Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Parature as an intern (Less than a 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 Management

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.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    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
