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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Flexible schedules - getting your work done is what counts most. People love working here and get along very well.

    Cons

    Not too many, actually. Senior management is very reserved and isolated - could communicate more to the employees. Rare to get an update on the business or direction of the company. Most information comes third hand. Company has split off divisions and has sold them. Opportunity for career growth is limited.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to interact with the employees more. Give more updates on the business.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Parallels.

    Interview

    The interview process was great. Scott did an excellent job keeping me in "the loop" in terms of the overall schedule and setting expectations around the entire process from interview to potential offer. The team asked the tough questions but also painted a clear picture of the role, what they were looking for and what it can be like working for a global company like Parallels.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were very targeted around HR Programs and Processes. However, it was also clearly an interview to ensure I was a good fit for the team dynamic.   Answer Question
