    I have been working at Black & Veatch

    Pros

    Good opportunities for advancement
    Great pay
    Competitive benefits package
    Good company name recognition (could be beneficial if you choose to pursue a position with another company)

    Cons

    Management frequently out of touch with true level of effort required to complete projects.
    Work/life balance "preached" but not "practiced" by a significant number of employees resulting ultimately in young emloyees burning themselves out and seeking lower-stress opportunities elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on employee training as we go through a period of rapid growth. Develop a program (training or an "advertising campaign") to help employees strike a better work/life balance.

    I worked at Black & Veatch

    Pros

    Flexibility in setting working hours

    Cons

    Mgmt for team I was on didn't know how to encourage people so they would do a good job - everyone trying to get hired and culture was fear of being let go
    Very behind the times in sharing information
    Minimal training and job aids

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put some focus on sharing information using SharePoint - this will help with the turnover coming up to speed quicker
