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

    Pros

    Relatively good pay, decent benefits, flexible work hours as long as Client approves. They do try to place people who are on the bench. The local managers are mostly still good, competent people from the pre-HTC days.

    Cons

    There has been a big transition since the buy out by HTC but it has not been communicated well to employees. No more annual pay increases or performance bonuses. Required to use personal PTO for all business holidays. They will always put the concerns of the client over their own employees. None of these changes have been communicated to the employees well. Now with one of their biggest clients putting duration limits on staff aug consultants I imagine it will be a struggle in the upcoming months.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate policy changes better to your employees, especially when it impacts the pocket book.

    What a mess Boustridge and Piermarini made of a great company. Could not have destroyed it any faster if they had tried.

    Pros

    The people, the customers & the projects.

    Cons

    CEO has no clue how to successfully run a company.

    Advice to Management

    This goes to the board members as well: You should have worked harder to keep michael boustridge from ruining the company and disrupting 1000's of people careers and lives so he could benefit. Because with boustridge it is ALL about him.
    When michael boustridge came on the stock price was around $4.00 per share. In the 3 or so years that he was CEO the price dropped to $0.31 per share then the company was de-listed from the NYSE! Serious?
    The crazy thing is, the company ended up being sold for pennies on the dollar and he walked away with a really nice bonus.
    The even CRAZIER thing is, another company hired him to be their CEO/President right after all of this!
    If someone doesn't really care about how their company performs or doesn't care how their employees are treated then yes, michael boustridge is the guy for you. But if you do care about these things then laugh this idiot off and find someone who knows what they are doing.
