    Pros

    Maven Wave Partners is a full service consulting company that appeals to an exciting market. The clients are often high growth clients looking for the latest and greatest ways of differentiating themselves in the marketplace. Maven Wave provides services to clients in the form of change management, information life-cycle management, brand/design, custom application development (onshore/offshore), Google apps deployment, and cloud hosting solutions.

    Maven Wave’s employees are a refreshing blend of experienced team members that are progressive, dynamic, and engaging. The organization is incredibly appealing to self-starters and individuals who optimize and develop their skills through execution. The organization puts a heavy focus on agility.

    The organizational management philosophy is to empower leadership at all levels which presents accelerated career development opportunities. Maven Wave works with clients as a strategic partner as opposed to a short-term sales opportunity by placing an importance on long-term strategy over quick wins, resulting in more appealing client engagements for its employees.

    The partners are incredibly strategic. They have a wealth of experience and are open and transparent with the company’s strategy, financials, and business model. They hold excellent quarterly meetings and encourage employees to work hard and play hard during an exciting era of year over year growth.

    Cons

    Individuals who are comfortable in highly structured work environments with fixed objectives / career paths may have difficulty adapting to a self-organizing, non-hierarchical environment. The organization has a thin layer of middle management, therefore many job functions are handled by those who also have revenue driven responsibilities. These responsibilities are great for learning and development, but balancing client-facing responsibilities with internal job functions has proven to be difficult at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I agree that the quarterly meetings are great, but more frequent partner-originated communications across the different practices would be nice. Communications that promote cross-practice awareness of Maven Wave’s strategy/goals would help align the different delivery teams.
