Pros

Fellow employees are a great group of people. Easy to work with, fun to be around, and a group of hard workers.

Cons

Risk of layoff during the winter months due to the road construction season. Very hard to move up within the company once you become good at a particular job.

Advice to Management

Management needs to be more supportive of employees who want to move up in their careers or change job titles.

    Pros

    Parsons Brinckerhoff is an excellent place to work and develop a career, however, having a cheer leader or godfather/mother makes things a lot smoother. So make sure you network and sell your skills. Don't be afraid to Self promote, plus the environment is very entrepreneurial, so if you can leverage industry contacts, specifically new clients, it's open season.

    Cons

    Working on projects, outside of the local office, can be isolating and hamper networking. The RYP process is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better RYP -career development tool.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Too much life less work:)

    Cons

    Not professional in Australian side of business. Don't know about rest of the world. Some of the project managers in resorces sector wouldn't manage to keep their job in any other respectable organizations. People are encouraged to come to work, go home and certainly not a place for high achievers. Technically some people are good.

    Advice to Management

    Have a look around and benchmark with the industry. Can still be in business with small projects but need to grow up to become a major player in the market, very immature.
