No room for advancement, top-heavy with management, poor pay
Field Technician (Former Employee), AlbertaMarch 1, 2016
Pros: some good staff, flexible with vacations/time off
Cons: terribly low pay, incompetent project managers, topheavy with management
Lowest paying company for entry-level environmental workers. Hard to survive on such a low salary. Top heavy with managers, not enough manpower in field at times. Minimal accountability by many employees, a lot only care about themselves. Some project managers and support staff are incompetent at what they do. Lots of the old boys club from Oconnor Associates is still employed here and refuse to adapt to the Parsons way of doing things, especially salary adjustments. The complete lack of integration between not only Parsons and O'Connor, but even between O'Connor and Delcan (Both acquired companies who work in the same office as "Parsons" - Many under the same roof don't even know each other or what they do)

job security often threatened at "slow times". Management makes workplace unpleasant at slow times so you are almost forced to use banked time. A lot of the work is nickel and dime jobs for large, overkill-on-safety clients

Pros are there are some diamonds in the rough, good people to work with. Good place to gain good entry level experience. If another opportunity is presented to you go that way and don't look back, this place has no room for advancement in position, challenge, or especially pay.

Engineers treat CAD Technologists like slaves.
