    I have been working at Maven Wave Partners full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Culture encourages personal accountability (no one is looking over your shoulder/micro-managing your work)
    - Opportunity to work across a number of industries with well-known companies
    - Client engagements tend to be shorter in duration (less than a year), which allows employees to be exposed to different opportunities
    - Good job keeping remote employees engaged and included in the company culture
    - Transparency about company financial health and direction from senior leadership

    Cons

    - Concerns about the ability to maintain culture while rapidly expanding head count
    - Uncertainty about career path and qualifications for promotion
    - Lack of support from management to pursue non-Google professional certifications related to my job function

    Advice to Management

    Continue to find different ways of encouraging employee participation during social events. As the company continues to hire seasoned professionals, the appetite for events centered around drinking will fall off.

    Pros

    -- Fun, collaborative and cohesive work environment with a strong culture and high-profile, interesting projects.

    -- Fast paced while ensuring work/life balance is a top priority for employees.

    -- Cutting edge technology through the Google Partnership.

    -- If you work hard, you'll succeed and advance internally. The consulting tiers allow easy growth without requiring a superior to leave or be promoted. Awesome internal progression plans and mentorship to ensure all employees are able to grow. Anyone has the opportunity to become a Senior Principal, Managing Director, Partner if they put in the effort.

    -- Fun in-office events such as First Friday parties (Kentucky Derby Day, architecture boat tour, Cubs game, pool parties, BBQs, etc.) to ensure that all employees stay connected and comfortable with each other as the company grows and teams are consistently relying on each other for collaboration.

    Cons

    None. Keep up the good work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep culture a top priority!

    Pros

    It's easy to enjoy working somewhere when you have full trust in the folks at the top. The Partners are completely transparent, personable, and genuinely care about you. This sentiment carries itself all the way down the firm. When this is combined with some of the brightest minds in tech/consulting, the incredible growth they've experienced doesn't come as a surprise.

    Cons

    With any growing firm, sometimes your assignments have a lack of structure. You must be able to adapt to changes quickly and lead with little guidance.
