    I worked at Park IP Translation full-time

    Pros

    Majority of the people here are really great both to work with and on a personal level.

    Cons

    -Workloads are very unreasonable and each day is a never-ending grind, scrambling to try and get all the work done, but there's never enough time. It's always heads-down and in the weeds, never a free moment to stop, take a breathe and think.
    -Employees are often operating under high duress. It was not uncommon to hear someone say they broke down and cried in their one on one with their manager because the stress was getting so overwhelming.
    -High turnover rate contributes to the team feeling constantly overloaded, but management doesn't appear to see the issue.
    -Work-life balance is terrible. Most PM's work through lunch and work late almost every day. A normal 40 hour week is very rare here.
    -Pay is pretty terrible, especially when you consider the expectations.
    -PM role can be pretty boring, it's a lot of clicky-click, time-consuming admin work.
    -Not a very trusting culture and management seems to lack empathy for the experience of their employees as feedback is often received with condescension or hostility.

    Advice to Management

    I'll simply recommend that they read and consider some of the points in this book: It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work by David Heinemeier Hansson and Jason Fried.

    I worked at Park IP Translation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good experience in managing several projects simultaneously. Ensured that each employee was well trained in the policies of the business and continuing education/seminars within the company.

    Cons

    Work hours were too long, and no compensation for continuously having to work over-time, no benefits provided, work environment/climate felt very tense, favoring of employees because of connections
