Pariveda Solutions – Why Work With 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.

Our Vice Presidents are responsible for both the engagement pursuit and engagement delivery ensuring continuity and accountability from the sale through solution delivery.

Findamentals

At Pariveda, the principles of diversity, inclusion, and equity are integral to our mission, and we are intentional in our efforts to foster those principles in everything we do.

  • We raise awareness of unconscious bias and inclusion challenges in the workplace through firm-wide annual workshops.
  • We partner with leading diversity organizations to ensure we reach a diverse universe of candidates at all levels of experience.
  • We sponsor Women’s, LGBTQ+, and Employees of Color groups to foster an inclusive and supportive work environment.

As an employee-owned firm with a mission of developing our people towards their highest potential, we believe in the essential nature of these principles to our success. When everyone feels empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work, the best outcomes can be achieved for our employees, our clients, and our communities.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pariveda Solutions (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    They did a wonderful job of setting expectations (explaining their transparent pay, the number of rounds of interviews, etc.) and then continuing to quickly follow-up after each step. The process is intentionally slow, and they made that very clear up front. After the last interview, I heard back within 24 hours, which was greatly appreciated. Overall, they communicated well and followed through on the expectations they set.

    Interview Questions

    • Something that went wrong in a project, how I resolved it, and what I learned.   1 Answer
