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.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Collaborative Solutions in October 2017.
I received a quick response to my online application from the recruiter to set up a phone screening. The recruiter was forth coming about the company, the position and the hiring process. She tactfully brought up the compensation structure and the difference between my much higher previous salary and what they might offer. I was left with the impression that they would potentially be able to address some of the gap if the hiring manager thought my experience warranted being above their range. The recruiter passed my application to the hiring team and they declined to interview me - an outcome I anticipated. The entire process was conducted promptly and professionally.
