    I have been working at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Parsons Brickerhoff is a good company with national reach. You can see the immediate impact of the projects you work on.

    Cons

    The work can get very repetitive and the quality of your experience depends heavily on manager and work assigned

    Pros

    Great local and regional reputation with high standards. Well respected. Opportunities to work on a range of projects and locations.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge due to high profile, fast-track projects and schedules. Lack of retention incentives. Some offices feel a little 'top heavy.'

    Pros

    Ability to work on large scale projects that interest me. Flexible work schedule as long as there is not a project deadline.

    Cons

    In my office, they hire outside the company rather than promote from within. Was furloughed for two weeks without warning when work dried up.

    Advice to Management

    Office moral and job security goes way down when you furlough rather than layoff people off. What is the real benefit of furloughing someone for just two weeks?
