    I have been working at Parsons Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Parsons is a huge corporation with several different divisions. Their offices are spread throughout the US and the world. Telecommuting is common and accepted, which is a huge pro. Salaries are competitive. Support staff (Talent Management, Procurement, Finance, Contracts, Project Controls, etc.) are excellent and responsive.

    Cons

    Parsons is so risk-averse that innovation or new growth is hard to imagine. Parsons grows by acquiring smaller companies with no apparent strategy for melding corporate cultures. The markets that Parsons chooses to focus on seem to change with the wind and its all about short-term gain with no appetite for the long game. Benefits, particularly PTO, are antiquated and the bureaucracy is so rigid that there is no room for negotiation with regard to PTO. Even at a high level, PTO for a new employee is only 2 weeks. The notion of "One-Parsons"--that is to say, working with and across Global Business Units--is a farce. In reality, cooperation between the GBUs is extremely difficult and not supported by Upper Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management of Parsons Government Services is extremely risk-averse and almost entirely focused on the US market. With the exception of Parsons' large presence in the Middle East, Parsons Management demonstrates no desire or appetite for expanding into other areas of the world--a stance that benefits Parsons US and international competitors.
