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

    Pros

    Solid effort on the part of leadership to move Ciber toward solvency and predictable performance. More discipline has been added over the last year to manage performance. Holds staff accountable to hit goals and deliver.

    Cons

    Management style if very old school - motivational speeches are based on damnation and threats. Senior leaders are generally invisible to the staff outside of Denver. If you don't work in Denver you don't exist except when the numbers roll up - if you don't hit your number you're gone.

    Advice to Management

    The good-old-boy leadership style (not DaveP) is old school. Get rid of the 'old-school' senior leaders and dead weight VPs (there ain't much strategic business development going on from where I sit). Need to hire senior leaders who know who to motivate and communicate.

    I have been working at Ciber full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A dynamic company trying to create a unique identity.
    Corporate HQ in Denver, a great city without the high cost of the NYC pressure cooker.
    Base pay is at the upper end of the industry - comparable with the Big 5.

    Cons

    Offerings are similar to IBM but without the backing of a mature large enterprise.
    No firm strategic direction.
    A tendency to hang on to legacy offerings to build an impressive list of technology and services regardless of their value or company's ability to execute.
    Upper management churn. I reported to 6 different Sr. VPs in 5 years. None of them could find a strategy with both hands.
    Company has a tarnished image. Search terms: Ciber Voting Machines / Ciber PA Turnpike Pay to Play

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what you want to be when you grow up.
    Invest in ethics training.
