I have exactly the same problem. Upload speeds internet speeds while in Parallels is horrible compared to concurrently running Mac. I am running Windows 7. This happens both at work and at home so I believe it is not a network problem. Parallel's support ran me through all kinds of possible fixes which did not work. It is supposed to be fixed eventually, per a response from Parallels Support dated 2/17/15. I cannot recommend Parallels to anyone until this issue is fixed.
I stand corrected as of 6/20/2015- I found this post in one of your other forums which had a link to a "fix". If you perform the change below, the problem should go away. I can now recommend Parallels to my friends. Note that my Intel PRO/1000 MT network adapter had the same property under the advance tab.
"To disable, go to Start->Control Panel->Device Manager->Network adapters->Atheros AR8152/8158 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20), right-click then select Properties. On the Advance tab, find property Large Send Offload (IPv4) and change its value to Disabled then click OK."
