Parsons is employers of choice.

The top management treat us as number 1 asset of the company. I learned a lot from the online health, safety & environment training and management training every year. Top management is leading by good example. The hardest part of my job when an accident to one of my projects which i consumed a lot of time in finding the root cause of the accident. The enjoyable part of the job when the top management recognized our team when we completed our others without lost time accident.

Pros

Employees were so professional.

Very professional colleague, very family oriented, A class when it comes to Safety, plus a lot of Sports activities to join to.

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

Very Good

The typical day work includes site inspection, progress or technical meetings, safety inspection and regular visits to stakeholders. the work culture is amazing
Was this review helpful?

My personal work challenges ,experience and objectives

A typical day is the HSE weekly meeting when we sit together with our management and highlighted the challenge we encounter during the week and we all working as panel to solve the issues. Also, I have learned that always there are mechanism to overcome the challenges on through vital communication with concerned departments and use the safe easy working manner and "managements" skills and approach to accomplish the tasks. For workplace culture I have had experience due to course to dealing with diversity on multi-nationalities deployed on workplaces and how I can manage the working environment to produce safe system of work by coordinating with construction team, HSE team and other involved personnel's at workplaces. The hardest part of my job that I have faced is related to Contractor's management commitment towards their HSE obligations as I have always maintained the efforts to improve their HSE culture where is needed. The most enjoyable part of my job when we achieved our HSE objectives for instance achieve 5 Million safe man hours without injury.

Great place to work

I have been working at Make Positive full-time (more than 5 years) Great people at all levels of the company - everyone is supportive of each other and has a great time together in accomplishing the mission. The CEO,President and Management team are highly Motivated which brings much positive energy in the whole team. This is the definition of what a team should be. I have never come across such company who has all the great qualities of Culture, Management, Career Advancement and Selfless people under a same roof.

Pros

Great atmosphere and place to further your career. Cons

Cons

Location is great, and atmosphere is phenomenal.

Installation of lighting fixtures

Everyday I performed an usual task to inspect all works in the site. What I have learned is that we should be patience whenever challenges comes out of your task. Even the management will work with you hand in hand. In a task which involves different nationalities we should be respectful with each other with regards to our own work ethics and culture. The hardest part of a job is when some of your colleagues have a different opinion on what you are doing. But the most enjoyable is when you finally realized the hard works pay off.

Pros

Friendly management

Cons

Rude contractor
