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


    Collaborative have made some great changes in their business over the past year that has helped them become stronger in their industry - aligning managers and leadership with their strengths, focusing on inefficiencies and how to fix them, driving stronger alliances and improving processes to drive continuous growth. Culture is fantastic and a good piece of working here - this is true across all offices and even for those consultants that are in a remote location. Managers and leadership care about their employees and consistently reach out to check in to make sure everyone is doing well. Business is booming! 401K match is great for this size company.


    Costs of benefits could be improved although not sure that is based upon what they can do versus the healthcare industry increasing their costs to employers.

    Advice to Management

    I know business is challenging, but keep your head up high - you have put some solid leaders in place that have a vision for the future and are bringing us down a good path. I look forward to being here for years to come as I advance in my career.
