    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.

    Eventually, you will pay for it...

    I worked at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time (More than 3 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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time (More than 3 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

    Pros

    Great company benefits
    Nice office
    The people, as with most companies, are what makes the place great.

    Cons

    Most Management is located in NY, which makes them detached from everything. They do not really know what goes on in the departments and their staff. Favoritism runs deep, playground tactics and unmonitored managers are left to do whatever they choose.

    Advice to Management

    Stop relying on what is told to you, and actually pay attention to what is going on. Find out if what you are being told is true, or if you are just being snowballed by a deceptive manager
