Highway Inspector (Former Employee) –  DohaJuly 3, 2019
Parsons International is one of the best consulting company in the World being in the construction industry long time ago. It has projects in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe, South and North America, and other places where their expertise are needed. Parsons International engaged in various development such as in roads, bridges, and highway construction; micro-tunneling for sewer and water lines; oil and gas; airports and terminals; and other horizontal and vertical projects.

Parsons International is very much concerned about the safety of its employees, contractors and sub-contractors, the public, especially the environments. Management is excellent especially in paying salaries on time. For my more than 5 years in the company, I did not experience a late salary but always on time or ahead.

Document Controller/ Secretary (Former Employee) –  Doha QatarJune 3, 2019
The day to day you will regularly encounter at work is a high demand for quality and standard.

Having said that, you will learn a lot from it in due course of time that is very beneficial to your career growth.

Management treats their employees with a proper decorum that you will feel like you are as important to them.

Colleagues highly follow what is in our Company protocol towards proper ethics regardless of your position, culture, and religion.

Basically, the hardest part of the job is the stage where you are in your adjustment period. About the work itself, I could say the most difficult task is the easy task but it becomes difficult only because you are overwhelmed by it like everything are urgent.

The most enjoyable yet fulfilling feelings are the challenges and the fulfillment of your goals and a bunch of lessons learned and the people who help you to be a better and more mature individual in your career.
Pros
The Engineers showing good vibes. Acknowledging every department that excels, Seniors give free lunch once a month during the first 2 years or so of the Project.
Cons
Sometimes is the result of inevitable circumstances

Document Control Manager (Current Employee) –  DohaJanuary 22, 2019
It was my honor to be part of the Doha Metro Project in State of Qatar since June 2015 to present. Have learned the design stage, Construction, Testing and Commissioning and now we are in stage of Handover. Being in this project I learned and advanced my skills in many aspects as far as technical.
The most enjoyable part of the day is when we are hit with many urgent submissions and they all have to be submitted at certain time and there is no delays from our end.
Management is highly motivated to include the co-workers.

Parsons was a Great Company but not in QATAR
Construction Manager (Former Employee) –  DohaOctober 3, 2018
After desigion to leave and going back to my country I got a excellent offer for another Company in Qatar for double salary, but Parsons did not allowed and did not give me NOC. This was not as per human wrights. Also the Program Director was working only for his benefits, not for Parsons itself.
