    I worked at Ciber full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. HTC has really changed that for CIBER.

    Cons

    Very poor followup from HR support staff and redeployment staff. Really need to work on communication skills in these areas. However, other support personnel have been great. Very little sense of being part of something until recently.

    Advice to Management

    Communication! I've worked with 4/5 different companies similar to CIBER and they are significantly behind everyone else in this area. If the analysts aren't given the information, they can't react intelligently.

    Pros

    Great team of people to work with! We were making great progress growing and opening new accounts. The company had been in business for 43 years with many employees being with the company for 10+ years.

    Cons

    Company Filed Chapter 11 and was sold to HTC Global. Ciber was acquired by HTC with the intent of increasing revenues to $1B. Shortly after the sale they laid off several sales people and Regional Vice Presidents. Nearly all of the Ciber management is gone and the transition did not go very smoothly.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified management and sales people that can grow the company. Leverage the sales and recruiting teams by keeping them motivated and compensating accordingly.

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

    Pros

    Recuiter lunches with cohorts
    Nice people to work with

    Cons

    No management interactions, feel like a sweatshop instead of consulting. Was promised a yearly bonus last year, never received. Probably due to the bankruptcy. I've seen people on the bench only make it a week then pull the "I am sorry we won't be trying to place you anymore" and cut the strings.

    Advice to Management

    Interact more. Be honest with people about bench time.
