No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

my job has a ton of freedom, but i sit with a national group. i have very little supervision and can seek out my own projects and agreements to work on at will. good benefits, 2 weeks vacation for less than 5 years, and 3 weeks plus 8 holidays when you reach 5 years of service (i'm right at 5 years). average salary. never received a bonus.

Cons

the discipline groups, which are broken down by region, have very little freedom and often simply wait around until project work comes their way. there is very little involvement from younger staff in any part of pursuit efforts and business development, meaning movement is pretty slow until you are at least 5 years in. not winning much work in California so opportunities are waning.

Advice to Management

provide more clear performance goals and determine compensation based on goal conformance. current process for compensation and promotion is a black box.

    I have been working at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You work from 9 to 5. Everybody leaves the building at 6. PB is big so there is some chance to do work outside your office.

    Cons

    You do not advance quickly. Civing engineering saleries may not be OK for NY.
