Company gets the projects but management was not well qualified people
Assistant Resident Engineer (Former Employee) –  Abu DhabiAugust 16, 2019
We were considered as field staff and they are not treated as permanent company employees. Poorly managed project. Higher staff was hired thru client's recommendation. They do not necessarily have the proper qualifications or the skills to understand the staff's concerns.

Program Cost Manager (Former Employee) –  Abu DhabiNovember 10, 2018
Parsons is similar to Bechtel but not quite as sophisticated and organized. It often depends on the Business line the employee is working for. I would rate Bechtel somewhat higher than Parsons.
Pros
Salary good, working conditions good
Cons
not as sophisticated as Bechtel, Still highly relevant in todays engineering and construction business

Cons
get used to working very late hours and weekends

Challenging multi-cultural work environment
SENIOR URBAN DESIGNER / ARCHITECT (Current Employee) –  DubaiMarch 4, 2018
My typical day starts with reading and responding to emails, followed by delegating work to staff and short discussions with team members.

I have learned how the company functions and its core structure. I have provided support to the management from assisting the business development with proposals and bid documents.

The management has recently gone through a major change. It has become more streamlined, giving more responsibilities and a sense of ownership of the projects being undertaken.

It is a multi-cultural workplace where language is not necessarily an issue. However cultural differences sometimes create uncomfortable circumstances that are often resolved among team members.

Difficult Clients and short deadlines are the most challenging parts of the job. At the end of the day the goal must always be to deliver a quality product.

The most rewarding part of the job is always Client satisfaction. Positive responses from the Client ensures a continues and healthy relationship.
Pros
Excellent Salary
Cons
Long hours and work pressure
