    Pros

    Good benefits, including free tuition(Pre-tax)

    Cons

    I can't speak for all areas of the institution, but in my department of about 60 employees, I've seen quite a bit of wasted expenditures and general poor support of staff. For-profit expections were placed on employees working at non-profit rates, and gender discrimination ran rampant. Everyone changed from trying to do thier best work to pleasing the boss and by extension, that person's underlings. Individuals of thoughtful quality were let go.

    Pros

    Most departments strive for a work life balance

  8. 1.0
    Former Employee, more than 5 years

    Pros

    When a hiring manager understands how to lead, empower, train and build professional quality in the office by supervising with a relational capacity and encouraging development--the place is a keen environment to have a productive, proactive and positive experience. Benefits are good, the overall mission is powerful and most of the students are there with some of the best intentions of bettering our society. The school has a rich history that marketing clings onto--hopefully faculty and students continue their activists stances on immigration, free education and inclusion. The brand has a far reaching and international reputation, leading many students from varied countries to attend all levels of degrees.

    Cons

    Working in administration for many years, I noticed a despicable sense of bureaucracy. Getting anything done required vapid meetings with unknowledgeable and out-of-touch leadership. Enrollment management/admissions are the most egregious. Leadership in that department act like factory managers in an industrialized corporate learning factory, bringing in more and more students without the selectivity all colleges within the school supposedly accentuates in marketing materials. The lack of knowledge of the most basic systems and strategies breeds poor decisions and frustrate deans and faculty (and current students) to the core. The school does not stand by it's mission behind the walls of the administrative machine. The bottom line is dollar bills, not student well being. Over full classrooms, poor adjunct pay (& communication), not enough courses running for saturated majors of students trying to complete their degree leading them to stay longer ($$$$$) to complete their requirements. Mainly, the place is the epitome of students concerns equalling dollar bills opposed to the righteous mission of yesteryear. One of the VPs managing 'Student Success' main experience before being hired was at the University of Phoenix--an online degree mill. Seriously pathetic choices have been made by the president for other senior leadership in Enrollment. The school's structure reveals that due to this 'out-of-touch' leadership the 'middle tier' salary employees and union employees are working well over their full time job descriptions. Folks are underpaid for the technical and advanced professional work-load and when individuals move on to better environments with higher pay (and respect) the administration freezes hiring to save money. This burdens the current employee with even more work and long hours without better pay or promotions.

    Pros

    The benefits package is pretty good. Most people are very friendly.

    Cons

    The Payroll Department is poorly managed. Turnover is extremely high. The next Payroll Analyst will be their 4th in about 1 year. Constant struggle for power between management. No accountability. Constant finger pointing. Most are inexperience in their field.

    You have to accept it for what it is

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Parsons's atmosphere is charged with creativity. You'll soak it up just being there. Design is important in all facets of life and so learning some principles could be useful to one's career. Think about how everything from your car to your shoes to your cereal is designed. There are many classes to take for free. Stimulating people to meet and work with are another plus. Health benefits are very generous. Time off accumulates quickly (a norm in higher education). These are good jobs for people who need flexibility and solid benefits.

    Cons

    The pay is limited and the same goes for opportunities to really move up the career ladder. Non-for-profits will give you as much responsibility as you are willing to bear - just don't ask for more money. Also, if you are a member of the admin union, you'll find that it is a little difficult to move into a non-union position. (The non-union positions are higher up.) It serves as an added barrier.
