    I have been working at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really like my job. Good pay and nice benefits. Flexible schedule. Intelligent and friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    The company has had some trouble with morale after the purchase by Balfour Beatty. Now with the recent sale to WSP, there is tentative optimism that things might improve, but a lot of uncertainty as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what it takes to attract and hang onto the best. In the four years that I've been here, I've seen many good people leave unnecessarily. Moving the bulk of the NYC staff to Amish country, PA was a huge mistake. It might have saved millions of dollars on paper, but the negative ramifications of that decision continue today.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Parsons Brinckerhoff.

    initially the conversation were the HR questions and then the interviewer asked technical questions to test the knowledge in software and basic civil engineering.
    Overall interview was a good conversation and good experience. The interviewer gave room to talk about my interests. Interviewer was interested to know how much I knew about PB. interviewer called me for interview because my resume had somethings which they were very much interested in.

    Interview Questions
