    I worked at Black & Veatch

    Pros

    Very well organized program that was tailored for the interns.

    Cons

    If you are not an engineer, you can feel left out of many of the intern activities and programs. It is a massive company with so many bureaucratic processes to got through that makes doing things very difficult.

    Pros

    Many of the employees are passionate about, knowledgeable, and very good at what they do.

    Cons

    The department I worked in, along with other departments, are very disorganized. It's a 'good ol' boy' network and many of the upper and middle management people weren't very qualified for their positions.

    Pros

    Black and Veatch has a long history in the renewable energy industry with a great reputation among developers and financial institutions. Very well educated and stable workforce with decades of experience withing the industry. Employee owned company. Good work/life balance. Good opportunities to grow your career in different technologies.

    Cons

    Each employee is responsible to find work within the company pipeline to fill their weekly time sheet. Any self improvement efforts must be approved in advance. There is no per diem for projects that require long term deployment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't rely on your supervisors so much to determine if your employees are satisfied with their jobs.
