    Pros

    Exposure to high profile, high impact clients and projects. Work with upper echelon of consulting and technology pros. Pay and benefits are very competitive if you have the experience and perform to client standards.

    Cons

    Fast pace environment sometimes leads to difficult situations but management is always supportive. Hiring tends to lag behind demand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire ahead of demand. Continue to build team culture with more social events.

    Pros

    Maven Wave Partners is a great place to work if you like solving challenging problems with talented coworkers. No problem is too difficult to take on - the team works together to find innovative solutions that result tangible value for clients.

    Last but not least, Maven Wave likes to have fun. Whether its a quarterly meeting or a summer outing, everyone joins in on the festivities.

    Cons

    Maven Wave is a dynamic and fast-paced company. There is a lot of flexibility at the company, but that flexibility can occasionally lead to pockets of disorganization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep Maven Wave on the cutting edge of technology consulting.

    Pros

    First and foremost are the people. The teamwork and willingness to jump in and tackle challenges together is fantastic. It fosters a culture and camaraderie that builds a rewarding environment.

    Cons

    Demanding clients and the work itself can sometimes be challenging, but having a strong team to rely on helps you not only deliver for the client, but also enjoy the ride.

    I have been working at Maven Wave Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is decent, most assignments are interesting and long enough to get deeply involved. Pretty good benefits, too.

    Cons

    Management is pretty detached when you need them, and too attached when you don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While the quarterly get togethers are nice, you need to pay closer attention to your consultants when they request your attention. It often seems that they are not your primary focus.

    Pros

    Dynamic growth across multiple industries, top-notch, hard working colleagues, impeccable leadership, exceptional culture, emerging technologies, entrepreneurial environment, exciting career path, leadership opportunities, great clients - looking forward to going to work every day!

    Cons

    Not specifically a con, but would love to see global growth in the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work on sense of community by providing more communication to employees. Although our quarterly meetings bring a sense of connection, I think we need something more.

    Critical and complex projects, agile methods and teams that move fast, great talents around me from top to bottom, empowerment, equity opportunity.

    Keep growing. Look at both organic growth and acquisitions. Maintain strong diversity in the work force.

    Pros

    - Very open and transparent environment. Leadership is great and has a clear vision
    - Great innovative projects to work on
    - Opportunity to work with some of the brightest people around

    Cons

    I guess the con comes with the nature of the business, most of the employees are at client sites and you will probably see them only during the quarterly meetings. Would be great to have some events in between to bring more synergy between employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Maven Wave is a growing company with tons of opportunity. You can establish an exciting career path here. The best part of working here is the people. They are all smart, hard-working, and fun to work with. It is evident that they hire only the best of the best.

    Cons

    You will work hard, but also play hard - but I don't think that is really a con!

    I have been working at Maven Wave Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Open and honest communication, dynamic growth in several different industries, active in emerging technologies. The partners give a full accounting of business results and conditions at an all-employee meeting each quarter and employee input and questions are actively encouraged.

    Cons

    It's consulting and consulting can be rough. The company recruits the top 10% of talent so it can be difficult to get in. Further, the company is expanding quickly so it often needs very specific talent skills with new hires and this makes it harder still to be the right fit.
