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!

    I worked at Parsons Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work at HQ in Pasadena and you're on the gravy train.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't seem to give a $)(_; what goes on in the others offices, other than the push to pad the bottom line for the stock pricing.

    Advice to Management

    Chuck, George, et all, need to understand what is happening in the trenches, especially with their middle managers and PMs running their jobs. Parsons has lost so many great employees over the past few years but seem to retain many that should have been let go earlier. Seems if one REALLY screws up, one gets promoted into the numerous VP+ slots. Your HR for u p seems to be seriously lacking in ethics (personal experience that is documented) and many around only to be Corp 's yes men/women.
