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

    Pros

    - Transparent Payscale - Excellent Benefits - Great Mentorship Program - Career path planning - Culture of Learning and Openness - ESOP Pariveda Solutions is a company I see myself staying for a very long time. I can genuinely say I care about and enjoy working with the people here. Everyone is very committed to growing themselves and each other. One thing I want to stress is the ESOP. Over time, the employees are becoming the owners of this company. Pariveda is not held captive by public shareholders pushing quarterly profits. It is the employees who have a vested interest in seeing the company succeed. It is how the company's culture will continue to be maintained for many decades to come.

    Cons

    - The 401k match is a little weak - A little cult-like atmosphere, but I personally love the Kool-aid - Sometimes you have to commute, but its comes with consulting

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

    Pros

    Working at Pariveda has been one of the best experiences I have had in my career and it just keeps getting better 1) Growth - Every step of the way, Pariveda guides you on ways you can improve your career to the next level. They provide technical and non-technical guidance so you are able to develop both skill sets. 2) Technological Diversity - Most of the projects that I have been on have been completely different technology stacks. They have been stacks that I have known nothing about. This always keeps the work interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    1) Review/Mentor Process Sustainability - As the Houston market gets bigger, it will be a challenge to sustain the current mentor and review process, but management has already started taking proactive steps to make the process more and more sustainable.

    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. Sometimes you have to travel every week for months on end because you get put on projects in other offices. There is a lot of big talk from management about new exciting things that are happening, but very little substance to actually back it up.

    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 of growth pretty consistently. - Everyone is paid the same at each level and you know exactly what everyone is getting paid int the company. - When hiring, they focus on your problem solving ability rather than your specific technical knowledge, therefore, expanding their reach to individuals who may not have majored in computer science. - At the end of the day, it's what you make of it and there are a ton of people in the company that are there to support you.

    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 on a project -to-project basis, every single person has such a widely different experience at the company. You could be on one or seven project in the same time period. It all just depends and has a lot of luck factored into it.

    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.

    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

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

    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 environment. Very defined career path so you know exactly what you need to do to get promoted, and how long it will take for you to get to a certain level.

    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.
