    I have been working at Ciber full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The business has been through a lot of recent change simply because, for the previous 20 years nothing changed. Ciber modernises itself as well as its clients. Ciber is now in a much stronger place to grow in a fast paced industry.

    Cons

    If your dynamic enough to cope with progress, you won't have any concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating Completeness required on some GTM's Marketing needs better execution

    I worked at Ciber full-time

    Pros

    Good people to work with and offered flexibility to work from home. They offered a good package and had an impressive client list.

    Cons

    Poor management (from US and hired by US) who could not be trusted. Poor decision making throughout the company in its latter stages led to it's downfall. They had a promising product in my area, but failed to make the right decisions to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    The company was sold in bits, which was the best outcome. The UK arm was bought out by the core UK management team, generally the better of the bunch. Advice: when you make promises, stick to them.

      Have the right people stay and don't double back on promises, they use good people without rewarding them.

      I worked at Ciber

      Pros

      A company that has some very good people working for it

      Cons

      An appalling record for not paying contractors on time. I am still waiting for my last invoice payment which is now nearly 1 month overdue

      Advice to Management

      Recognize the fact that your contractors are an essential part of the success of the company and treat them the way you are treated. You demand payment form customers on time and get very upset when they delay.

        I have been working at Ciber full-time for more than 8 years

        Pros

        Not sure there are any pros anymore. Maybe a merger will get rid of current executive team so that's got to be a good thing

        Cons

        CEO, CFO and executive management do not have a clue. Beavis and Butt-Head could have done a better job than these clowns. Only option now is for company to merge with a competitor but at least that will get rid of the clowns People at the grassroots are good and middle management is stuck not able to make decisions.

        Advice to Management

        Executive team are unable to listen to or take advice so anything said here is a waste of bytes
