I have been working at Black & Veatch full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

A positive attitude and strong work ethic will take someone to the top in a short time. I've personally recieved four promotions in five years. The company is filled with highly analytical people who work strategically for the benefit of the organization. There are lots of training opportunities and advancement possibilities for those who raise their hands. B&V cares about its people and works tirelessly to make sure people are treated ethically and fairly.

Cons

B&V, like other engineering company's, is a consulting firm. The drive to offer the best service to it's clients sometimes overshadows people appreciation initiatives. Not that people aren't important, but sometimes we're so busy getting the work done, we forget to celebrate our successes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management is conservative, fair, and ethical. However, an open door policy would benefit the organization greatly. Communication makes a difference, and B&V could learn more from not only treating everyone like they are special, but listening to what people have to say.
