Locally, an amazing company to work for.
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMFebruary 3, 2016
Great projects, great environment, Locally amazing management. Global management is by publically traded company, meaning the bottom line trumps great people. co-workers are the best in the business and always did their best and that shows in their projects.
Pros
Free Soda, decent healthcare
Cons
no bonuses for common employees.

Principal Engineer (Former Employee) –  Perth, WAJanuary 6, 2016
Not much work to go around when I was there.
Colleagues where the best and my direct manager was the best.
Getting busy and finding something to do was the hardest part.

Administrator (Former Employee) –  Sydney, NSWNovember 22, 2015
I was only at Parsons Brinckerhoff for a week on year 10 work experience. I learned that there is a lot of work that goes into being part of a company. I was trained to write capability statements and project sheets, call clients, draft field verification reports, read contracts to look at liability, format CV’s and organise folders and catalogues and perform other administration work. Overall the management was lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed working with a team and experiencing workplace formalities for the first time.
Pros
Knowledge and experience

Administrative Support (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 17, 2015
The Dallas office is in a good location accessible to various freeways with covered parking. This office participates in several fund raising activities quarterly. Continued education is available with no charge through PB University(must be approved by manager). Red tape and politics is prevalent, but this is expected of a big company.

Terrible Company - at least in non-U.S. arenas
na (Current Employee) –  naJune 7, 2015
Poor upper management, poor communication, structure too segmented, many inept and unqualified people. Company is cheap, IT support and knowledge base is comical - offices are cheap, dirty, scant on necessary resources.
This company makes money because they have an old reputation they ride off of, and because they work on sluggish, big dollar projects; but the company, atmosphere, management, overall work quality is 20 years behind the curve.
Pros
Pay is decent
Cons
Everything you could think of

Good place to learn - Big projects - Lot of Experienced People
Business Analyst - Power Sector (Current Employee) –  Dubai, DUJune 5, 2015
PB is really very nice place to work. There are really big flagship projects in PB which makes it so special in the whole construction consulting industry.

Management is really good with very old school of thoughts in their minds of doing the business. But they are successful in doing so and its really good for the company & the employees.

Its one of the best place to work within Middle east.
Pros
Good Learning, Experienced people, Exposure to Big Program Management & Project Management Jobs, Big brand Name in Middle East
Cons
Nothing as such

Used to be great but no more
Senior Vice President - Operations Planning (Current Employee) –  Newark, NJMay 22, 2015
When I first started at PB in 1996, it was an enjoyable, family like company. As the new owners took control in 2009 (Balfour Beatty at the time,) the culture began to change. Expensive hiring of so called "highly compensated" business development executives resulted in there so called experts delivering nothing, eating up overhead and productive department budgets being cut, perks eliminated and severe restrictions of training and development as a result of their incompetence. The only item that mattered to "Executive Management," was profit, at all costs and at the expense of qualified staff. And they all seem to wear "toupees!" Vindictive behavior by these so called "industry giants" recently hired resulted in the best and brightest staff to leave.
The other complaint is the lack of ethics and honor by the administrative managers; constant gossip, prying into employees private lives and retaliatory behavior. These managers cannot be trusted.
It was a good place to work but not anymore.
Pros
Salaries and benefits start out as good.
Cons
Negative culture, cut throat management, vindictive leadership
