    I worked at Collabera

    Pros

    Highest rate of any contractor I contacted.
    Access to 401k and insurance.

    Cons

    they call you a lot and have awkward conversations about how your assignment is going and act surprised when you tell them it's going well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    leave me alone and let me work.

    i was offered the contracted position by AT&T and i had to find which contractor to use. collabera responded first and offered the best rate. after the first day talking to them it all went down hill. they took forever to do my background check and delayed my start date, couldn't answer benefit and payroll questions that i had and were just plain annoying.

    I have been working at Collabera full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a multicultural company which allows us to connect with all client or candidates on multiple levels. The office environment is laid back and there is room in the company for growth

    Cons

    I wish as a recruiter who has never done this before that they provided more training on how to recruit. When I was sent to new jersey for a week long training sessions. we only did 3 role plays. Most of it was spent sitting on a computer doing virtual learning. A lot of it was over the company its self too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My office is great, they really encourage me to grow and come up with new approaches. They also make themselves very approachable so I am not afraid to come to them if I have any questions

    BEWARE! Collabera Indian Tech Recruiter SCAM ALERT

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Collabera

    Pros

    Be glad you don't give them your SS#.

    Cons

    Collabera trolls the Internet for tech resumes and uses resumes to benefit others. DO NOT TRUST THESE SCAMMERS. No legitimate phone numbers, no one answers at their "headquarters" (website phone number). Once they have your resume, they will not contact you again. It's URGENT that they get your resume, even though they "got your resume from online". They are giving all Indians a bad name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What comes around goes around.

    I worked at Collabera

    Pros

    Have good client base.
    People "seem" to be professional

    Cons

    They start your process by saying "there is no bond or agreement". But your offer letter has got so many terms and conditions :
    1. You cannot leave company withing 18 - 24 months of employment else you pay penalty. In US there is nothing like a bond but you know people do not want to go to court.
    2. You have to give them 4 weeks notice or more else you pay penalty. In US the normal notice period is 1-2 weeks !!!
    3. You pay will be 60K or around that which is going to be stuck at same level for more than a year.
    4. Medical benefits are awful !

    This is almost equivalent to Bonded Labour : " A person becomes a bonded labourer when their labour is demanded as a means of repayment for a loan. The person is then tricked or trapped into working for very little or no pay. The value of their work becomes invariably greater than the original sum of money borrowed."

    You know a consultant in New York with 8+ years of experience can get offer of 100K after employers cut. Imagine you being placed there and stuck at 60K or so.

    So avoid them even if they do not charge Sponsorship fee.

    Not sure why DOL (Department of Labour) has not taken any action seeing their offer letter/appointment letter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be reasonable with your terms and conditions. People who come are software engineers not slaves.

    The pay was fairly good, after they got their cut,

    Cons

    Management was never there, they did not care about their employees the clients we worked for treated their employees like absolute crap and they didn't care about anything except for getting more people so they could make more money
