Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) – Herndon, VA – October 9, 2015
This was a good place to work. Able to have fun and get a wide variety of knowledge in different fields. Managers are not always engaging. The company as a whole does not mesh well with other offices around the world. In all, good local office, but if you want to work with/in other offices around the world it becomes extremely difficult.
Civil Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – March 21, 2017
Worked as an intern for a few months back in 2015. Seemed to be plenty to help with, learned a lot about real-world engineering (since I was still going to school at the time). Nice clean, modern office, but working in an office isn't my cup of tea.
Water Resources Project Engineer II (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – March 15, 2017
The water services group functioned as an internal consultant to other groups within PB. Lots of opportunities to work on very innovative and challenging projects across states and internationally. Loved the flexibility and open-mindedness and general culture. Employees were not pigeon-holed to work in one field of expertise.
Drafter (Former Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – February 19, 2017
I learn to use MicroStation program, I used to work for several Engineers, It was a good place to work, we were a team, the manager was very high knowledge, very respectful and I tried to produce as much as I could. My hardest part was to get up so early because I started working at 6:30 AM. The most enjoyable part of the job was to submit the projects complete and on time.

Coop Engineer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 1, 2016
The typical day is 8 hours. I have learned a ton in my time there. Management is great, they know how to manage a project. Co-workers are great, very detailed oriented. Hardest part of the job is not having more autonomy. Most enjoyable part of the project is looking once the project is complete.
A great deal of leeway and freedom is given to employees, however this is balanced out by significant expectations and carefully keeping track of what you are working on. The combination of flexible scheduled and the occasional looming deadline makes the balance of work and life an exorcise in extremes at times.
Project Controller (Former Employee) – QA – February 27, 2016
Although highly professional, the working environment at Parsons is very robotic. Employees are only willing to meet expectations with no effort to exceed them in terms of quality and efficiency. Being a person who is very passionate about his career, I found this environment as not suitable for learners and achievers.
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – February 3, 2016
Great projects, great environment, Locally amazing management. Global management is by publically traded company, meaning the bottom line trumps great people. co-workers are the best in the business and always did their best and that shows in their projects.

A challenging position allowing me the opportunity to help a large amount of people.

Administrative Support (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 17, 2015
The Dallas office is in a good location accessible to various freeways with covered parking. This office participates in several fund raising activities quarterly. Continued education is available with no charge through PB University(must be approved by manager). Red tape and politics is prevalent, but this is expected of a big company.
