Sometimes the best things come in small packages. At least that’s what women who work at these companies say. 

Working at a small company has some major benefits. Your presence is valued, you’re given more one-on-one attention, there’s less bureaucracy, and there’s more space for you to progress. 

If you’re looking for a job where you can grow with a team that knows you, you can stop looking. These four small companies that women love are hiring right now.

1. Pariveda Solutions

Pariveda Solutions, a technology strategy and solutions consulting firm, is a “company <that> challenges and supports you to become your best self… but also values healthy work-life balance.” 
They make career growth expectations and opportunities very clear with their Pariveda Expectations Framework, that lays out how promotions are earned at every level. Likewise, they offer a transparent pay scale based on cohort level that ensure pay equity across the company. 
On top of clear expectations, Pariveda has several systems in place to help you meet them. They offer a mentorship program, a women’s forum (Espirit de Femme), professional trainings, and executive coaching. It’s no wonder they were voted a “great place to work” by Glassdoor, Fortune, Consulting Magazine, and Computerworld.

NCC Media offers 5 weeks of paid vacation, comprehensive fertility benefits, competitive maternity and paternity leave, and meaningful care-taking benefits.
