Mission: We power pharmacies to help people lead healthy lives.
I have been working at Parata Systems full-time (More than 10 years)
Parata has an amazing culture where everyone's voice is heard and valued. They recognize that great ideas can come from anywhere ranging from the boardroom to the warehouse, and of course the customer. The are large enough to provide great stability yet small enough to be nimble and open to new ideas.
With a sizable remote workforce, not everyone gets to enjoy the culture and benefits of being part of the day to day life @ Parata. This probably isn't anything that can be solved, but unfortunately is a variable which affects remote teams.
Advice to Management
Continue to strive for inclusion and collaboration, don't let distance nor job responsibilities prevent anyone from contributing to the bigger picture.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Parata Systems (Durham, NC) in July 2012.
Only had one interview, and I had very little preparation going into it. It turned out to be quite simple, with a mixture of easy technical questions and several questions about my experience. Know the Software Engineering basics and be ready to ask questions. The people are friendly, and will help if you get stuck on a question.
