    I have been working at Colibrium full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The organization is made up of some of the most passionate and dedicated professionals that I've ever worked with and its a joy to be part of the same team. The culture is ultra collaborative, and the current leadership team listens to and focuses on employee engagement. The company went through a period of transition a few years ago and has come out stronger and with a better vision. The environment is fast paced,...

    Cons

    You can end up with a lot on your plate, and have to remember to come up for air, especially during open enrollment season.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and keep infusing the team with bright, and passionate industry professionals.

    Pros

    Company-paid benefits, free snacks, & flex hours.

    Cons

    The theme of the majority of the less-than ideal reviews remain today.

    Advice to Management

    The echoes from reviews past still apply today. Personal politics & refusal to listen to employees’ suggestions for improvement are the two main issues holding this company back from advancement. Adopt the belief of supporting one another over cliquiness, & Colibrium will soar above the rest.

    I have been working at Colibrium full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The culture of the Colibrium office is relaxed and fun which makes things easier during high-stress times. The company is flexible and understanding and led by an approachable team with an open door policy. The leaders at Colibrium stand up for their teams and will go to bat for what is right.

    Cons

    Still a smaller company and a bit resource constrained which can result in needing "all hands on deck" often, and having to share team members more than some would like. I have seen significant improvement in this area in the past 6 months as we have been hiring and ramping up our teams.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue down the path we are on. The transparency is very helpful.

    I have been working at Colibrium full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Management is engaged and wanting to work hard to move things in a positive direction. The new (within last year) leadership has quickly identified pain point and worked to fix them. Work life balance has improved dramatically in the last year and has stabilized so that most people are working pretty normal work weeks but we still deliver on time.

    Cons

    The only real con is that all of this is new and that there is a bit of a learning curve still for the whole company. The new way of operating (pretty much pure agile) is starting to help a lot but is also something that a lot of us are still learning. We are getting better each sprint and likely will continue to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you stay on the same page and stay the course - things are moving in the right direction so don't lose focus.

    I have been working at Colibrium full-time

    Pros

    Most of the problems I see in other posts here are outdated. Over the past 6-12 months Colibrium has been bringing in new management that knows how to run a company of this size and in this space. With their leadership the company is already starting to see benefits of their experience. This will continue to increase and I think this will end up being a truly world class place to work.

    Cons

    The chaos of the past isn't quite in the past. There is still a lot going on and a lot of things that have to be completed before some of the positive changes being planned can be executed. There is a ton of work to do right now but the current chaos and pain is expected to be relatively short lived.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course in terms of improvements you are trying to make - these will make a difference but only if they actually happen. There also needs to be a single voice in the direction throughout this to ensure that the entire management team is all working towards the same goal.

    The people. The team is committed to achieving organizational goals with an intense dedication to getting the job done. I can't say enough about the people at Colibrium. The recent new hires have been outstanding, as well as the folks that have been with the company for many years - Colibrium is making big moves very soon! Support from parent company, HGS. Colibrium has a deep commitment from HGS to become successful...

    Cons

    As some of the other reviewers have shared, there are some reminaining changes that are in the final stages of being implemented. The issues of the past are almost all gone and I'm sure they will be shortly after this review is posted. Every organization has it's challenges and Colibrium is committed to addressing theirs.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, keep innovating, and keep creating solutions that make your clients more and more efficient.

    I worked at Colibrium full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company is responsive and is making an effort to course correct in areas where they have faltered in the past. Great benefits. Great atmosphere and location. Their solution is very well thought out and high quality.

    Cons

    Management needs to be more transparent.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to be willing to invest in the time and resources needed to meet goals in a way that avoids having to constantly put out fires. Great progress has already been made in these areas and that is a good thing.

    I worked at Colibrium full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice office space in the heart of Buckhead. Casual dress code. Plenty of free desks available now that so many people have quit.

    Cons

    Long history of unhappy clients. An alarming percentage of the staff has voluntarily left in the space of about 9 months. Colibrium was purchased by a large company but they left the original management in charge, which was a mistake. No longer offers 401k matching, don't let the list of perks fool you.

    Advice to Management

    Step aside and let HGS replace you with a group of managers with vision and the ability to execute that vision. Many times you've announced a change in the company's vision and never followed through on any of them.

    It's unfortunate that you feel the way you do about Colibrium, however, hopefully you have found a position in which you are better suited and happier. Colibrium is working very hard to raise the bar and when a company does this, there is oftentimes a tendency for those who aren't ...

    I worked at Colibrium

    Pros

    Nice office space and free snacks

    Cons

    Colibrium seemed to be heading in the right direction until, all of a sudden, things were spiraling out of control. Clients were angry, devs and BAs were working 70-100 hours a week to get work done (for many months), and management seemed to just be sticking bandaids on everything instead of actually fixing the problem. Bonuses were promised and never received. Incredibly low and non-competitive pay. No career advancement....

    Pros

    Great location close to bars so you can drink your anger and depression away.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities, no company vision, no transparency, deception, boring work, micromanagement, the list is endless. The 10% bonus potential sounds good until you realize the company hasn't turned a profit in years. If you want a glimpse into life at Colibrium, read the condescending responses to recent reviews.

    Advice to Management

    People aren't fleeing the company because they are uncomfortable with change; they are leaving because there never is change. Leadership keeps doing the same things over and over and expects different results. Insinuating that 2/3 of the company left because they couldn't keep up with 'Colibrium raising the bar' is laughable. Even the people who stuck around for 5+ years and two layoffs are out the door. If things...
