    Pros

    Great people, challenging projects, knowledgeable management.

    Cons

    As with any consulting companies you might need to travel once in a while and not all projects will match your skills 100%.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing a great job!

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn new skills. Great benefits and education reimbursement. Wonderful team of people there. Everyone is willing to share knowledge and help others.

    Cons

    It is a smaller corporation so sometimes that means less structure. Home office is based out if Boston. Recently acquired by CGI. Still going through the merger. Not sure what the end result will be.

    Pros

    They invest in their employees and reward certification achievement with cash bonuses. You can even earn bonuses for coming to work every day and maintaining a "billable" status. Promotions are not difficult to achieve if you are motivated.

    Cons

    As a consulting firm, they maintain a small "bench" of employees. Losing a major client can lead to lay-offs, which is what happened in my case.

    Pros

    They really do hire smart and dedicated employees, and everyone definitely feels like part of the team.

    Cons

    As with any company, don't expect fairness. People that share the family name or work in certain departments have more 'perks' than the average worker.

    I have been working at Collaborative Consulting (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you give to Collaborative, they give back to you. They value the people who try and make a difference for the company, who are more than 9-to-5-ers.

    Cons

    As it is with any Consulting job, you're at the mercy of your client. So a sub-par client, means sub-par working conditions until the project is over.

    Advice to Management

    Collaborative can work on more open communication between executive and employees. But overall, they have done a great job of caring for the employees - not just the clients.
