    I have been working at Parature full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I really love the people and culture at Parature. The team is very passionate about the success of clients and the "do-whatever-it-takes attitude" has been infectious over the years. Every first Friday of the month, lunch is catered in for employees, so everything from all you can eat Five Guys burgers to thai food has been a really great perk.

    Cons

    Commute is pretty far with the HQ located in Herndon, VA.

    I worked at Parature as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Casual - wore shorts/t-shirt everyday
    Very nice, smart people that are always available to answer questions
    The product they advertised and sold was very effective and well-made - have big name clients that were fun to work with and learn about

    Cons

    Small company - didn't seem like there was much room to grow past a certain point

    Pros

    Fun environment. Free food occasionally.

    Cons

    Way back when, it was a bigger company. While the product was somewhat antiquated it was a fun environment. Now, it's just a shadow of what it once was. The product is still antiquated, but the people are good. Though job security is not guaranteed. Layoffs happened all the time.

    Nice atmosphere, but company doesn't feel sustainable.

    I worked at Parature as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Talented young employees have the ability to move to other parts of the company, provided they demonstrate knowledge of the core product. The office environment is enjoyable, with food and ping-pong provided.

    Cons

    The company doesn't inspire tons of confidence. When I worked there, the office was located in Tysons Corner, and they've been forced to move to a cheaper location. The core product is seen as a cheaper alternative to services such as Salesforce, but it feels like you're getting what you paid for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the core product more robust. The tons of tiny bugs make it hard for new people to catch on, and can make troubleshooting very difficult.

    I worked at Parature

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedule. Everyone is very friendly including senior management. True startup environment with free drinks and snacks. Open to ideas.

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking. There is no clear vision of senior management heading for the same goal and purpose. It was once innovative and leader in the space.

    Pros

    The People
    Free Snacks & Drinks

    Cons

    No Opportunity for Advancement or Professional Development
    Salary Not Competitive
    Constant Changes to Compensation Plans, Always to the Benefit of the Company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open with your employees, listen to ALL of your employees not just the select few in the "in crowd", reward ALL employees for hard work not just the select few in the "in crowd", deliver on promises made to employees - especially monetary promises
