Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Average salary and health benefits, well-above average ESOP contribution (and free), good work share between offices, relatively easy to find projects and keep busy if motivated and willing to commute short distances, good travel reimbursement system, healthy company, intellegent workforce, and rarely fired workers.

Cons

Fair promotion potential, fair communications down from management, lack of support for outside training and conferences, small bonuses, and tedious project management financial requirements.

Advice to Management

Train project analysts to balance the monthly financial reporting for the PMs, allow the PMs to verify it, but have the PAs input and update the data. More recognition and promotions for your project managers. Recognize technical experts and don't force everyone to become PMs.

    I worked at Parsons Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The employee stock plan is really good, IMHO. There are some very good people working there at all levels (management and below). They have a good blend of paying attention to you and leaving you alone so that you are supported without feeling smothered.

    Cons

    There is an inflated sense of their contribution to the client which can lead to problems with these clients. This is personal, but much of the work is with clients who are fairly adept at mismanaging either taxpayer or customer (and many of these are monopolies) money. Work in Iraq, Mideast etc. etc.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on what you can get from the client, focus on what you can do for the client. And find some better clients.
