    Pros

    Transparency High Pay and High Raises Growth People Quality of Life

    Cons

    On paper the career advancement is linear, which means that you'll have to grow in all areas of your career to advance. Personally so far this is great for me and my career. However if you're a hermit and you just want to code with as little human interaction as possible, this might not be for you (and consulting in general).

    Pros

    Over my 15 year career, at both industry and consultancies, at large fortune 500s as well as smaller firms - I have never experienced such a strong people-focused culture as I have at my first year at Pariveda. At the very core of the firm, Pariveda's primarily focus is developing their people through transparent expectations and cultivating a safe environments that supports a bottoms-up, servant leader, feedback culture. Complete paradigm shift from the financially incentivized/bonus driven, rack-and-stack performance evaluations of every company I have ever worked for. Sure developing talent was one of the areas my prior professional development evaluations were focused on but it was a small subset of a larger predominately financial focused evaluation. Prior to this role, at the end of the day you were incentivized to complete against your peers because you were racked and stack against your peers. I am incentivized to develop our people (including my peers), our clients and myself. We have open salaries and clear expectations for advancement. This is just one example of the extraordinary culture and vision that has made Pariveda such a fantastic change of pace!

    Cons

    If you are coming directly out of college, you will most likely immediately fit right in, potentially becoming blissfully ignorant about what other roles at other firms could have been. If you are like me, an experienced hire that has several years of experience, it will take some time to transition into this extraordinary environment; as you will need to wipe away the toxic cultures/behaviors of the past. Take it slow and embrace the much needed change.

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

    Pros

    Transparent and clear promotion paths. Focused on growth for employees as they move up the ladder into management positions. Deliberate to find cool tech and interesting projects for consultants to work on. Great work life balance and treat their employees very well.

    Cons

    Sometimes growth initiatives don't line up with personal goals/interests. Rigid promotion timeline.

    Pros

    Pariveda's mission is unique and is focused on helping employees self-actualize. It does this by having a fair and balanced review process, detailed and plentiful feedback from peers, upper management and others, having opportunities both at clients and internally for growth and having a strong internal mentorship program. The pay is competitive with other companies in the industry and the benefits are great especially fully paid medical premiums and matches for HSA and some FSAs. They hire great people and that is by far one of the best parts of working at Pariveda is getting to work with highly motivated people who are amazing at what they do.

    Cons

    Similar to other consulting companies the work is varied and so occasionally that can mean long hours and may not always be fully aligned with career path. Both of these are much shorter-lived than at 'typical' consulting companies. Plentiful feedback does take some getting used to at the beginning of your tenure but is extremely valuable to personal growth.

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

    Pros

    The focus on personal development is something that is incredibly unique and has no equal amongst previous companies I've worked in, consulted for / worked with, or employers of friends and family. The amount of transparency, empathy, and adherence to core values turn Pariveda from just a job to working with an extended family willing to support your needs and provide you with honest feedback to support your growth.

    Cons

    The rigor in the interview process, which is overall a great thing, prevents the overall ability to scale.

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

    Pros

    - Strong mentoring program - Focus and interest in Diversity & Inclusion initiatives - People-first always, not just when it's convenient - Progressive and innovative, but methodical and deliberate in approach - Defined career path and constant focus on growth and development areas - Employees have multiple avenues to connect with each other across the company

    Cons

    - Salaries are not competitive in some markets - Flextime is hard when working on a project and/or at a client site, but that's just the consulting industry and not specific to Pariveda.

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

    Pros

    The management team really cares about the employees. There's an emphasis on growth and feedback loops which makes for a great place for development. The company really puts their money where their mouth is, which makes them a really trustworthy employer. Obviously, there are times when you have to put in the hours, to meet a deadline, but they don't make you work crazy hours like most consulting firms. If there are demanding projects, the management team proactively works to mitigate the workload.

    Cons

    Some of the work at the company is not as interesting or exciting due to the nature of projects we win (creating internal tools, infrastructure, etc., but that might just be my opinion. If you like that sort of work that's awesome!)
