    I have been working at Parata Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have a company they are stable

    Cons

    Poor health plan if you go above and beyond by doing overtime that will go below and low by paying you only half you hourly rate for hours over 40. If your in training they won’t even bring in water and snacks but thy will have board meetings and leave food out with a sign that says don’t touch its for board members only. They will make you do summit training in Durham over the weekend on salary so they don’t have... to pay extra. Most of what they do for employees gives me a sensation of being given the bird.

    I have been working at Parata Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
