    Pros

    Good atmosphere, very welcoming and friendly coworkers. Seriously every single person was pleasant and relaxed to work with. Great place to get started in front end web development.

    Cons

    Uses a proprietary scripting language that is not a transferable career skill. About $15k below market annually.

    Advice to Management

    Company itself, awesome. Perhaps make annual salary increases far greater to entice more developers to stay.

    Pros

    This company has definitely got it figured out from not only being an extremely successful ecommerce solution but also in the way they treat their staff and employees. Its fully understood here that in order to have happy customers, creating a solid working environment in every possible way is essential to thrive.

    Cons

    I couldnt say a bad thing about this place if I tried.

    Pros

    Really laid back place to work. Flat organizational structure makes it easy for anyone's ideas to be heard.

    Cons

    No cons that I can think of.

    I have been working at Miva full-time

    Pros

    Miva is a great environment to work in. It's fun, casual and comes with a set of exciting challenges. The team is young, determined and ready to take on these challenges. It's a great stepping stone for those just entering the Ecommerce tech industry. Absolutely one of the best teams I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    The pay is below market rate. I don't feel valued as an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Better compensation will keep employees happy, make them feel valued and in turn they will continue to help the company grow.

    I have been working at Miva full-time

    Pros

    The people, work environment and opportunities to contribute in a meaningful way to projects is great.

    The Miva eCommerce Admin software / programming language we use is polished and powerful.

    Events during work time are often.

    The building and break room accommodations are great.

    Cons

    It is a bit far from where I live.

    Now let me talk about pay... The pay is not good at all. It is FAR below average for San Diego and I do not feel like the company values their employees very well. If you are looking for a place to start a career I probably would look somewhere else. The opportunities for promotions and growth for individuals are slim to none.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise to value your employees higher and pay us a decent salary.

    I have been working at Miva full-time

    Pros

    The staff was friendly and welcoming, which matches the company's culture. They were interested in getting to know me personally, and not just focusing on what I could offer them. The whole process took roughly a week and I was kept in the loop of what to expect going forward.

    Cons

    The whole process was extremely positive so there is nothing bad I can say about it.
