I have been working at Parsons Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Marketplace for the environmental business is changing and although large, Parsons is trying to position itself better by using some cash to purchase other companies in businesses that they see expanding in the future. The retirement plans are good

Cons

Work is cyclic and it is important to develop contacts in other Parsons offices to navigate the slow times.

Advice to Management

Adapting to the marketplace is very important. More of a challenge for a large company, but ihopefully your efforts will pay off.

    Pros

    Geared to help employees better themselves. A nation wide company which creates more opportunities to grow if you are willing to travel, or relocate.

    Cons

    Not much for company pride, as in giving out Parsons logo shirts. Also, it would be nice to get more recognition when major jobs are completed.

    I worked at Parsons Corporation full-time

    Pros

    PM CM projects in a diversified field across several nations, opportunity to work overseas specially in middle east with some really smart and talented people. But the majority of the crowd is very very mediocre passing time counting their stock options..!

    Cons

    Engineering talent has taken a flight given the fact that they sold their EPC practice to Worley, mostly PMC work which is mostly routine and busy work. Strong old boys network which is almost impossible to break in unless you are an ex military or white skinned If you do not belong to one of these groups but are ambitious then do NOT join this company. They give only lip service to things like diversity, innovation and recognizing and promoting talent.. I left after working for them for about 6 years in their water division

    Advice to Management

    The world is changing. You know what happened to companies that did not keep with the change...put the stiff collar culture away and do not pretend what you are not...
