut their losses.

    Advice to Management

    Stop driving the company into the ground. The CEO has single-handedly destroyed a company that practically ran itself. It might be too late now that Ciber needs to sell off activity in Europe and abroad to satisfy their outrageous debt. Sell Ciber to a competitor already - you are driving it into the ground like it's on purpose. The stock currently sits around 33 cents a share. It's a shadow of it's former self.
