I worked at Parsons Brinckerhoff

Pros

Management takes good care of employees who work above and beyond their expectations. Company is very aggressive on pursuing projects. Always ahead of the game.

Cons

There is very littlle work sharing between offices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to work towards one PB and keep up with the competitors. Need to do more teaming than going sole source on big pursuits.

    I worked at Parsons Brinckerhoff

    Pros

    Individual business units had autonomy is terms of line management types. I had a great line manager and business unit director, however the same cannot be said for other business units. Great flexibility to for good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Many of the cons are with repsect to the senior management whom will be changing following the takeover with BBM. This will change the atmospher from an employee owned engineering consultancy to a listed company looking at bottom line. Beware the end of the honeymoon period!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management communication is erratic, or non existent. A very non-egalitarian atmosphere - I mean who has different coffee machines in the senior management 'area' ? Its an engineering company, not a investment bank.
