      Pariveda truly cares about me as a person

      Pros

      I have always felt like Pariveda cares about my well being but this came to light even more during the pandemic. Throughout all the decisions that senior management made during Covid, I felt like the well being of the employee was always at the forefront of their minds. I feel very grateful to be at Pariveda during a time like this. In general, Pariveda is supportive and innovative. It operates with integrity. Mentorship is always provided and there is a clear career path laid out for you. I love working here and don't see myself leaving anytime soon.

      Cons

      If you don't want to be challenged to grow, this is not the environment for you. They will push you to improve and growth along their career path. They do it with plenty of guidance and support. If you are a technologist that loves to code and architect and has no interest in people or project management, this probably isn't the place for you. You will have to wear many hats as you progress in your career at Pariveda. You will always stay close to the technology but you have accountabilities around people/project/client management, as well.

      Focus on building people, space to make clients successful

      Sep 16, 2021 - Principal in Toronto, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Everyone at the firm is encouraged to help others grow. The fact that there are no individual bonuses changes the dynamic within different cohorts. It also makes people more focused on the work rather than showing their own abilities to leadership.

      Cons

      The fact that the firm is smaller compared to the other big consulting companies means there are less resources available and access to research is limited. Small price to pay for a very human firm.

      Pros

      Throughout the interview process and in my day to day, Pariveda’s commitment to its people is front and centre of everything! I really appreciate the focus on each person’s growth and development. Compared to my previous consulting employers, I have better work-life balance. Salary is very competitive compared to traditional big4, consulting firm. Toronto leadership team is experienced, driven and make it exciting to come to work everyday.

      Cons

      Interview process is lengthy but purpose-driven

      Misleading and Unethical Leadership

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great benefits and pay for back-office employees Generally kind and considerate colleagues

      Cons

      Leadership fails to "practice what they preach" Laid off front-line consultants during pandemic after asking them to take pay cuts so that they wouldn't have to be laid off. Leadership chose to keep back-office (e.g., office managers, on payroll and hire incoming college hires, while firing consultants who were doing billable work and bringing in revenue for the company. Many experienced employees leaving due to poor management decisions. Below market comp structure Misleading "Equity" plan in the form of an ESOP

      Pros

      - Lots of growth opportunities for personal and professional development. - Culture supports collaboration and learning instead of a "zero sum game" environment where colleagues compete against each other - Coworkers are smart, friendly, creative, and enthusiastic about bettering themselves and helping others - Clearly defined expectations and thorough, balanced performance reviews - Large raises accompany promotions - Fantastic mentorship and coaching - Great benefits - Decent work-life balance - Clients are close to home, little to no travel - High level of transparency from executive leadership - Pay is completely transparent. Salaries are set for each role, removing need for pay negotiation, and salary information is widely available within the firm - Emphasis on thought leadership and partnership with clients

      Cons

      - Average salary - Bit of an "up or out" mentality - Client work doesn't always align with career interests - Less mature intellectual property capture processes result in "reinventing the wheel" - Primary career path from developer to management isn't for everyone, opportunities outside of that path are limited and challenging

      Caring for the whole employee

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Ability to be exposed to many technologies, industries, and ways of working. Pariveda is passionate about pay equity and having a transparent pay scale for all employees. While the work-life balance can be sometimes hard to maintain, as is similar for the industry, Pariveda stresses on providing support for it's employees, including providing a variety of leave opportunities.

      Cons

      The parental leave policies, especially for those giving birth, are not expansive enough and rely on short term disability to provide an adequate amount of time off. Additionally, while the career development path for employees is very clear and transparent, there are no paths that you can specialize in. Pariveda holds tight to their "generalist model".
