I have been working at Collabera as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Great gigs - when you can get one. Payroll on time and accurate. Your personal representative in HR makes all the difference in how the relationship develops. Make no mistake, this is a body shop - your talent is worthless to them when you are not on a project.

Cons

Ridiculously difficult until you get "wired" in to the process. Long downtime between assignments. Lack of understanding within company of how to pitch consultants to the client: if you have mad skills in A but are fully qualified in B, C and D with better than average competence in E, you will get responses to A.

Advice to Management

Remember the talent you hire is often senior to you. Show some respect to your talent and negotiate business-to-business.

    I worked at Collabera as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The good thing was they do your taxes. They did direct deposit on time;
    Manager was Nice;

    Cons

    a lot of things to file.
    The length of the contract usually goes like 3 months, 6 months, 9 months or 1 year maximum.
    There is a 100 days rule, which means once you finish a project, you have to take a 100 days break.

    I worked at Collabera full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A very hands off employer. Did not hear much from them.

    Cons

    Was layed off just before Thanksgiving. No warning. I was called and told that my contract ended and today was the last day.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little me proactive and give some advance notice or contract temination
