    I worked at InterPark full-time

    Pros

    Great company with a good team environment. Everyone was always willing to help each other. Good training program.

    Cons

    Upper management stuck in their ways. No upward movement. All leadership has been their awhile and no signs of leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your systems that are more accurate.

    Pros

    Interview was a positive experience, that's it.

    Cons

    Very fast paced. They work you like slaves and you're looked down upon. They play favorites too often. When I started this assignment as a temp before they dumped me like trash in less than 3 weeks, I was thrown to work instantly with little training and preparation for tasks. I had to ask questions often and got rude attitudes and condescending responses. For peeps sake, I was new. The managers and co workers were all condenscending in spite of having major flaws themselves. Although the staff seemed reasonably pleasant at first, I had the opportunity to see them for who they truly are in my weeks on the job. Favortism is also an obvious issue here. Although everyone's experiences working for this company is different I cannot speak for everyone else. This is my honest experience and the truth. Btw, the office is located near the University of Chicago.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional and show respect and dignity to ALL your workers, not just for your favorites.

    I worked at InterPark full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - benefits - management - flexibility - employee relations - location (Washington, DC) - opportunity for growth

    Cons

    - sold to a different (smaller) company

    Advice to Management

    I worked for InterPark during the time that it was owned by GE. This brought so many opportunities for growth for each employee. The culture was rich in development, advancement as well as family. Unfortunately, my tenure came to an end when it was purchased by LAZ Parking.

    Pros

    General duties of my position were satisfying. I had a a fair amount of creative control over the work I produced. The workplace culture was friendly and supportive. The job forces out a lot of personal creativity and independent responsibility, both important skills in any career related to writing.

    Cons

    Management expected employees to work past normal hours without any compensation. Deadlines for new projects were shortsighted. Though my department dealt with educational content, no one in the management had any background in education, leading to many counterproductive decisions. Sometimes those decisions would be overturned within a short period of time. There was a general lack of direction in my department usually due to poor foresight and quick decision making.
