    I have been working at Pariveda Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work-life balance can't be beat. I enjoy the people I have been able to work with and have formed genuine relationships with my coworkers. Management and the company as a whole is extremely transparent.

    Cons

    While the pay is competitive, it is definitely not at the top of the industry.

    I have been working at Pariveda Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Completely transparent pay scale. I know what every single employee makes, including the CEO. Client and project assignments based on your growth opportunities. Open and transparent culture for giving and receiving feedback. Leaders who focus on the holistic view of the person. Excellent benefits - fully covered health care, HSA contribution, 401k match, 6 week parental leave (for both parents), phone plan, generous PTO. I feel cared for. Maybe even spoiled.

    Cons

    Too techy sometimes. Software developers who just want to code, rather than problem solvers who want to meet business or user needs. Consulting is hard. Clients have high expectations, and they don't always give you the information, resources, and support you need to meet those expectations. Clients are frustrating. Your day-to-day is working in a culture (the client's) that is not what you signed up for and with people that might not be as dedicated or experienced. Pariveda is not very racially diverse, though getting better. Not very many female middle managers either. Not enough bench time - off one client Friday and on to another Monday. It gives me whiplash.

    Pros

    Transparent and clear promotion paths. Focused on growth for employees as they move up the ladder into management positions. Deliberate to find cool tech and interesting projects for consultants to work on. Great work life balance and treat their employees very well.

    Cons

    Sometimes growth initiatives don't line up with personal goals/interests. Rigid promotion timeline.

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

    Pros

    If you find yourself in a rut working with the same technology day in and day out you might give software consulting a try. Pariveda has a range of projects that span from web design and cloud computing to machine learning and app development. Another thing that i've really enjoyed about the company is their emphasis on thought leadership. They encourage employees of all levels to join internal initiatives that can have an impact on the company's culture and future. There are also a lot of opportunities for connecting on a personal level through out the company. We have a diverse employee base with various opportunities to share what you're passionate about (rock climbing club, dnd groups, running club, minecraft server, baking club, book club, & more).

    Cons

    You definitely get what you are willing to put in. If you're looking for a 8-5 without other commitments you can definitely do that here, but because of the company culture you won't feel like you're getting the same experience as those around you without building a few relationships.

    Pros

    1) Growing people to their fullest potential is truly the primary focus of this company. The quality of the systems in place and the time spent by management to help people grow has been astounding to me after coming from a large consulting firm. 2) The work is project based, and the projects are both interesting and challenging. Management makes a point out of only targeting projects that will be engaging for developers. These projects have a definitive endpoint where the work is handed off, and allows the developer to work on something else. 3) Awesome culture - very fun and open, with regular events for various groups. 4) Competitive salary, benefits, and plenty of time off!

    Cons

    Constantly pushing for your own growth and excellence can be stressful. Aside from the usual consulting cons (e.g., occasionally working long hours to ensure a project's success, or feeling isolated on your client team), this is the one thing I come back to. You have to want to grow professionally and be willing to put out the extra effort that entails, or you'll fall behind your peers.

    Pros

    Pariveda is a great place to work to continue learning throughout your entire career. Some of the best things: - Transparent pay scale - Consistent and non-competitive review and promotion process - Clear growth path (Consultant -> Associate -> Manager -> Principal -> Vice President) - Formal mentor process to support and assist growth - Great people in a team-focused, collaborative environment! - Attention paid to individual well-being and office/company culture to support work-life balance and sustainable staffing - Emphasis on placing employees where they will be able to grow, not simply where they will provide the greatest profit for the firm - Transparency around firm financial metrics - Individuals at all levels encouraged to take initiative to engage with the office or company — assist with recruiting, lead technical or non-technical learning opportunities, etc. - Community service hours required at each level, and office teams dedicated to creating group service opportunities - Expectations Framework that describes the behaviors and expectations at every level across a variety of categories, giving a clear idea of what is needed to move to each level

    Cons

    This company is very white, and very male. There are support networks created company-wide for groups that fall outside of those categories, and the company touts a commitment to diversity, but that hasn't changed the fact that if you are not white and male, there will be times where you will be the "only" in a room. Pariveda is very demanding, in that they expect you to put continuous time and effort into working on yourself. This is not an environment where you can just coast. The review and promotion processes are intense, and designed to identify growth areas in which the company can support you. You will be put in positions and situations that stretch your abilities in order to help you grow them, which can be very stressful — Pariveda's goal is to keep you right on the learning edge of stress, where you're never quite comfortable, but you're never too far out of your depth. The career path at Pariveda is designed to build well-rounded professionals. It leads from heavily-technical roles up through high-level management — if your goal is to stay purely technical, and not move to account and client management, then this path may not be for you.

    I have been working at Pariveda Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pariveda's business model focuses on using talent to drive profit, and backs that up by investing heavily in the professional development of each employee. The company takes a very serious approach to mentorship and reviews, with the executive team taking several days every term to go over every performance review and make sure everyone is getting the feedback and direction they need to succeed. Since consulting can be so high pace, this extra care taken by higher ups really helps to prevent employees from falling into a rut and focusing entirely on the day to day, especially early in a career.

    Cons

    Because Pariveda is so focused on growth, you are expected to continue your professional development on your own time in addition to work hours. This means reading books, doing personal projects, and lending your time to teammates when needed. This is less a con and more a warning that you should be ready to put in a lot of work on yourself if you want to be successful at Pariveda.

    Pros

    Pariveda is a great place to work if you are looking to grow and develop yourself professionally. As an employee here, your career growth, goals and development feels like the number 1 priority to those around you. You have a mentor that helps guide you through your career and you are challenged to grow in many ways. There are endless opportunities to grow. Additionally -- Pay and benefits are good, flexibility and autonomy is great, opportunities for learning are plentiful and the people are smart, supportive and warm.

    Cons

    If you are the type of person who doesn't want to be challenged to grow, it won't be the right environment for you.
