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

Pros

Top flight engineering & technical staff. Excellent mentoring and experience for young professionals. Fair salaries. Excellent benefits. Employee owned. Hourly pay ensures fair treatment of employees workloads.

Cons

Bureaucratic organization. Little continuity of operation between "satellite" offices. Company tends to have top-heavy management. Management tends to ask a lot of lower level engineers; has tendency to not credit them with this in yearly performance reviews. Constant focus by upper management of improving the company share price detracts from core values.

Advice to Management

Foster better communication between levels of engineers/management. Foster better communication between offices in order to create stronger brand and make better use of shared resources.

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

    Pros

    For a AEC company, it has very high safety focus. Mostly co-workers are friendly. The work environment is decent. Good place to work for anyone who prefers individual contributor roles with little aspirations. Those in business development management roles can aspire for executive management roles.

    Cons

    Very hierarchical organizational structure. Too many in middle management. In some instances there are senior managers who manage 3 or less managers. There are projects where one person does the work and 3 people manage it (either directly or indirectly).

    Advice to Management

    Many important initiatives end up with just branding without much underneath it. Promote people who have deep understanding of the business, who understands the strengths and weaknesses of the staff, who can differentiate between talkers and doers, and who are not self centered / selfish to management.
