    I worked at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Stability, local management is generally quite good within their power.

    Cons

    Noncompetetive compensation, bureaucracy, career stagnation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall PB was a decent company to work for. However, as a satellite office, my location felt like we were always forced to go to New York with bowl in hand, begging "Please sir, may I have some more?" whenever anything was needed. It was a nice break from the cutthroat realm of pure tech jobs, but I did feel like my career was at the mercy of a bureaucratic dinosaur while I was there.
