    I worked at Ciber full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are lucky one may get a good talented team.
    Some recruiters are actually very nice.

    Cons

    Sales and business development talent is dismal. Essentially when it acquired number of smaller consulting units years ago to call themselves CIBER the recruiters from acquired companies named themselves client partners and business development managers... and so you can expect what happened from there on.

    Biggest issue has been grossly ineffective and vision less executive. Mid level management runs with small groups essentially protecting each other... can not get out of their own way!

    Real talent gets frustrated and leaves.

    Advice to Management

    It is sad to see what is happening.

    Pros

    The best thing about working at Ciber are the wonderful, caring rank and file employees. They are smart, dedicated and hopeful for change in leadership.

    Cons

    As a former 16 year employee working in the corporate office, it has been shocking to witness the incompetent and dishonest board of directors including the ceo.

    Advice to Management

    Turn over the board, including the CEO. I've never met such a greedy, incompetent and dishonest bunch of fools.

    I have been working at Ciber full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Met some great people on different projects.

    Cons

    No raises, bonuses are suppose to be part of your compensation, but once the executives take their piece there is little to nothing left for anyone else.
    European businesses and exchange rates are bringing us losses every quarter.
    Very little if any communication to employees.
    Paychecks have been delayed.
    Can not count on expenses being reimbursed in a timely manner. Still haven't heard when we will get the deposit for expenses that show a paid date of Feb 1, 2017.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Board of Directors. Sell Europe and replace the executives.

    Discourage backstabbing
    Better training

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

    Pros

    Ford Holidays...you follow the shut down schedule

    Cons

    Ford Holidays - you have to use your PTO so the only time you can really schedule time off is during shut down.
    Training is inconsistent as are the policies

    Advice to Management

    Too many cooks in the kitchen. Nothing is consistent. Policies are not made clear. No room for growth
