    I worked at Collaborative Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They use Workday for pretty much everything, and it's a great system. Submitting time and expense reports was a breeze.

    Cons

    I worked here for a little over a month. I was let go because the course I was required to take to start my role was full. I was locked out of my laptop remotely and fired via email. There was nothing I could have done.

    Advice to Management

    If you keep treating people with no compassion, someday you will fail.

    I have been working at Collaborative Solutions full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I have been working at Collorative for a few years now. I enjoy what I do and the opporunity to work with new clients and ample projects each year.

    Cons

    I just find it quite ironic that the company emphasizes the benefits of our culture to new hires, yet we are lacking in diversity. And I have always wondered why. Are minority candidates not applying to jobs at the company?

    Advice to Management

    I really feel the company can do better at hiring black or other minority candidates. Perhaps attending diversity career fairs or launching a diversity recruitment campaign.

    I worked at Collaborative Solutions full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Work from home and flexibility

    Cons

    As many other reviewers stated, the marketing team here is outstanding as they know how to brand the company and all they focus on are these awards. The reality is very different from what you are sold. It is a poorly run company and honestly, that is in the hands of the executive team. Aside from the COO and the SVP of Consulting, none of the other executives would last a day on a Fortune 500 exec team. A strategic...

    Advice to Management

    With only a few hundred employees and an exec team that is the size of those in much larger organizations, you need to expect more from the exec team/VPs and what they can do & create in order to lead the company effectively while making Collaborative truly a great place to work. Take care of your employees and be consistent with your practices and policies.

    Cons

    This company will win you over with their “culture” and act like they care about their people but it’s all a lie. After months of interviewing and finally receiving an offer, I left a lucrative career to be a part of what I thought was an amazing company. I was so wrong. I was recommended for the position and with promises of internal support and a high pass rate for the required certification, I wasn’t worried. For...
