    I have been working at Ciber full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good company, recently acquired by HTC Global. HTC benefits are not as great as Ciber, future remains to be seen.

    Cons

    Very little communication from HTC with Ciber unit, Currently local management is not very responsive about issues, wage increases are a huge problem, lots of pushback when wages are mentioned the response is rude. HTC needs to address ate the local level or replace local manager that is capable.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and do not provide useless excuses.

    "Typical contracting firm. They do appreciate your work but dont have any proper career plans for you."

    Pros

    You work in the client space and as long as you are billable, you will get paid. At times they will arrange some appreciation lunch etc. immigration is handled in a professional manner.

    Cons

    No discussion regarding promotions etc . Limited or no option for high achievers. Getting hike is also not easy and getting new project is next to impossible unless the client manager release you.

    Advice to Management

    There is a difference between consultant and contractor. If you are planning to hire consultant who can get you more business in future, you need to invest in them.

    I have been working at Ciber full-time

    Pros

    The check is still clearing

    Cons

    After Ciber was purchased by HTC Global the disrespect and uncaring of the employees started showing up.

    PTO is a joke, you are expected to take national holidays and client holidays which could get to 10 days out of your PTO

    401 K seniority was promised but was reneged when the sale was finalized.

    Management or so called consultant managers are useless, they can't help, can't answer questions and not involved with the consultants.

    How are they going to do the annual reviews, if they happen and the manager doesn't know or have a clue what the consultant does.

    Unfortunately for most H1 consultants, they are stuck, but if this keeps happening and no resolution, there is always a way to get out.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair on the PTO give us the national holidays separate from PTO.

    People already started leaving and more will soon if you do not get your act together.

    Your valuation of Ciber with the consultant is going down are consultants start dropping off.

    Wake up !!!!!

    I have been working at Ciber full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * The company I am contracted to is excellent. I work with smart, caring people, in a collaborative environment, on interesting projects.

    Cons

    * CIBER was an excellent company to work for. Very responsive, great benefits, good people to work with. HTC Global, its current owner, removed all incentives, and ignores its employees.

    * Very little PTO. Of the scant PTO you are allotted, you are expected to take all National Holidays, and any other days your client may close. If you work in the US, that means ~8 days of your PTO is used, before you even begin the year.

    * Since my CIBER supervisor left (I don't know whether they left, or were laid off when HTC purchased the company), I have received zero professional feedback. Only once have I heard from my "supervisor," via a group email, to introduce themselves.

    * I am not expecting any kind of performance review, or raise. Bonuses are nonexistent (the bonus I was promised by CIBER never materialized, once we were purchased by HTC).

    * 401K match sounds promising, but the cap on that match is a pittance.

    Advice to Management

    If you wish to maintain talent, bring your benefits in line with those of other US IT companies. Find ways to communicate with, and reward, hard-working employees. Your employees are the face of your company!
