On the Dangers of Stochastic Parrots: Can Language Models Be Too Big?, the Parrot Papers, may have an impact on workplace culture at technology companies. A review of the Parrot Papers reveals that the partnership between organization and research could benefit from a mediation of organizational workplace culture. The independence of researchers that participate in research on areas such as ethics and society is important for the success of the relevance of their involvement. The Parrot Papers and the saga that unfolded in its publication should show as a factor that can reduce toxicity in organizational workplace culture.

The saga of the Parrot Papers may also present a benchmark for which to guide cooperation between industry and academia. Strategies to gauge bias and influence in industry sponsored research may include channels for honest discourse among researchers, support for the peer review process, and havens for researchers that articulate challenges. Constructive remedies may permit more valuable research to result from these partnerships.

Building trust in these partnerships is now on the itinerary for these partnerships to be successful. Bringing these challenges to the surface is one necessary first achievement. Forming policies and standards for these communal research environments may improve the trust and performance of these partnerships.
