You feel the management is your enemy, they like to play the blame game, it's never a collaborative work. Each person to himself.
The Salaries are project based, so if you don't have a Job Number to charge , you won't get paid. So the management they use this advantage over their employees , you need to beg for a job, and each director or project manager, keeps any Job Number to himself, or to his " favorite" employees. So instead of focusing on your work, and to do it smartly and as fast as you can, people will try to delay submissions and work slowly so they can keep charging the project.

This is a small example of what type of environment this company has.

It's a shame to have all these talented and highly driven people , and not taking advantage of them.

I don't see a bright future for Parsons in the UAE, specially not Dubai.

Oh and we worked for 48hours/week, 9.5hours/day.
Pros
Made tons of friends
Cons
Long hours, toxic environment

Management, at least in my department (QS/Commercial), is very supportive of its employees. Performance goals, set by employees, are being discussed periodically with management to ensure that they are achieved. Monthly lunch, and dinner, get-together are always fun times.
Pros
Good health insurance provided for by the company. 30 days paid annual leave.

Parsons is a Prestige company with iconic projects in many regions/ countries of the world. I am working on a unique project (Dubai Metro - Route2020). The project has multi-discipline specialist professionals from all over the world in a friendly and respectful environment. Management supports the employer to a certain level but not full support. annual increment is very low and not equal to the living expenses increase.
the hardest part of the job as the nature of the project base organization is at the end of the project and relocate the teams to another project to keep them for the long term.

The overall atmosphere is very professional and friendly. But work life balance is not good at all. Late office sitting is much appreciated in the company.

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.
