    Pros

    This is the best recruiting company I have worked for! Michael Dash has rebuilt the team, culture to create an amazing atmosphere and work/life balance here at Parallel HR. My managers and team members are amazing and insightful and very team driven to make everyone succeed. the core values along with mentor-ship make this company one of the best I have worked for!

    Cons

    They have a very formal process witch can be challenging to learn.

    Advice to Management

    better healthcare options would be nice.
    I love the training and the open door policy, I can contact my managers day or night and get sound advise. That is a major perk!

    I worked at Parallel HR full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros..... not one

    Cons

    Where do I begin .... Michael Dash is all about Michael Dash .... he walks around the office demanding respect that he didn't earn. On several occasions he has fired someone just before their commission was due. If you give him any push back or offer a better solution to a problem you are reminded of the pecking order of the company - Its Michael's company and what he says is law. Please do your self a favor and stay away, they will tell what you what you want to hear to get you on board and then its down hill from there.

    Advice to Management

    Remove Michael Dash from leadership -

    I have been working at Parallel HR full-time

    Pros

    I have worked for Parallel for 2 years and I love it. It is so nice to work in an office with no drama from co-workers. I feel we all have eachothers back. I have never worked for a company that invested so much into it's employees growth. This company wants you to succeed and will give you every opportunity to grow - If you take it. The CEO is hands on and always there to encourage you to grow.

    Cons

    Don't work here if you do not want to be challenged!

    I worked at Parallel HR full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is probably the worst recruiting agency I've ever worked in! Honestly, there is not ONE pro to doing time at Parallel.

    Cons

    All of them...poor relationships in the industry, owned by an offensive small minded person.

    Advice to Management

    Just stop. One star was selected, because you can't give a company a Zero stars rating.

    Pros

    If you want to move up in your career, and you want the chance to actually learn how to be successful, then this is the right place for you! In my other recruiting positions, I was never given the chance to actually touch the account management piece and try it out. As soon as I started here, I was given a couple accounts to manage and it has been such a great learning experience! Getting to open up your own reqs, meet with hiring leaders, and actually get your piece of the pie feels amazing! I love that you can basically do what you want here and run your own desk! There are not many people working in this office, but the people that are here are very close knit! Very upbeat and friendly environment and NO drama!

    Cons

    Not had any cons thus far.

    I have been working at Parallel HR full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked for this company twice and was re-hired last fall. As a recruiter quality counts. In terms of clients and jobs this company has really turned around. There's much more volume, client contact, and the candidates have a higher engagement because they really like the jobs we're submitting them to. The healthcare plans have improved this year. Parallel has worked with me and my personal situation to provide flex time etc.

    Cons

    There's definitely times recruiting gets stressful from many things up in the air. Most of being a Recruiter involves dealing with low grade frustration and letting it all roll off.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring

    I worked at Parallel HR full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Parallel HR Solutions is a good company to work with due to following reasons:-

    1. Working environment is well and good.
    2. Opportunity to explore talent & to make good communication skill.
    3. Lot of Training's provided those who understand best for them.
    4. Salary providing good and enough

    Cons

    1. Very bad organization to work with for a long term.
    2. Employees are not satisfied to work on PHR either say on Utah or in Nashik location because of more micro management.
    3. Previously everything was fine but day after day all things are spoiled. There is some messed up with the organization.
    4. The employees those who works with are not satisfied.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be established a good relationship with all the employees, because they works as a family. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. If it ain't broke, don't fix it & Look before you leap.

    I worked at Parallel HR full-time

    Pros

    Experienced management that provides excellent training. Competitive comp plan. Great recruiting tools. Great list of clients.

    Cons

    I'm an outside sales guy. Sitting at a desk all day isn't for me. If, however, you don't mind sitting at a desk this is a great place to recruit for some of the top companies.
