    I have been working at Black & Veatch full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Big company with many opportunities to move around the six divisions. They are supportive and want their employees to grow and gain lots of experience. Value your input and encourage problem solving solutions. strong core values

    Cons

    Often hired as a contingent employee rather than direct hire. The company culture is very conservative feeling a bit stale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    create more of a team environment, more opportunities for training and certificate/education compensation.
