    I worked at Riviera Partners full-time

    Pros

    If your an athlete, competitive, and like figuring things out on your own, this is the place for you. The people at Riviera are some of the best people I know, and a fun bunch of individuals. Everyone is there to answer questions and grab a drink after a rough day. Lots of room for growth if you drink the juice and put in the hard work.

    Cons

    Their on-boarding process is extremely disorganized and lacks any real value. Compared to other startups, they do not put in any real effort to make you feel welcomed to the team (aside from some individuals). Coming in you are expected to be proactive and ask questions or you will not succeed. If you do not lean on team members or people close to you, the higher ups will not help. Also, it is a very bro culture. For women, if your not a strong female who was an athlete or grew up with a brother you will hate it. Lot's of politics at the top level, the executive team is stubborn. Change is often, turnover is high.

    Advice to Management

    If you truly want to succeed as a company and retain top employees, you need to start taking the feedback from the people you want to invest in to heart. Also, learn from your past mistakes. Take some accountability in the unfavorable things people have said and done and not make excuses for them.

    Pros

    - Unlimited PTO, if you can get over the guilt trips they give you when you use it.
    - Great place to start a career.

    Cons

    - Base pay is a joke
    - They recently started paying bonuses in Rivi stock options.
    - You have to use their internal ATS that is pretty weak.

    I worked at Riviera Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you like to party then this would be a good spot for you,

    Cons

    If you weren't a white dude, you were a second-class citizen. Horrible place for women and anyone who wanted a life outside of the company. Super high turn over rate. I left around the same time as 15 others. Also, the pay is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your recruiting team as well as you treat the engineers.

    Pros

    Collaborative and opportunity driven environment. Great Partnership team that allows you to express your interests and challenges you to reach your full potential.

    Cons

    The hours can be daunting but that's the start-up/entrepreneurial world.

    Advice to Management

    A little more communication. Their isn't a ceiling but connecting weekly or checking in on lower management to see how thins are going will go a long way.

    * growing pains- management is still working to catch up with growth and establish policies and organizational alignment
    * if you are not a solid performer, it's hard to make ends meet in San Francisco
    * while flexible, as an agency recruiter, you'll spend a lot of time outside of the standard work day working
