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

Pros

Well established Engineering consulting firm with amazing specialty engineering expertise. a great place to learn. Very intelligent and approachable leadership. They support many worthy charitable causes and that is a focus for the corporation.

Cons

It can take a while to get things done, but when they move forward they do things right.

Advice to Management

Try to make decisions and move things along faster if possible.

    I have been working at Parsons Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have a very good training program.

    Cons

    Nice bonus program if you are higher than a VP. The COO gets 1+ bonus every year.

    Advice to Management

    Company officers can get away with having office affairs but it a termination offense to the lower employees.Your HR department is full of men hating divorcee's who would not know fair from french fries. I worked with the most foul mouthed women that would make a Sailor/Truck Driver combined blush, yet she continues to work there. If it was a man cussing like that he would be reprimanded. Need to find an equal balance between men and women.
    There is no leadership at the 9th floor they need to get the old CEO back at least he was fair.

    I worked at Parsons Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Reputable, leadership is fine. Big entity with usual setback of forgetting that each and every employee is the greatest asset of the company. Does not initiate an initial good working relationship with a new employee and provide no further incentives to keep that employee.

    Cons

    Too conglomerate to deal with a new "one of the branch" employee's concerns; have to struggle to have your office and project needs provided; have to wait for some time to be furnished with your requests and there is too much politics before one had to be released. Basically you are given some sort of early survival training when in fact it is you project that is more affected.

    Advice to Management

    Give each branch office its independence to procure its office needs; monitor and control from a central location higher purchase limits so as to expedite basic local project needs. Give the new employee the proper orientation training and give more focus on that new employee's needs to get his job going and provide him the required needs as to the projects he is going to be assigned. It is rather frustrating to a neophyte to figure out where to get what is needed in such a big entity. Do not be a penny wise but a dollar fool!
