On-site Customer Support
Direct Order Manager (DOM) (Current Employee) –  Annapolis Junction, MDAugust 9, 2017
Worked directly with the customer to provide strategic technical and process improvement plans and recommendations. Assisted with the development of a five to ten year technical strategy and vision board plan. Managed a team of six people (Parsons' employee and subcontractors). The work place has a blend of contractors and government customers. The hardest part of the job is balancing schedules between customers expectations and company meetings. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping the customer meet and exceed their deliverables and expectations.

Pros

they prefer to hire casual and work is lacking

Parsons is a great company to work for with the best people. Great opportunity to grow and be part of a team that gets the job done like no other. This is a company that also cares about its people.

Great job
Journeyman Welder/ Pipefitter (Former Employee) –  Aiken, SCAugust 1, 2017
Typical day at Parsons, weld pipe. I learned how to weld in a mirror. Management was usually fair. Workplace culture was relaxed but fast paced. The hardest part of the job was dealing with a sub-par fitter. The most enjoyable part of the job was the pay.
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Sub-par fitters from time to time

Overall a very good company to work for. Compensation is not as much as the competition. Work load is balanced and management is friendly. Co workers are friendly also.

Can be rewarding if in the right clicks
Senior Geologist, Environmental Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Mobile, ALJuly 11, 2017
Management is out of touch with lower level employees. Lack of development and training. If you don't have a job to work on, you get let go quickly. Always have to be project billable.
Pros
money
Cons
micromanagement, no training

project manager estimator (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJune 19, 2017
This was an exciting and professional experience for me and would recommend this company to others for the opportunity to be yourself and expand knowledge.
I learned how to communicate with a team to produce a well organized product.
The Hardest part was the it connections with software.

The most enjoyable part was working with others to gain the insight of what will be the best way to get the job done.
Pros
Teamwork
Cons
internet connections

I love the job itself, yet the people you many work with might change your opinion of the profession. Job itself is easy, the customers are interesting, management is ok. overall its a great place to gain experience in the automotive profession.
Pros
steady work

no room for advancement

good place to start a career
Project manager/engineer (Former Employee) –  Renton, WAMay 31, 2017
With Parsons working on the TSSC contract with the FAA I got to travel throughout much of the Northwestern states, including Alaska. The work was fun and satisfying (implementing new systems at airports to be used by general and commercial aviation). The room for growth is very limited though. There is no where to go with the TSSC contract. Most of the FAA customers are listless and are on medication for depression and other personality disorders it seems. They are obviously not to happy with their jobs.

Do not value your employees
Project Director (Former Employee) –  Bakersfield, CAMay 27, 2017
I was quick to learn there is no where to go once you're onboarded. Lack of leadership and minimal resources for clean project execution.

If you're not 100% billable, you may be looking from the outside in! Poor communication, zero integrity, and lack of support.


Hardest part of my job was locating critical staff to adequately staff. Poor culture and sufficient tools to support client needs and allow for efficient execution
