Ciber is poorly managed from the top and financially hurting
Customer Service Manager (CSM) (Current Employee) – Kirkland, WA – October 9, 2016
Because of continued bad decisions from top management Ciber is off-loading as many divisions as it can possibly sell for quick cash. They continue to have difficulty making payroll and they refuse to pay promised bonuses. Senior management is so far out of touch with what it takes to truly manage the daily operations, build new business and close sales that they keep missing on many opportunities they've been given.
Local senior management keeps trying, but corporate ties their hands
Consultant - T-Mobile (Current Employee) – Bothell, WA – September 24, 2016
The only thing they care about is getting people placed. They put you there, they drop you and then the only communications you get from leadership is multiple reminders each week to submit your timesheet on time so everyone gets paid. They can't even be bothered with scheduling those reminders so they are accurate for the timezone in which you are working. The reminders are set to make life easier for the processors who couldn't care less about the consultant. That same attitude about the consultants is pervasive throughout the entire organization. I have yet to meet anyone there who truly cares about the people. They don't give raises and there is always some reason not to give the full bonus, even when the consultant has done everything they committed to deliver for their bonus.

System Administrator (Current Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – August 1, 2016
I am contracted through Ciber to PennDOT. I have been at PennDOT for almost 5 years. I have been allowed and encouraged to push my skill level and knowledge base almost as far as I want to pursue. It is a very satisfying work environment. My immediate supervisor allows me great freedom to hone my skills and learn new technologies as they become available.
Parts Management Analyst - Contract to Ford (Current Employee) – Contract to Ford – July 27, 2016
I love the job and the people that I work with. Benefits are not the best and Unlimited PTO is not Unlimited! There are not clear cut boundries between Ford and Ciber that does become a problem at times.

Consultant Help Desk Technician (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – July 8, 2016
As a contractor for ciber day to day work was great as we were a small group contracted to local government. Any interaction with the actual ciber corporate was painful and unproductive. Everything with the company is middle manager and VP purgatory. The company is not willing to pay decent wages and has an extremely difficult time hiring employees who can pass a background check. Every time our client had an issue to address with ciber they were either outright lied to, mislead or never addressed.
Principal SAP SuccessFactors Project Manager (Former Employee) – anywhere, USA – March 24, 2016
Company seems to be in constant turmoil and instability. They don't promote from within, preferring to bring people from outside. In 40 months, I went through 5 vice-presidents. No loyalty to their staff and a low tolerance for the "Bench" -- once you are not billing as a consultant, your employment becomes questionable. On the HR side, they still claw back 30% of your accumulated PTO time (purportedly to compensate for any"sick" time off) and their diminutive contribution to employees' 401 (K) plans require almost 6 years of service to be vested. Ridiculous in today's work culture.
good people to work with, Most of the consultants that I met were First Class
Help Desk Analyst (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – February 24, 2016
IT helpdesk call center. Answering calls from customers from various companies that Ciber had contracts with. Helped customers with password reset issues and software error messages and issues. Call out to service desk analysts and issue tickets to help customers on their computer issues. I've learned a lot of new programs and ways to resolve computer and software issues. The management was fun to work with. They were always trying to make it a fun work environment. The co-workers were a great bunch of people to work with.
