My experience with VIVA USA was excellent from start to finish.

Senior Technical Writer - Consultant (Former Employee)
Northbrook, IL

I worked at VIVA USA as a contractor for less than a year

ProsFrom the outset, the professional staff at VIVA USA were exceptionally focused on business results. Starting with the recruiter, Kuga Nathan, through the on-boarding and pre-screening process with various internal admins, to the initial meeting with the client when Varuna Singh met me there in the lobby for the hand-off and start of the project, including weekly communications and throughout the entirety of the contract, the personnel at VIVA USA always displayed "best in class" attributes and more.

ConsAlthough I encountered no difficulties or challenges in working with VIVA USA, I did encourage the firm to add paid time off, holidays, etc. to its offerings.

Great place to learn & grow

Account/Client Coordinator (Current Employee)
Rolling Meadows, IL

I have been working at VIVA USA full-time for more than a year

ProsI've been working with Viva as a Account/Client Coordinator for about 2 years now. During my tenure with VIVA I learned multiple things which helped me in growing professionally. Great thing about VIVA is they identify every individual's potential and give him/her opportunity where an employee can excel, this gives satisfaction to the employees and motivates them. Viva's management is employee friendly and can be reached anytime.

I see many employees who have been with VIVA for more than a decade now, this speaks for the "employee satisfaction"

I enjoy what I'm doing at VIVA and I strongly believe VIVA will be a ladder for my professional growth

ConsI understand every company has its Cons & Pros. At Viva i dint see much Cons, if at all there is one management rectifies it immediately

Advice to Senior ManagementAt VIVA every employee have the liberty to reach out to management for any advice/ suggestion. so

I had a decent relationship

Help Desk Analyst (Former Employee)
Milwaukee, WI

I worked at VIVA USA as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsThe company was responsive to the concerns I had with regards to the job placement into which I had been sent.

ConsMy initial payment compensation was low. After waiting for a year and asking to have my hourly pay be brought in line with others in my team doing the same work I was given a token raise which still did not make it equitable.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people in the field and look at making pay equitable

Best MWBE for IT Consulting and Recruitment

Systems Analyst Programmer/Consultant (Current Employee)
Rolling Meadows, IL

I have been working at VIVA USA full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThis company is best in its class, high performers are immediately visible to company stakeholders and higher management and get lot of appreciation. Most of employees working at VIVA are very satisfied and are with this company from 10+ years. Not aware of any layoffs in past 7 years. There is no micro-management, people are expected to meet the reasonable goals. Free coffee and snacks seem like a good gesture from company. Compensated well.

ConsEven employees performing average will be fine but some very low performers specially those not giving time to job duties will find themselves not appreciated and will complain afterwards.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis company already has one of the best person as CEO and higher and middle management is already very nice and hardworking.

Highly rewarding work experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
