    I have been working at Collaborative Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    (Not sure how formatting works) // Freedom to branch out and make your career whatever it is you wish. Collaborative sill support you with any new area you want to learn, new certifications, cross functional training, and personal goals. With proper planning and workload alignment, the sky is the limit for what Collaborative can offer you. // Industry experience unmatched by any other partner firm. Collaborative...

    Cons

    I think Collaborative should listen more to the concerns and suggestions of consultants who have actively "grown up" in the Workday ecosystem. I believe their ideas are more innovative and "fresh" compared to some entrenched folks in Mid/Upper Management who have come over from legacy systems (SAP/Oracle/PeopleSoft/etc.). These entrenched folks have never implemented Workday, so some of their decisions and thought processes...

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the feedback from your employees. There will undoubtedly be bumps in the road with massive growth, but the ability to pivot and rectify situations is what matters. I feel Collaborative excels at that.

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

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO (make sure you request it far enough in advance), competitive pay, generous bonus plan, comprehensive benefits, paid training and certifications, work from home, travel, flexible for the most part. As a consultant you have to manage your time well and know when to say no to work that you cannot handle. CS is very responsive and seems to genuinely care more about having you as an employee than overbooking...

    Cons

    No cons about CS, but you need to be organized and manage your time well. The work/life balance is great if you can do those two things.

    Advice to Management

    It seems like you all really take into consideration what everyone has to say and try to make everyone feel heard and included. Keep it up!

    Pros

    Collaborative environment, they care about each other, lots of opportunities to grow on the delivery side of the organization.

    Cons

    It can be hard to find work life balance. Not much thought on career paths for internal employees. It’s getting harder to maintain a small culture as the organization scales.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on the culture it’s a great place to be! Don’t forget about your internal employees who help the organization operate so well.

    I worked at Collaborative Solutions full-time for less 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 a year

    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.
