    I have been working at Miva full-time

    Pros

    The staff was friendly and welcoming, which matches the company's culture. They were interested in getting to know me personally, and not just focusing on what I could offer them. The whole process took roughly a week and I was kept in the loop of what to expect going forward.

    Cons

    The whole process was extremely positive so there is nothing bad I can say about it.

    I have been working at Miva full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is relaxed and the people are friendly. No one here is ever afraid to ask questions which really helps with professional growth. The office is brand new and upper management is dead set on making the company the best place to work in San Diego so there are a lot of perks that come with that. For example, a keg that's open on Friday afternoons, soft drink machine that's open all day, a video game area complete with x box one and other consoles, free food and parties at least once a month

    Cons

    Pay is much lower than San Diego average for most if not all positions. If you're looking to be paid what you're worth, I'd consider looking elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    In office perks are wonderful and make the monotony of the daily grind much easier to endure. However, you should consider more competitive salaries for your employees.

    Pros

    The team is pretty great. Co-workers are friendly. Keg on Fridays if you're into that.

    Cons

    Upper management holds the purse strings tightly.

    Advice to Management

    Place more value in your employees.

    I have been working at Miva full-time

    Pros

    The company is growing steadily and they provide some nice day-to-day perks. I love working here am very grateful for a position that fits my skills and gets me excited to come into work. The hours are flexible and the atmosphere very relaxed and fun.

    Cons

    The location could be better. When trying to attract top talent, bland office parks in the suburbs generally don't compete well with an urban setting when people like to be able to walk to a plethora of lunch choices, or the pub after work. It would also give people the option of living close to work and being able to walk, bike or have better transport options. Vacation time is a bit on the low side for a tech company.

    Advice to Management

    Discuss more vacation and holiday time off policies to compete with comparable firms. 3-4 weeks to start would be good.

    Pros

    Great company environment and great leadership. Miva truly cares about its employees and it's clients. The company is seeing amazing growth and has a ton of opportunity. Offers a new modern office, company events, amazing benefits, and they are flexible and understanding of their employees needs. I enjoy going to work each day and love the people I work with.

    Cons

    There are some unique problems that pop up with growing so fast. Nothing I would consider a Con though, just a challenge.

    Pros

    Some software companies are like families and some have a great community of followers. Miva has both. The staff and management make coming to work very enjoyable. Each and every member of the web development team brings great insight into ways to improve the product.

    Cons

    In the past, there have been some issues with communication from upper management. However, these have been greatly improved in the past few months.
