Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Parsons is a very good company in terms of productivity, professionalism, career growth and being self reliant (confidence). You get a sense of belonging as an employee and team work is a strength that serves as back bone of operation, not forgetting the absolute coordination and well organized atmosphere that makes it appealing. However, the salary is meagre and barely enough to cater for your needs or justify your working for a reputable company. To make it worse, there is no job security, everyone is disposable. The company’s recruiter operates like a “mafia”, they prefer to take new people because of incentives attached, 500$ for new employee, than retaining their best people for the job.

Good Company with Bad Representation in Gulf

The culture of corporate in the Gulf is constricting and does not provide much of an opportunity for growth to young professionals, Parsons is no exception.

Pros

Collabrative work culture

Cons

Little to no chance in career progression

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

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.
