Great work, poor management

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Durham, NC

I have been working at Parata Systems

ProsParata is a great place to work but forget job security. Pros are: flexible hours, great people, no micromanagement, interesting work, Starbucks coffee

ConsForget the annual senior management pep-talk. It's really pipe dreams versus reality. Lots of folks laid off right after the last pep talk. You just have to have the right expectations (ie, you never know when the next layoff will be). For now I'll stay, but resume is ready to go!

Advice to Senior ManagementMake the rounds and actually talk to your employees. Don't put all your eggs in the employee survey basket. Hire some real marketing folks.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
