Pros: allowed to make up time so you don't have to take vacation every time, the benefit package is actually about on par with what private companies are offering, they just added a new benefit plan that provides even better coverage, get 3 weeks of vacation although it's earned on a per month basis, so if you leave before the end of the month, you don't get any pro-rated amount
Cons: no longevity since we are consultants, poor onboarding process, vacation is accrued monthly (must work the entire month or get nothing), their ciberspace website in general is not user friendly
I'm on a contract for Ciber. They won a large contract and there is a large team of Ciber consultants onsite, including a Ciber FT leader. Overall, she does a good job as a leader, does not micro-manage and tries to provide the backing where needed but she is spread WAYYY too thin for what is trying to be accomplished at the client site.
Ciber has done a good job of hiring qualified / high caliber associates on our team. The back office Ciber people are good to work with and when I had an issue with something being paid on my benefits, the Ciber HR person worked hard to resolve it.
Their onboarding process is very poor however. Their website is VERY clunky, not user friendly, HUGE numbers of steps to complete that is very time consuming. There should be at least a couple of days allowed on Ciber time to complete all their required reading material, quizzes and such. Even trying to complete them on your own is challenging because of all the multiple issues with their website. Supposedly that is being revamped, but not certain.
