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

    Pros

    The office culture is positive and the compensation is more than fair. They will push you out your comfort zone and if you're like many of us, you'll see yourself work faster and produce better work when there is the "right" amount of pressure from above. Especially at the lower levels, having the Expectation Framework is invaluable to younger professionals looking to find their footing and truly grow. The firm is full of very intelligent people and you'll notice the difference when everyone on your team is capable of seeing the big picture and executing solutions every day.

    Cons

    The firm's model does not implement a traditional sales methodology, and rather focuses on building relationships. At times this can be a slower process, so some people have to be placed on the bench until new contract positions are acquired.

    Pros

    - Pariveda places a large emphasis on learning, growing and developing people to their fullest potential. There is a very transparent promotion process and and regular feedback is built into the culture. Leadership makes it a point to make sure there is interesting, cutting edge work and that the work provides everyone to grow. - On a weekly basis there are many examples of Pariveda living its values not just talking about them.

    Cons

    As with many consulting companies the experience can vary depending on the project.

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

    Pros

    I joined this company out of college, and used to think that all companies were like this - treated you like a real person and not a resource, gave you advice to help you advance your career, and made sure you were happy in what you were doing. In my time here, I've consistently been rejuvenated from learning that these things are not standard at other companies and that I'm truly set up to succeed and be a better version of myself. The people here listen to you and genuinely want to help you in whatever way they can. Management does a great job of making sure everyone is finding value in their work and finds their work challenging and stimulating, which is an especially tough thing in consulting where we don't always get to pick the work. The career path and growth is there - which makes it all the more rewarding to stick around. It all boils down to the fact that they treat you like family here, not because they have to but because they value people as people and not as a resource or a means to sell work.

    Cons

    We're getting bigger, and you can start to feel the growing pains. The firm is going through a big change right now, with opening our first international office and branching out in to new areas of consulting. While it is an exciting thing to be a part of, management feels stressed and has a lot on their plates because of the changes. They are heading in the same direction, but it seems like some people have different visions and everyone isn't used to having so many people to communicate to, so it sometimes feels like people are stepping on each other's toes or heading somewhere without a plan to get there.

    Pros

    - Well defined Expectations Framework enables employees to be active in their career development and growth - Values support collaboration with fellow employees instead of competition - Open pay scale and established specific salary at each level provides security in equality of pay between co-workers in the same role - Mentor program promotes connections outside of projects and a diverse point of opinions

    Cons

    - Promotions are considered only after a set period of time. There's no way to "speed up" the process. (However this does ensure enough time to become proficient in skills vs. at level)
