    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.

    Great autonomy

    Work from home

    Cons

    My goodness!!! Lack of communication, Lack of communication, Lack of communication!
    We dealt with it when we were with Ciber and now with HTC! So sad. I'm not sure that they realize how this affects employees. . .or maybe they do and just don't care. I will go with the latter explanation. STAY AWAY if you don't want the frustration.
    New HTC vacation policy is not good.

    Pros

    Able to work remotely if feasible.

    Cons

    Previous CEO (before HTC purchase) drove company into the ground by spending lavishly. From what I understand HTC's Mr. Reddy is the exact opposite.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to understand non-commodity business solutions

    Pros

    Our local office was excellent and tried to maintain good communication and mutual respect with consultants. When our office was acquired, our management was very good, we maintained a bench and could retain and personally endorse our consultants.

    Cons

    No increases for years.
    Very poor communication.
    No trust -- upper management would make decisions to the detriment of consultants and attempt to spin it to make it seem attractive to us.
    No job security / no "bench"
    Annual reviews were worthless.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your best assets (consultants) well in order to succeed.
