Great place to work and getting better every day!

Renton, WA

I have been working at Parallels full-time

ProsVery motivated employees who are focusing on making positive changes.
International presence makes the culture interesting and allows lots of learning.
Very fast paced and in high growth mode.
Fun environment and great people!

ConsThere is some inexperience in management, but I believe this is part of growing pains. The company has made HUGE strides over the last few years and continues to keep getting better.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to listen to the employees and continue to focus on Talent Management.
