I have been working at Parallels full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Nice mix of casual work environment and extremely driven workforce. Nearly everyone at Parallels has a very strong work ethic and strives to produce the best for our partners and end users. Generous PTO policy, fun internal and external events, a plethora of complementary options to keep yourself caffeinated, along with the opportunity to interact with peers all over the world make this a great place to work.

Cons

Although overall compensation package is quite good, Parallels does not match 401K contributions. If you are someone who only likes to put in 40 hours a week you might not be a good fit...we work hard here!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please consider adding at least a small match to 401K contributions.

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

    Pros

    The company is really trying to improve everything from wages to working environment to products. Some leadership changes made a very big difference in how the business is run in a good way. Was a good place to work overall.

    Cons

    Not enough resources to do the work demanded. No real respect for the work done. Middle management doesn't seem to know exactly how to manage people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to what the workers are saying.

    Pros

    Great product set leading in their specific industry.
    Ideas are encouraged by management and implemented when possible.
    Everyone is always working towards a common goal and there's great inter-departmental synergy.
    Great co-workers that help each other out all the time.

    Cons

    As a relatively small company, career advancement is very limited.
    We seem to be very top heavy from a management stand point.
