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

    Pros

    Pariveda is a young company that actually follows it's values. The leadership of Pariveda are all very focused on growing talent. As a person young in my career I see my managers coaching us to develop us into effective IT consultants and leaders. They seem to want to see us achieve the same success they have rather than fear that we will replace them. Very active reviews and semi-annual reviews help make individual...

    Cons

    The structured growth model with consultant, associate, etc levels makes it difficult to 'sky rocket' to the top. If you are hired as a consultant, you have to hit every level between before you become a manager. Some people I have talked to about this scowl at the rigid structure and assumed rules it implies. I couldn't decide if this was a pro or a con. As an ambitious person it seems oppressive, but it also prevents...

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

    Pros

    The company's mission is about talent development. Employees are treated as mature adults and are trusted. Company's desire is on local model (although you may still travel). Great networking opportunities. Exposure to other responsibilities (e.g. learning sales as a developer). Transparent leadership.

    Cons

    Typically requires extra time commitment beyond the 40 hour work week. Work/Life balance can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    People are more likely to do something and be happy to do it when they feel a sense of ownership about it. Forcing colloquiums and fin book was more demotivating than motivating to some. I think the intention was great and sincere, but it was lost in the execution.

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

    Pros

    The people you work with are all talented and fast learners, so you won't spend a lot of your time repeating the same explanations. Additionally, you won't be competing with your peers for a promotion, so they will be completely willing to help you out. Frequent reviews mean that you are always well informed of how you are doing an what you can do to help get promoted. The company values networking and training...

    Cons

    You are expected to manage your workload to a reasonable level. It is easy to over-commit to all of the extra caricular events and side projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the tough hiring standards. Pariveda can only grow the way it needs to if we only bring in A players.

    I have been working at Pariveda Solutions

    Pros

    It is a very good culture to work at. Much easier to make a big impact and be an important player in a young company than just a cog in a machine. You will be challenged which I think is a very big pro. You will also be surrounded by very smart people. This is not a place to sit back and coast. Everyone makes a meaningful contribution and you can always count on your team.

    Cons

    This job is not for everyone. Sometimes it's a lot of work, long hours, and after hours activities. There is a good work-life balance but you are expected to do a lot of extra curricular activities like community service, and outside learning. Some people think it is a pro and some a con depending on who you are and what kind of commitment you can make. Some commit more that others and that's not frowned upon at all.

    I have been working at Pariveda Solutions

    Pros

    Pariveda hires the best, uses them, grows them, and gives them ample opportunity to objectively advance through their career at an accelerated pace. Every company promises this, but doesn't deliver; most companies advance those who play politics well (golf with the right people, etc.) even though their skills may be lacking for the level they are compensated at (think of the technical managers you've seen that aren't...

    Cons

    If you have personal ambitions and a drive to improve, it's a great place to work, but if you are looking for someplace to "coast on home" until the end of your career, it may not be the best for you; they hire the best people that are looking to be the best at what they do. Be prepared for change; Pariveda is a small, but growing, company, so systems, policies and procedures are subject to change as the firm grows...

    Advice to Management

    Let me preface this by saying that the leadership team is currently doing a good job of this, but they should always remember to keep the values, concerning the quality and advancement of their employees, as the primary objectives even in the face of future market change and global expansion.

    I have been working at Pariveda Solutions

    Pros

    Pariveda is true to the company mission and there is a strong focus on talent development that you will not find at other consulting firms. The company does not make decisions based on what will make money in the short term if that decision does not make sense with the long term goals. There is more training here than at other firms. Employees are given consistent feedback as well. The best reason to work at Pariveda...

    Cons

    For some individuals, the extra training and networking requirements can seem like more work than working in industry, but the people hired here tend to be overachievers anyway. Because we are so committed to our talent, it is tougher for us to hire and grow as quickly as some other firms.

    Pros

    Great culture developed by the joint effort of all the smart people Pariveda hires. It is a firm that has shown growth through some tough times due to its risk management and talent. Focus is high on the development of the people and retainment. Since the company's goal is to become employee owned in the near future, the growth of company directly impacts the financial growth of the employees which provides added motivation...

    Cons

    Since its a small company, there is still a lot that needs to be done with internal training. Fortunately company supports employees for outside training and development.

    Advice to Management

    Pariveda is a great company that has great culture and great people. Suggestion is to maintain them at any cost going forward irrespective of the hardship company faces on the whole.
