Challenging work, great people and a rewarding environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

ProsFirst 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.

ConsDemanding 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Solid place to be a highly valuable consultant.

Consultant (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementWhile 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.

Great fast paced experience.

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

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

ConsI 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 Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

Strong growth in a great environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

ProsOpen 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.

ConsIt'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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
