Former Employee - Vice President

I worked at Parallels full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good products. Good partner ecosystem. Customers and partners love the company and products but obviously don't see how they make it to market.

Cons

Autocratic, confrontational management style. Very top-down, high turnover at top levels. Extremely political. High employee dissatisfaction among the troups. Bias for change vs. results.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Parallels

    Pros

    Free fruits and some snacks. Couches to sleep when you stay overnight. This job is acceptable, if you are a newbie without any skills and personal life.

    Cons

    inadequate project management and planning, at least in our branch
    nepotism
    communication chain between management and developers is completely broken
    lots of overtime work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people for their professional skills, not "loyalty" and family relations

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
