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

    Pros

    Atmosphere, products and location are great. The engineers with many years of experience are good people. The building is state of the art.

    Cons

    Salaries are below average and the new management lacks experience. There is a schism between the engineers and new management with regard to products, process and EHS.

    HR and CEO are making concerted effort to improve moral; however, the problem is that there are inexperienced managers operating (micromanaging) outside of their disciplines.

    Advice to Management

    They should hire experienced mangers from within or do away with the old hierarchy approach. The managers should be tested on their understanding of the process and their knowledge in the specific disciplines they are managing. There should also be an ethics evaluation concerning EHS issues.

    I have been working at Parkson Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice office and location in South Florida.. You will get useful experience here if you choose to take it on. Company gym onsite in a LEED Building.

    Cons

    Engineers are lowest on the totem pole here, they get no respect and are never rewarded for going above and beyond (even when asked), but are required to do everything. Employees can be very back stabbing, beware. Upper management is completely unstable and with four major layoffs in the past few years, everyone was on edge and morale was the worst I had ever seen...anywhere. "Project Managers" here are not real project managers, just office people that have been around for 8+ years and/or benefited from nepotism. If you are young and talented, run away. Do not waste your time unless you just need experience.

    Advice to Management

    Quit letting talent walk away because of non-recognition, non-promotion, and non-raises. You have a long track record of rewarding the wrong people.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, company values and coworkers makes your work easier and enjoyable.

    Cons

    No clear future based on the downsize of the market. Lack of R&D. POOR bonus after several years. NO salary increases at all!

    Advice to Management

    Change the business model for one more profitable. Share the pie more equally among the peers

    I worked at Parkson Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great city to live. I enjoyed the weather and the beaches, nice people in Fort Lauderdale area.
    If you want to experiment working in this industry and living there for a year or two, this can be a good choice.
    People are collaborative and welcoming.
    Good benefits and opportunity to take on a project for a couple of years.

    Cons

    There were lots o changes in management recently and it is uncertain what is the future of the company.
    If you are not an MBA the potential to get a higher management roles are very low.
    Technical expertise is not valued as much as business, which is a very narrow perspective that has lead to the shrinkage of the company.
    Most of people with experience are retiring or leave the company, reducing tremendously knowledge capital for Parkson.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce uncertainty about company's future by keeping open meetings with realistic results. Too much optimism has been the cause of current demotivation among employees.
    Promotion of recent hires with low technical expertise justified only b/c of MBA degree has a large impact on current employees, increasing the uncertainty and trust on Parkson. Gives the perspective that there is no professional development within Parkson.
