    I have been working at Parature full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I really love the people and culture at Parature. The team is very passionate about the success of clients and the "do-whatever-it-takes attitude" has been infectious over the years. Every first Friday of the month, lunch is catered in for employees, so everything from all you can eat Five Guys burgers to thai food has been a really great perk.

    Cons

    Commute is pretty far with the HQ located in Herndon, VA.

    I worked at Parature full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun environment. Free food occasionally.

    Cons

    Way back when, it was a bigger company. While the product was somewhat antiquated it was a fun environment. Now, it's just a shadow of what it once was. The product is still antiquated, but the people are good. Though job security is not guaranteed. Layoffs happened all the time.

    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.

    The People

    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
