I have been working at Parsons Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

It's a job with healthcare benefits available.

Cons

Watch out for yourself because 99% of your "team" will not. You must fend for yourself in this company.

The only people who get any advancement are the young professionals Example: I makes less than $6/hour more now than when I started with this company 10 years ago

If you're not fresh out of college there are few opportunities, no real training, and no dollars for additional training. The concept of a real team is non-existent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut 30% of your management. Streamline systems across the company. Follow through on accountability requirements. Let managers manage instead of doing the same job their staff performs. Don't go public (as you say you plan to do by 2015). Turn "Talent Mangement" back into Human Resources.

    I worked at Parsons Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is an office full of professional people who are really friendly and hard working!
    A pleasure to work in this clean environment!

    Cons

    There are no rewards for the hard work..
    The newest employees are laid off first when a shortage of work occurs.
    No job security in this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No any appreciation or consideration from the HQ towards the employees of this office.
    There is this feeling like this office is left out of Parsons Corporation unless when is about to laid off people.
