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

    Pros

    Pariveda is all about developing and taking care of its most important asset: its people. A mentor from day 1, access to numerous training and development courses, and clear career expectations are all just parts of how Pariveda invests in its people. The company also has a very supportive feedback culture and growth mentality. Benefits for employees are excellent and include ESOP and 401k matching. Leadership knows improvements...

    Cons

    Consultant work can be fast-paced and it can be easy to get bogged down to the point where work-life balance is threatened. Billable hours (40+) plus commute and Pariveda activities can add up fast!

    I have been working at Pariveda Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Overall, the in-office culture is great. The employees really care about each other and the work that they do.

    Cons

    The company likes to pride itself in transparent, "equal" pay, however, the pay scales are not equal at all. Some markets are seriously underpaid compared to others. The worst part about this is that management doesn't seem to care to address this issue, even though it is frequently brought up as a concern by employees, who are told that living in higher cost-of-living markets is a "choice". This feels like a slap in...

    Advice to Management

    Revisit how the COLA is calculated. Consider the turnover rate and difficulty to recruit for some offices. Talk to and acknowledge the feelings of the Fins in the aforementioned markets.

    I have been working at Pariveda Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    While it can vary from project to project, overall work-life balance is very reasonable (40 hours/wk billable, 5-10 nonbillable depending on seniority and role). People live up to mission statement more often than not (help people develop to their fullest potential) - his happens through mentoring, active management, plenty of opportunities to learn and grow. An individual project/client may only help you grow in a...

    Cons

    Pay seems to be higher than market averages in Dallas, Houston, etc. and on the low end for markets like San Francisco and New York - makes attracting talented people more difficult, which limits office growth. You have little control over the projects you're on and the type of work you're doing can vary a lot from client to client - good if you like learning new things and growing in new ways, not conducive to becoming...

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

    Pros

    I don't believe any company is perfect, but what Pariveda has done throughout my years here as been to continuously seek out those areas that need improvement and act upon. An example was the training of Managers. It used to be an area of frustration, but the company recognized the gap and decided to invested in building new manager specific training such as small team leadership, project management school and a nature...

    Cons

    You have to be comfortable with ambiguity. This is not a company that explicitly tells you what to do, instead relying on helping you get to the right answers then simply giving it to you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking to get better

    Pros

    The list of pros for Pariveda seems to be endless. I continue to be amazed by the culture, growth opportunities, and emphasis on their people. Every employee has others in mind and is more than willing to support others. Pariveda provides the resources for successful careers with certifications, a variety of different projects/technologies, and career advisors to help you through each cohort. There is a clear path for...

    There is a strong emphasis on personal growth, demonstrated through a transparent pay scale and promotion path and regular feedback. The culture is very collaborative with a focus on helping each other to succeed.

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

    Pros

    I am celebrating 7 years and can honestly say that I have grown more at Pariveda than anywhere else in my career. I have worked in 2 of our offices and with a number of Fins over my career. It is rare to come across someone who isn't exceptional and doesn't want to lend a hand when needed. I've seen the firm go through a lot of changes and heard a lot of concerns regarding those changes, but 7 years later and after doubling...

    Cons

    Consulting is not for everyone and commutes to client sites are not always great.

    Advice to Management

    Scaling is a buzzword within the firm right now. Continue focusing on how to scale our culture that makes Pariveda so unique.

    Very structured process and growth opportunities. Mentor from day one.

    Cons

    Still developing growth opportunities for non-technical employees, but this being defined now and should be in place within the year.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push who we are as a company looking for opportunities to reach our 50 year goal.

    Pros

    Pariveda gives you so many opportunities to grow yourself technically, personally, and in the business space. You have a say in how you want to develop in your career. You also get a personal mentor that gives you support throughout that development. Pariveda follows through on mentorship. Around the company, career development and mentor responsibilities are the top priority. What's more, the people at Pariveda have...

    Cons

    The track for growth can prove to be too fast for some. Pariveda uses a framework that lays out a path for growth in many different areas. Everyone grows in different ways and at different speeds, so it may not fit someone's development. It can be tough for some employees who compare themselves to others in growth; not that other companies do not deal with this challenge as well.

    Advice to Management

    Expectations around speed of growth can be better messaged to the employees personally and to those around them. We can continue to improve our mentorship in that area and continue to grow the culture of feedback. I fully expect Pariveda to keep improving and keep caring about its people.
