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

    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.

    The people at Collaborative are smart and hardworking. There are a lot of opportunities to work at great clients on big or small projects.

    As with any consulting firm, you can't always pick to work on projects that are exactly what you want to do.

    I have been working at Collaborative Consulting

    Pros

    Extremely smart, dedicated people who enjoy challenging work. There are a lot of opportunities for career advancement both through client work and within Collaborative via internal initiatives. In addition to above average consultants, Collaborative is aligning with certain key industries which should help keep interesting work flowing. This alignment also presents opportunities for consultants to stretch and... contribute by working on these initiatives. Collaborative is one of the most client-focused consulting companies to which I have ever been exposed. Collaborative management strives hard to 'do the right thing' in all situations to which I have been exposed. It is not always popular but the intent is for the good of the company, client and employee.

    Cons

    Internal processes are very typical of a small-medium sized company. Processes are not always clearly defined and sometimes change without notice. HR and others are very responsive to answer questions though. They are working to improve but there is work to be done. Staffing process is not always transparent to the consultant. Some of this is by necessity but it could be better. Again, they are working to... improve this but......

    Advice to Management

    Continue working to improve consultant's connection to the company through quarterly meetings, team events, etc. It is easy for folks to feel disconnected out at a client site and small team outings can go a long way. It doesn't have to be the full company at every event but a team outing can go a long way towards bringing people together and helping them feel more a part of something bigger.
