    Pros

    Marketplace for the environmental business is changing and although large, Parsons is trying to position itself better by using some cash to purchase other companies in businesses that they see expanding in the future. The retirement plans are good

    Cons

    Work is cyclic and it is important to develop contacts in other Parsons offices to navigate the slow times.

    Advice to Management

    Adapting to the marketplace is very important. More of a challenge for a large company, but ihopefully your efforts will pay off.

  2. Helpful (1)

    Parsons is a once great company that is standing on the precipice to fall unless it changes its culture and structure

    Pros

    A lot of talented, smart, accomplished people who are professional, highly skilled and hard working. Their greatest asset is the quality of the 10,000 + people who have every talent imaginable.

    Cons

    The various divisions are not well integrated, and where there are great opportunities for data sharing, integration and cross functional team building, these go unfulfilled because of the disparate management systems and lack of communication and organization. Also management has a short term ROI perspective with a lack of a long term vision and focus on organizational and data optimization development improvement to best grow and develop business for their various markets.

    Advice to Management

    Parsons is not growing for many reasons but the main problem is lack of management direction and vision. Also management has a short term ROI perspective with a lack of a long term vision and focus on organizational and data optimization development improvement to best grow and develop business for their various markets. If they make an effort to better integrate the various management systems, they would be better able to develop cross-functional and inter-divisional project management, target better long term market opportunities and achieve better results in business development. There is a distinct lack of communication throughout the company and very little long term marketing vision and they are not taking advantage of its many strengths to grow the business instead of shrinking.
