Mission: Our mission is to grow individuals to their fullest potentials. We develop, manage and apply talent for the benefit of clients, in partnership and for profit.
More #WomenInTech gathered together in one place than every before at Grace Hopper Celebration 2018 in Houston and Pariveda was there. Take an inside look at what our Fins had to say about their experience attending their first GHC - http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQrMW.

In 2003, we asked one simple question. Can a technology consulting firm be successful by focusing first on growing the individual to their fullest potential? We believed that through an unwavering commitment to developing people we could create a different kind of company. We created Pariveda. At our very core, we desire to help the individual grow through learning, coaching and giving to others to achieve their fullest potential. The individual is defined as our people, our clients, recruits, alumni, and our communities.
It is through this belief in helping the individual, counter to industry norms, we have grown revenue each and every year since 2003. We believe in providing for the security and well-being of our people and their families through an ESOP where stock is earned from the very first day of work, 401k match, paid sabbaticals and 100% paid medical. We employ a cohort model for compensation in order to foster collaboration across our employees. All employees at a certain level are paid the same so that no individual focuses on their own credit but rather the success of the collective firm.
We leverage a proprietary Expectations Framework (EF) to guide the career development of our employees. The EF maps our expectations across 5 core dimensions (Effectiveness, Business of IT, Relationships, Leadership, and Others First). This creates a clear framework for coaching our employees to achieve their maximum potential through rigorous development.
We believe in the efficiency of small teams working together to solve complex problems leveraging strategy and technology. We believe in growing deep relationships with our people, our clients and others in our networks. Our people develop trusted relationships with clients because of the value we provide them. Value realized is evidenced through a client repeat/referral rate of 85%. We are unwavering in our commitment to excellence and growing individuals to their fullest potential.
While we expect our solutions to change over time with technology waves, our product is consistent. Our product is our people.
We develop our people who are high-potential consultants into solution architects to solve global business problems. Our solution architects, because of their growth experiences using a variety of frameworks and technologies, create highly-effective solutions to our clients’ most difficult problems.
We are passionate about creating interesting solutions to the unknown/unmet needs of our clients and grow, both our people and our clients, through those experiences. We deliver strategic services and technology solutions. Pariveda's technology solutions include custom application development in areas such as strategy, mobility, cloud computing, data, portals and collaboration, CRM, custom software, enterprise integration and user experience.
We are focused on delivering a return-on-investment quickly. Agile solution delivery is woven into the fabric of Pariveda’s culture, and our project approach is based heavily on Agile delivery to create value sooner. Key Agile tenets include: business/IT collaboration, continuous integration, automation, prioritization, minimum viable product (MVP), among others.
The Business of IT® is not only our trademark, but it is the mantra we strive to bring to our clients as we assist them in running their IT organizations like services companies inside their corporate enterprises. From the way clients define their internal strategy, to the way they manage and deploy their resources and deliver value to their organization, our proven methodology enhances the value of IT within each client organization.

I have been working at Pariveda Solutions full-time
There are many good things about Pariveda: we have a transparent pay-scale, an ESOP, a clearly defined career path, and a large emphasis on mentorship that will help you feel supported in your career journey.
Additionally, with Pariveda being so mission-driven it can leave you feeling inspired to find what your personal passion is and integrate it into your professional life. This further boosts engagement and career growth which I personally value most.
If you are looking to grow and be stretched in ways that you haven't before, this is the place to do that. There are many opportunities to have an impact on both your local market and the company as a whole regardless of your position.
With growth comes discomfort so not everyone will thrive under the strong feedback culture we have (although this was a personal growth area for myself that I was able to overcome at Pariveda). Additionally, your career is in your hands. While there is support and development opportunities along the way, it's ultimately up to you to take the initiative and implement changes as you grow. The commitment to growth and learning may not be for everyone.
Advice to Management
Keep being open and eliciting feedback at all levels of the organization. We will never be perfect but if we continue practicing our core values we will adapt over time and survive the challenges that lay ahead.
I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pariveda Solutions (Austin, TX).
I met them at a university career fair, had a genuine conversation with the recruiter. They reached out a few weeks later for on campus interview. I was invited to a dinner before the interview where I met a lot of the company VPs. Interviewed the next day on campus, interview was all behavioral.
There was no negotiation, they sent me an offer letter for the internship and I accepted.
