    I have been working at Collabera as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    good benefits as a contractor

    Cons

    They only work with project managers and engineer/IT people. If you ask them to post you for a creative job, you're sunk. They only see you as your last position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is difficult enough to find a job, this company doesn't have any wishes to do anything more than they have to in placing you for your next job.

    Pros

    Decent Perks, Vacation, Sick Days, Great People and values, encouraging Management staff Bonuses were good for morale and production.

    Cons

    Medical is terrible, basic training is not very personalized to the job, no job security, while they were understanding about the demands of a family, the work-load was insanely large for my salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on training, simplify processes, better communication and instruction from Managers.

    Pros

    Will work with you on your resume for a project if called on for interview with them

    Cons

    If you work for them that makes you a contractor therefore no benefits.

    I worked at Collabera as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Uh, they send a paycheck?

    Cons

    Employees and (especially) recruiters cannot speak or write in coherent English. Didn't interact with a single exception. I'd say it's quite something to behold, but it's become sadly typical in the IT "consulting" industry. Is anyone there actually bright? It's impossible to tell. Collabera's US operation is based in North Jersey, but I never spoke to anyone with even decent English skills in their office. Gee, no employable, literate Americans in the Morristown area, Collabera? What a joke.

    I worked as a contractor for IBM via Collabera. For some reason the IBM HR folks push both Collabera, and another clueless offshore firm called Infinite Computer Solutions over the (two) American companies on IBM's Approved Vendor list. Three guesses why. If you have a chance to work as an IBM contractor, pick one of the American firms instead - you won't regret it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eventually, parasites suck their hosts dry. Perhaps you can use your gargantuan profits to purchase a fleet of food trucks at that point.

    Pros

    Good team members to work with.

    Cons

    Company did not give new solutions team long enough to build an entirely new line of business. Gave less than year and a half to show immediate revenue even though they wanted to offer services beyond traditional staffing.

    Pros

    On boarding was efficient. Work is interesting. Staff was very friendly and encouraging.

    Cons

    Now that offer has changed, reducing hourly rate, waiting for it to happen again. Never had this experience with other consultancy positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adhere to the spirit of the offer letter.
