      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Great projects; long history; consistent misuse of taxpayer's money;

      Cons

      At the firm, it was criminal to be innovative; learn anything new or even write a paper; the bosses are too concerned with their bonuses; politics at its worst; systematically lie and cheat the client. That is the way of the firm.

      Advice to Management

      Eventually, you will pay for it...

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      I got an office, even though I was junior. My boss was nice, and there were some women in higher positions.

      Cons

      Salary wasn't great. Company expected you to work on many holidays, and even get to work in a blizzard or take a vacation day. They closed the office at times and forced employees to take a vacation day.

        Negative Outlook
        No opinion of CEO

        I have been working at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Nothing, crap pay, not enough workers to be able to put in for PTO.

        Cons

        No pay raises, no bonuses, our management steals our holiday pay and switches our pay to reflect just regular hours from OT. My boss laughs when asked about raises or bonuses. We all have a feeling our boss is aloes money for pay raises and bonuses but we have never seen a dime of neither.

        Advice to Management

        Out of touch, selfiah
