    I worked at Collabera as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The good thing was they do your taxes. They did direct deposit on time;
    Manager was Nice;

    Cons

    a lot of things to file.
    The length of the contract usually goes like 3 months, 6 months, 9 months or 1 year maximum.
    There is a 100 days rule, which means once you finish a project, you have to take a 100 days break.

    Pros

    Share great opportunities in my field.
    Give excellent insight about the job they would like you to consider.
    Excellent referral program.

    Cons

    Pay rates aren't the best.
    Follow up with the contractors isn't the best. Say one thing and little follow through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a contractor it's hard to offer advise to the agency.

    I worked at Collabera full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They are motivated to get you roles. They have good follow up with HR.

    Cons

    They often take a long time to deal with HR issues and equipment problems. The company was eager to reduce salaries with new role renewals. I never got a raise moving from one position to the next, even though I had great reviews.

    I have been working at Collabera

    Pros

    Get your foot in the door somewhere that you want to try as a potential long-term fit. As far ascontracting companies go, this one has a great on-boarding process.

    Cons

    It is unfortunate these days that third party staff augmentation companies, like Collabera, are making up to 40% of what you should be bringing home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If I were going to speak to leadership at Collabera I would encourage them to lower their profit margins slightly to keep employees and build a niche.
