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

Pros

Great gigs - when you can get one. Payroll on time and accurate. Your personal representative in HR makes all the difference in how the relationship develops. Make no mistake, this is a body shop - your talent is worthless to them when you are not on a project.

Cons

Ridiculously difficult until you get "wired" in to the process. Long downtime between assignments. Lack of understanding within company of how to pitch consultants to the client: if you have mad skills in A but are fully qualified in B, C and D with better than average competence in E, you will get responses to A.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember the talent you hire is often senior to you. Show some respect to your talent and negotiate business-to-business.

    Pros

    It's good for fresh college graduate.

    Cons

    Very fussy. Insurance premium is like $200 a month. Outrageous...Don't expect any benefit from this company. I and my wife were planning for a baby but insurance for both of us was estimated to be $700 a month so we thought of changing a company soon and than plan for the baby.. Yes, $700...Isn't it crazy?

    Super low pay/rates, no increments, no future.

    Pros

    They have 2 plans for consultants, join as salaried or hourly.
    Salaried - some benefits, 8 paid holiday, 5 personal days and 2 week paid vacation and medical at $200 - low benefits per month
    Hourly - No benefits, u pay full price for any benefits.
    so if they are getting 55-60 from client they offer 30 - 32 as hourly or 28 (60K) salaried + benefits which works out to the same cost.

    Cons

    If u r on a visa and join as employee, at every project end, you will get a termination letter by registered post, so u r basically out of status and are being blackmailed to take up the next project at the location and rate they want you to. Moving assistance is 800-1000 but depends on the account head you are moving with. 70% of their recruiters are based in India using VOIP phones, so they have no idea about the working culture in US.
