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

Pros

The regional offices feel like small companies with the support and technical expertise of a corporation

Cons

Things definitely move slowly, including requests for promotions and salary reviews. It's a little disheartening to see your efforts apparently go unnoticed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start taking your staff seriously and reward them accordingly. Be proactive about rewarding underpaid talent.

    I have been working at Black & Veatch full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There were no pros of working for this company.

    Cons

    The Federal Division is located in a "sick building". The ventilation system is extremely old and they won't replace it. Everyone is sick all the time in this building. The management are terrible and extremely unprofessional and create a very hostile work environment. The finance department had a 75% turnover in the 18 months I worked there! You don't want to work there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the managers. Teach them that it is extremely inappropriate to walk around asking, "Who can I fire today? A hostile work environment is created when managers are flipping the bird at their employees and making derogatory comments on a regular basis. Employees don't want to stay where they are treated with such disrespect!

    I have been working at Black & Veatch full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large company with lots of opportunities to pursue your preferences.
    I feel very secure in my employment.
    I've become trusted and valued in my area of expertise.

    Cons

    Great place to work if they offer you a full time position. Avoid contract work offers, as they have no intention of keeping you.
