    I worked at Collabera full-time (More than a 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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    I worked at Collabera full-time

    Pros

    I found out that there is nothing good about them after joining. Had to leave even without finding a new job.

    Cons

    The upper management sucks. They are only concerned with numbers and reports. One hand does not know what the other hand is doing. Very heavy politics - there is a constant internal struggle within the management that they will throw you under the running train just to save their face. You will be set-up for failure right from day one. It's just work & work for them. You are EXPECTED to work at nights after leaving the office, you are EXPECTED to work weekends. Basically they just want you to work 24/7. They offer HORRIBLE benefits and their contribution is peanuts. Simple advise - stay away.

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

    Pros

    I have no clue about their placement services as I brought the opportunity to them so I would have an agency to work though. They pretty much leave you alone except for an occasional check in.

    Cons

    Poor language skills of staff. No direct deposit of expense reimbursement. Bad insurance. (You pay full cost too) No 401k match

    Advice to Management

    Get language training for your staff. Get better insurance. Since you don't contribute to it, it won't cost you anything. Direct deposit expenses! Between your delays and the bank 5 day hold on large checks, I am financing my travel expense for my client. This is another function that would have no over VERY low cost to you, but benefit your staff who travel for their jobs. More training opportunities would be helpful. I'm paying over $3,000 for training this year. If you had more group training packages it would likely half my costs and encourage me to stay with you when my current assignment is complete.
