    I have been working at Parsons Brinckerhoff (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management promote from outside so great place to get a job.
    Lots of opportunities for those selected.
    Few highly dedicated technical professionals, so lots of opportunities to rise.
    Values the inexperienced especially at mid level management.

    Cons

    Driven by bottom line, so those with project management speak do well.
    Office is nearly empty at 4 pm so excellent work life balance, except the few dedicated technical proficient individuals who work long hours. So be careful not to become one of those.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the hard work.
    Continue to support the promotion of the talented.
    Continue to reward the managers and ignore the technical experts, it is the road to profit.
    Continue to drive into the ground the technical experienced, with low pay and restricted opportunities for promotion. more opportunities for the talented.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Parsons Brinckerhoff (Perth, Western Australia) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Poor, fairly informal and unprofessional experience at the Perth office. After hearing the interviewer spoke badly about the predecessor. It came across as very immature and rude - it would make you think what the interviewer is saying about you (if you were being hired to work under them). After saying that the interview would response at a specific time/day - this never happened. A generic response (for someone who has taken the time out to come to your Perth office) is appropriate. The interview left a bad taste and I am not clearly expecting employment at this stage. I thought the interview was a waste of time.
