    Pros

    Mentorship program; career development plan; transparent pay structure

    Cons

    Pay is below average for San Francisco, but above average in less expensive areas.

    Advice to Management

    I have some ambivalence around the importance of culture fit. On one hand, those that don't fit in, and aren't true believers in the process tend not to stay and thrive. On the other hand, I sometimes wonder if culture fit excludes unique people that would bring something different to the organization. (This comment is unrelated to diversity. The SF office is pretty diverse.)

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Great work culture
    Transparent business model
    Decent career trajectory

    Cons

    Seriously underpaid in San Francisco and Seattle Offices
    Lack of advancement opportunities at lower levels

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of really great aspects about Pariveda. It has a solid work life balance, good benefits, 4 weeks of PTO, well defined expectations, among many other things.

    However it should be noted the people that decide on Salaries are based in Texas where cost of living is cheap, and tech talent is harder to find. This means they can pay less in Texas and still keep good tech talent around. However for other markets like Seattle and San Francisco there is a cost of living adjustment (COLA). However it does not even come close to matching what other employers are paying in these cities. It is easily 20k - 30k lower in a city like San Francisco. The brass in Texas does not seem to understand this fact so there is a lot more turnover in the San Francisco office comparatively.

    The other problem is that each employee is given an opportunity for promotion once every year and you can only advance one level at a time. No exceptions. Period. This actually sounds great on paper and probably is for those who are further along in their career. However there is no monetary reward or upward mobility for going above and beyond expectations. It will certainly help toward an individual review cycle, but there is no way to get a raise or promotion outside of this once a year promotion offer.

    This compounds with the fact that employees in tech heavy markets are underpaid. Like I said, Pariveda does many things correctly. They just need to get their salaries together and this would be an excellent company

    Pros

    Transparency - in terms of communication to employees, salaries, and expectations for promotion. Where else can you go on the intranet and see what everyone at a particular level makes? I've never worked at a more open place.

    Growth mindset - Failure is OK. Our CEO would tell you that if you're not failing, you're not experimenting enough. Everyone is being trained to become an executive.

    People focus - The company puts its money where its mouth is - when a decision is made, first and foremost the question is asked: How will it affect the people?

    Evolved people - There's a humanness at Pariveda that's hard to explain to someone who does not work here. People show care and concern for others.

    Cons

    Because we are growing and continually evolving - as people and as an organization - there are endless opportunities to work on things outside your "day job". The company can take as much work as you put into it, so each individual must determine for him or herself when to say No.

    Advice to Management

    You're on the right course. Don't change the core things that make us who we are.

    Be wary and mindful of balancing the polarity of today's needs and future needs.

    Pros

    The people: shared fundamental values around communication, work ethic, teamwork, career development, and supporting one another both professionally and personally. Executive and leadership teams that lead offices and drive business growth by prioritizing these same values before all else.

    Work expectations fair and transparent; growth opportunities abundant and realistic

    The fact that as an employee now, everything I was sold throughout the recruiting and interview process is actually how the company operates and what I experience on a day to day basis.

    Cons

    At times internal communication and the decision-making process around operational decisions or changes can be slow.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to operate with the transparency that you do. Continue to find new ways to engage all employees in the business and offer them new opportunities to grow their careers.

    The people are fantastic - I enjoy going to work because of them, learning from them and being part of a team!
    Supportive environment that is focused on growing our people and the firm. Thoughtful approach to development through our Expectations Framework to guide the growth of Fins (employees) throughout their career.

    Cons

    There are times it seems we don't look outward to help us improve as we are focused on what we do right.
    Lack of support structure on expanding into new markets and capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of what we are building as we bring on new leaders.
    Grow with purpose and to maintain quality as we expand our capabilities.

    Pros

    - Transparent Payscale
    - Excellent Benefits
    - Great Mentorship Program
    - Career path planning
    - Culture of Learning and Openness
    - ESOP

    Pariveda Solutions is a company I see myself staying for a very long time. I can genuinely say I care about and enjoy working with the people here. Everyone is very committed to growing themselves and each other.

    One thing I want to stress is the ESOP. Over time, the employees are becoming the owners of this company. Pariveda is not held captive by public shareholders pushing quarterly profits. It is the employees who have a vested interest in seeing the company succeed. It is how the company's culture will continue to be maintained for many decades to come.

    Cons

    - The 401k match is a little weak
    - A little cult-like atmosphere, but I personally love the Kool-aid
    - Sometimes you have to commute, but its comes with consulting

    Advice to Management

    Always seek to protect the wonderful culture that has been built here.
