    I worked at Parsons Corporation as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are no pros, sorry

    Cons

    Where to start? I was hired on a program in support of the Navy. My direct Parsons supervisor could not even write in proper English. The vibe is just politics not merit. Everyone on the program was treated as a cash cow and nothing else.

    Advice to Management

    Customer service starts internally with your peers. When you have every single employee on a program highly dissatisfied does not help you getting any more programs especially when they jump ship and now they are the ones in the position of approving contracts for you.

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

    Pros

    They don't seem to lay off until they have to. The facilities are nice. Free coffee. Decent benefits. If you are in Pasadena, there are some nice perks.

    Cons

    You get promoted by not speaking the truth. They don't like to hear about not following their own core values. There are no secrets, and it is easy to kill your career by saying what you feel. They want you to be a happy, cheerleading fool that ignores the things that keep this company from getting to the next level.

    Advice to Management

    Accept some of the blame for the mess that is Parsons. Get out and talk to the employees, and I mean those that do the actual work; not those that take all the credit. Clean out some of those middle micromanagers. You can't swing a dead cat around without hitting a bunch of VPs.
