    Pros

    Great people to work with.
    A lot of senior level employees.
    Great monthly lunches with recruiter.
    Bi-monthly lunches with account partner in MN.

    Cons

    Bankruptcy is a shame, still no bonus as promised in our initial offer letter. There is no structure in who we report too, we should be in practice groups reporting to a practice leader.

    Advice to Management

    Reorg the company into practice groups; QA, BA, PM, software dev or architects, Etc.. Get rid of CEO. He can't even wear a suit and tie on town halls.

    I have been working at Ciber (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, loyal employees, flexible work environment/work schedules
    People were happy to work here until recent events that just unfolded.

    Cons

    Executives, period. CEO successfully ran a 40 year-old, respected company into the ground in 2 and a half years. Executives are more concerned with paying themselves out and "trying" to make stock holders happy than fixing the company. Tried to mask issues and act like nothing was going on, but everyone expected the bankruptcy because of the incompetent CEO.

    Advice to Management

    No advice at this point. I am disappointed that, in almost a year since I have been here, the company went from relatively-healthy with potential to turn things around to bankrupt. Executives did not try to improve culture, drive engagement, or communicate with anyone. Those should have been your focuses.

    Don't borrow money you can't pay back. Lessons learned- don't run a 43 year company into bankruptcy and foreign ownership

    Pros

    Some great people, really. They say that people make the job, and you know it can be true when you find the right mix.

    Cons

    Sadly, management vision was completely missing, betting on the wrong priorities and not able to deliver. That in turn has generated the Chapter 11 filing just these days.

    Advice to Management

    Hoping that Capgemini will do a good job with cleaning up the top, and enabling the bottom.
