    Ciber really shows that they are invested in the Consultants. They strive for open communication, and keep us informed with changes that are happening.

    Could offer more benefit options.

    I have been working at Ciber full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've worked for Ciber for nine years and started as a developer and climbed the ladder into management. Ciber was there every step of the way to coach and mentor me, and provided me the opportunity to get the support I needed to be successful.

    The new leadership team at the executive level is setting an example for executing against commitments and holding everyone including themselves accountable and that behavior is trickling down through to every level of management within the organization to where the consultants on the ground are feeling the commitment they are making to their success.

    Cons

    Ciber is located in a competitive market in Seattle and the local leadership team needs to find ways to find career mobility easier to achieve internally than externally.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to demonstrate accountability and commitment not only to the customer but to the consultants.

    Supportive in their efforts regarding family leave of absence. The ciber U is great.

    The performance process takes too long and very inconsistent.

    Pros

    Very unobtrusive management
    Reasonably responsive to most questions

    Cons

    Very tight with money
    High turnover with the account managers so communication from the field can be tough

    Advice to Management

    If you want quality people to stick around and continue to make the company money, then please be prepared to be a bit more competitive in what you pay them.

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

    Pros

    I have heard through experienced sources that Ciber pays employees higher than it's peers do. So far, this theory seems reasonable.

    Cons

    Internal systems (time keeping, client billing, employee reviews, etc) are a joke. They are unnecessarily buggy and difficult to navigate. Senior management is totally 100% disconnected from the 'typical' worker.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul of internal systems and internal processes. Make it easy for us.

    Pros

    Benefits were ok and some of the co-workers were great.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about their employees. Just looking to fill a spot on a project. Not a good company if you are looking for longevity in your career. HR Department is terrible. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees

    I worked at Ciber as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are no pros to mention.

    Cons

    Shifty -- I could never get a straight answer from my Ciber reps or managers. Ciber headquarters constantly flooded my work In Box with irrelevant press releases, newsletters and streams of strange or even threatening messages that had nothing to do with me. But the worst was the 30% cut they siphoned off my pay BEYOND their fee. They were released as a preferred vendor for my client company and I was freed to move to another agency in the same job. What a difference! Less administration, no random crap, holiday pay, annual bonuses, and a LOT more money coming to me though my rate did not change. Ciber is not to be trusted.
