Pariveda Solutions – Why Work For Us?


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.

Pariveda Solutions, Inc. is a leading management consulting firm specializing in improving our clients’ performance. We are complex problem solvers who provide strategic consulting services and custom application development solutions for mobility, cloud computing, data, portals and collaboration, CRM, custom software, enterprise integration and user experience needs of our clients.

Pariveda solves the complex problems of clients ranging from Fortune 100 to Global 2000 to startup companies and spanning multiple industries. Our people develop trusted relationships with clients based on the value we provide them. Clients partner with us for our high-caliber combination of technology and business problem-solving experts, our high-quality delivery consistency and our focus on building lifetime relationships.   

Our Vice Presidents are responsible for both the engagement pursuit and engagement delivery ensuring continuity and accountability from the sale through solution delivery. Over 85% of our business is through referrals and additional work at clients, and many of our clients engage us on initiatives year-over-year.

We know and understand digital transformation. As a national full-service IT and business consultancy, we have delivered strategies and developed custom technology solutions for many customer-facing, B2C applications that span both online and mobile domains. We understand the key business drivers and value proposition for investment in digital and are equipped to help guide you here.

    I have been working at Pariveda Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Pariveda's mission is centered around developing the employee, and they hold up their end of the bargain
    - Work-life balance is valued. Working too much will genuinely draw concern from higher ups who will seek to fix it
    - Pariveda only seeks the projects it sees as best for its employees' growth. There is an obvious push for cutting-edge and exciting projects
    - A transparent cohort/pay scale encourages a collaborative workplace where everyone is working to improve everyone. Promotions are completely in your own hands if you work to meet clearly defined expectations

    Cons

    - Pariveda is all about pushing you to be the best you can be. This isn't always easy or the most comfortable. If you want to coast and still be promoted, this might not be a good fit
    - The nature of consulting means travel and projects can vary widely at any point in time. This can be a pro, but also a con

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Pariveda Solutions in October 2017.

    Interview

    The entire process was bizarre, messy, and extremely vague. The entirety was 4 months with a long pause for an internal to decide interest. Weeks would go by and I would mentally write them off but be lured back in through depiction of a culture that was supposedly A+ with smart, like-minded, creative types. Ended up flying out to meet after 5 separate Skypes & calls. Manager promised me a prep call before boarding to meet but had every excuse to not get on the phone with me after I continually followed up. Had me present on a simple case study to several managers but didn't pass because not their overly analytical style. Before boarding home asked if I would accept. Messy.
