Disapproves of CEO

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!

    "Poorly organized internship experience, management didn't care much"

    I worked at Parsons Corporation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great office, 3 interns per office and we had two large windows. Very casual environment

    Cons

    The project was pointless and there was no intention of it ever seeing the light of day. The internship also was nothing like what was described when I agreed to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you have an idea of what the internship will be before you start hiring people. Make sure to not make any promises you cannot keep.
