    Pros

    Money is good people are good. Nice place. Very helpful people before they place you and you become an employee of this company.

    Cons

    Promises everything before you start even in emails deliver nothing afterwards. Always manipulates and brings technicalities on what they promised. Before joining this company watch movies like wishmaster, wisher you will get an idea how you meant something before you joined and how it will mean something else after you joined with technicalities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any advice I guess. Just try to preserve integrity on what you say and what you do.

    I worked at Collabera full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Really nice people that work hard for their employees.
    They give off a very professional and positive vibe.
    They give gifts to boost morale and to say thank you.

    Cons

    1. The difficult part is that I have a really hard time understanding any of the people I've talked to over the phone. It took me 4 months after I was told I had the job to actually start.
    2. I gave them what I thought were great 5 star reviews... shortly after, they stopped being so helpful. I was told when I called in to check if they had any more work. " We have a lot of new people...You will have to find work, we cannot help you" I wish I was lying... I'm not sure what happened.
    3. I feel that they like to keep people on contract so that they can keep business. Really don't see how a person would want to stay under contract work.
    4. They are competing with one another to get new referrals. they seemed more concern on whether or not the client was hiring any new people so they have places to put people. I just realized they have medium number of clients, with an extremely high volume of applicants. I even asked once what types of jobs they have. From my understanding, if you are in the mid-level, then you may have a hard time getting work through them. Especially if you aren't IT or a manager.
    5. My rep took more vacations than any person I've ever seen. Owners of most businesses never took this many vacations... She was never around.
    5. Insurance policy is terrible...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please improve on the things I listed above. From what I'm reading in other reviews, most of the concerns. are the same.

    Pros

    You are put an environment that facilitates growth and gives a very apparent career path you can take. If you care about your job and perform at or above standards you are recognized with salary increases and awards. You have a manager who is in direct contact with you and always there for any questions you may have.

    Cons

    Its a blessing and a curse to have analytic s that are time intensive to log.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Collabera full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been with this organization for over 7 years now. Collabera as a company is very flexible and open for being a $500M+ company. There are a lot of opportunities to grow personally as well as professionally. The leadership has great vision of where they want to take the company and there are huge opportunities for internal growth.

    Cons

    I have yet to come across something that you would not find in other growing companies. In fact, I have seen that any valid feedback and suggestions are quickly implemented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kudos to the senior management for keeping up the focus and driving the company to greater heights. Continue to be the number 1 in all you guys do.
