    I have been working at Parsons Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company offers excellent benefits and the longer you stay the better they get.
    Majority of co-workers are team players and great people to be around everyday.

    Cons

    Management needs to require regular meeting with personnel to go over current and upcoming jobs and proposals. They are working toward a one parsons mentality however it has taken a very long time and still needs work.

    Advice to Management

    They need to enable and engage experienced personnel to improve the processes of completing a job and utilizing programs to their fullest potential. Training for updated programs need to happen on at least a yearly basis. Reserve profits to retain employees when work is low.

    I have been working at Parsons Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Engineering support team was excellent. They understood what the engineers needed and worked hard to make sure that it was available.

    Cons

    Completely dysfunctional organization. Lack of cooperative spirit between design disciplines. Active antagonism from some leads to passive-aggressive behavior from discipline engineers. All due to a failure of upper management to be actively involved and in touch with employees. For two years the engineering manager walked by my desk every morning and greeted me by the wrong name even though my name plate was just above my head. Management failed to take the lead in understanding where the design was at and where it was going. Immediate manager checked out frequently to work from home. He had lost the fire to be actively involved.

    Advice to Management

    Upper level managers need to greet and get to know employees at all levels. This will require that you quit surfing the internet long enough to get out of your office and walk around work areas.
    Cut deadwood lower managers that have stopped contributing. Don't jump chain of command to preference one lower level manager over another. The hierarchy of the management chain must be strictly followed. Realize that as you move up in the management hierarchy that you need to back away from controlling the small details but that you must hold accountable the managers that are controlling the design process. Find opportunities to praise the work of individual employees in front of their peers.
