I have been working at Black & Veatch as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

One of the number one engineering company

This is all based off of the telecom side

Cons

1. Have people breathing down your back
2. Dont like you find stuff that is wrong for construction. "Said I'm out of my job line" thought that what im there to do is to find something wrong and adress it when I think its wrong.
I could go on for days about how messed up the telcom is.

3. They want you to be robots and they think if ur not in your seat your goofing off when your answering questions even knowning the high ups tell people to come see me. I still get in trouble for talking too much when im answering a work questions that need to be explain out.
