    I worked at Parsons Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Good place to learn if you are young. Early career promotions excellent for 3-10 years of experience.

    Cons

    Older workers not treated as assets.

    It's all good if you were brought in by a buddy who works there. It's all about who you know not what you know. The louder you talk, the more promotions you get.

    Be prepared to market yourself and your skills or you'll need to consider transfers to offices that have work to stay employed.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent.

    I have been working at Parsons Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stable... or was. The people are friendly.

    Cons

    Don't expect anyone to want to push your career forward. No management reviews, just the typical 3% annual raise. Technology doesn't move fast within Parsons. A lot of senior employees are stuck in their old ways, "don't fix what's not broken" attitude. The IT department is just now investing in cloud computing. Jumping onboard with the SalesForce bandwagon. A lot of layoffs within the past two years. The company is struggling to keep cash flowing, selling off many of their assets to stay afloat. It's anyone's bet what will happen in the next ten years.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees about their drives and how they can contribute
