    I have been working at Collaborative Solutions full-time


    Collaborative is an excellent place to work. People are fantastic and they continually go out of their way to help others. The company has won several awards over the past few years regarding their culture and its clear why - everyone from the exec team on down focuses both on employee satisfaction and customer satisfaction. At about 400 employees, it is very impressive that the culture remains very strong.


    Collaborative has a 'decent' 401(k) plan with matching, but they should look for other/better plans out there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on employee engagement and employee satisfaction. After all, its the people who make the difference. To all of my colleagues in the Workday ecosystem, this is THE place to work in this ecosystem.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Collaborative Solutions in April 2017.


    Invited by a recruiter for an initial interview within days of applying for role. Interviewer did not call at time schedule, nor did the recruiter alert me to the fact that she needed to reschedule. She did respond to my email asking for follow up 3 hours later and did reschedule the interview. For the interview she seemed knowledgeable regarding the role but she did acknowledged she did not know the company's training policies, specifically regarding payment of training should the employee leave the organization before a certain period of time. She promised to follow up with me regarding next steps by the end of the week. It is now 3 weeks later and I have not received follow up, nor has she responded to my 2 requests for follow up. Needless to say, the recruiter's lack of professionalism initially by missing the interview without notifying me carried through to her lack of follow up.
