    I worked at BE&K as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people who I worked with. My boss was thoughtful and always available to help out. Good place to get some experience with my engineering degree straight out of college.

    Cons

    Because of my intro level role I got stuck doing a lot of busy work that others didn't want to do. I didn't see many opportunities for growth in my role, so went looking elsewhere. Seemed to be more a function of my specific role than the company itself, however.

    I have been working at BE&K

    Pros

    Upper management communication to mid-level managers is consistent and open. Salary rates and benefits are very competetive.

    Cons

    Bought out by KBR. The transition from privately held to public is a real eye-opening experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the Building Group way.

    I worked at BE&K

    Pros

    I was always treated fairly and was always given expanded responsibilities as my experience grew. I never felt like i had to negotiate in order to grow. I just came with experience and of course, performance.

    Cons

    KBR's involvement as a overseer and approach to risk management, because they are a public entity may limit future pursuits and opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get too wrapped up in your own career growth at the expense of your subordinates. They are how you grow and advance.
