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

    Pros

    Promotions are merit based and not competitive. There are some great people here. They really care about your growth, and will do all they can to help.

    Cons

    Projects aren't interesting from a business or technical standpoint. Employees are expected to conform to the "Pariveda way" even if it is counter to who they are as people. The culture is supposedly transparent, but there is a large information gap between consultants/associates and managers+. There's only one career track, which is great if you want to be a project manager, but not great if you want to do anything else....

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting so much time chasing buzzwords and go back to the mission of the company: developing people.

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

    Pros

    - Transparency - Mentorship (both formal and informal) - They focus on individual growth. It's amazing how much support everyone around you gives you. Your managers and management team members honestly want everyone to succeed. - You're not competing against others for promotions and are eligible for promotion every year. The review process is quite thorough so you're getting feedback on your strengths and areas...

    Cons

    - You don't get to pick the projects/clients that you're on, so if you're on a not so good one, it's difficult to move out of that position. At the end of the day, it's about influence and people. So you have to make sure you're socializing what you want to work on with the right people, but even then, it's largely dependent on who's available and what project needs to be staffed. - Similarly, because Pariveda operates...

    Advice to Management

    - Try to figure out a better way to work with people who aren't in the most optimal position to grow on their projects. - For the most part, it's been a really great experience, so keep listening to the people in the company and focusing on growing the individual.

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

    Pros

    Pariveda is what they claim to be. A mentor is assigned to you day 1. Their goal is to help you grow. And that they do. The management team spend a huge number of hours every quarter helping people to grow. No one here is left behind. The small team concept makes us fast and flexible. This is simply the best company that I have worked at.

    Cons

    Our clients can span the DFW area so there is sometimes a drive. While management tries to mitigate this, I found that audio books are a good way to fill the time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    They reward top performers and stay true to their core value of their people are their product. Definitely a great place to start and grow your career

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of cons that are company specific, you might end up on a project that is less exciting but that is more the nature of consulting

    Pros

    The client work is cutting edge and engaging. The company's focus is always people first and they deliver on their promise to make sure you are growing to your fullest as an individual. Great benefits with a competitive salary. Upper management is not a distant remote group of people. The transparency and familiarity amongst all levels of employees is refreshing and makes for a truly collaborative and enjoyable work...

    Cons

    Don't always have much say in what kind of projects you work on. No year-end bonus. Travel to some clients can be a bit taxing.

    Advice to Management

    The culture and size of the company / offices is what keeps the ship afloat. Be conscious of that as we push to aggressively grow the firm.

    Transparent promotion process, regular promotion opportunities, excellent challenges, great culture

    Cons

    Slightly lower industry salary at the lower levels, but a couple promotions later (and you're eligible annually) and the compensation becomes above-average.

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

    Pros

    There are several pros to working at Pariveda Solutions: - Respect for work-life balance - Full healthcare benefits - Emphasis on personal growth and learning - Transparent salary structure and advancement schedule - Clear expectations for roles - Senior leadership treats employees like humans - Frequently, the salary structure is revisited to implement cost-of-living adjustments - Built-in mentorship structure

    Cons

    Some downsides to working at Pariveda Solutions are: - Pariveda follows a "generalist" model, which is a pro and a con. While this allows for flexibility and variety in consultant work, it also means that a consultant goes "an inch deep and a mile wide", and can miss the tech stack best practices or advanced features of a tech stack. With a team of "inch-deep mile-wide" expertise, project codebases are at risk to become...

    Advice to Management

    Consider providing consultants with dedicated time to specialize in a technology they find interesting or for project ramp-up- this could foster higher quality project outcomes. Additionally, consider creating a separate technical track for consultants to follow as they grow.

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

    Pros

    Pariveda is all about your personal growth. They talk about it a lot during the recruiting process but they follow through on that talk once you join. The mentorship here is unlike any other company I have worked for. You get an assigned mentor on your first day but a lot of people pop up as informal mentors, which is really cool to have. Flexibility--- my manager is very understanding and tries to accommodate...

    Cons

    You are at the client site a lot. So unless your office is big on out of work hours activities, you can feel more of a client employee than Pariveda. The hours can be daunting but the 4 weeks of PTO (5 if you buy an extra week) really helps with that. Seems to be a pressure to cut cost. We get weekly emails from the COO letting us know if we are hitting numbers, exceeding or missing. Sometimes that can heighten the...

    Advice to Management

    Keep being transparent. Let us know when things aren't going right. If we aren't hitting the mark, maybe lets not spend so much money on meetings in Dallas or sending people to Vegas for FinFest... there's got to be cheaper ways to host FinFest.

    Pros

    Pariveda has developed an incredibly supportive system that strives to promote well-rounded individuals. They are true believers in 360 feedback and proactively addressing development points. As an employee at Pariveda, you can look forward to having a step by step guide to promotion and what is expected at each level.

    Cons

    Given the focus on feedback and growth, it can often feel like your strengths get overlooked.
