I have been working at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

There is a strong sense of community among colleagues and the culture is more open than many corporate environments. Compensation is competitive.

Cons

The organzation is top heavy with senior staff, despite a push to engage and hire recent graduates or young professionals.

    I worked at Parsons Brinckerhoff full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work-life balance
    Great steady work-flow if you're part of the core business (design, engineering for highways, bridges and transit)

    Cons

    Culture is old-school; lacking innovation, new energy and creativity
    Lacking diversity among senior management; hardly any women and minorities at the upper echelons of the company
    Upper Management needs to be comprised of mindsets that are more about leadership and management and less about engineering
    Advancement opportunities don't come easily
    Difficult to find manager who will actually mentor you, champion you and help you grow
    No consistent, transparent performance review process and system on which merit increases are based

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read Sheryl Sandberg's book. Change compensation structure. Institute a solid talent acquisition, development and retention system. Cultivate a culture of developing leaders (and not just in the technical sense).
