I worked at Parsons Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

At Parsons, for a mid-level engineer or higher, if you are willing to work long hours and travel when required you will be awarded with challenging work and a great resume. The ESOP gives shares to all US employees, 15% of your salary or more, tax deferred.

Cons

People are squeezed hard, and you will find that in the US coastal offices in particular, the staff is so lean you won't get the people with the skills needed to get your work done. This is one place where management works harder than the staff, and most are frustrated and burned out. All this is in the name of the ESOP and share price, which everyone shares the benefit. Problem is, if you end up divorced, your spouse gets half the ESOP. I put on 20 pounds from all the business travel. Something to remember.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please keep up the hard work, and make the share price grow!
