    I worked at Parsons Corporation

    Pros

    The work is incredibly interesting and presents new challenges all the time. If you are the type who enjoys a challenge, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    The atmosphere is a bit serious at times, maybe lacking the culture of a Facebook or Google.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More time off would always be a plus, and not having so much corporate red tape preventing progress.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Parsons Corporation.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview after career fair. Expected a general, behavioral interview but it was a technical interview. It started off with going over my resume, then started asking simple technical questions to more sophisticated ones. I wasn't asked to actually code anything, but I was asked to explain the algorithm that solves the problem as well as time efficiency.

    Interview Questions
    • Open ended, but simple questions like "what is an operating system?" were unexpected.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not ask if I can negotiate. I was ok with the offer and I just accepted it.
