    I have been working at Miva full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Miva's workforce is fun and creative. Great culture and work environment. The annual Summer Party is something to look forward to. This is a good place to develop skills and you have the opportunity move up in the company should you do well.

    Cons

    There needs to be more communication and feedback through performance reviews to create a clearer career objective.

    Pros

    Great place for diving into eCommerce development. Plenty to learn from more experienced developers in a fun and laid back environment. Developers can get quite busy at times.

    Cons

    Projects can get quite boring at times with a lot of repetitive work. There's a strong emphasis on logging enough billable hours and sometimes projects seemed rushed because of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower developers to delve into newer technologies rather than using existing code samples or snippets.

    Pros

    Miva Merchant has a wonderful team, smart and transparent leadership, and a real love web and entrepreneurship. From day one, the team was very warm and encouraging, making it a great place to learn and grow as a developer.

    Leadership is very "in touch" and excited about both the products and growing team.

    Cons

    Learning about the many popular Miva Merchant modules can be challenging for developers coming from other platforms.
