    Pros

    There aren't any Pros to working at B&V. The job, office environment/culture, and clerical administrative assignments will stunt your career as an engineer.

    Cons

    Cronyism, manipulative, back stabbers, clicks, aggressive, very bad office culture, egomaniacs, zero training, HR turns a blind eye, top management is negligent and clueless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to be decent and respectful to those who work hard to support lead engineers and engineering managers. Company preaches living quality behaviors and values yet does nothing about the bad employees in the company who create misery in the office. Company and phony supervisors should be reported to the board of engineers.
