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

Pros

The company has a vision for growth that is supported by a plan and funding. Management is focused on value based management which means that most events of any magnitude have a business case. The culture is friendly and professional. Very conservative. I like how proficiency matters and I have see more than a few employees with decades of experience still contributing. I like it here.

Cons

Not sure. Some people have complained that change has not occured fast enough in some areas but some of these complaints do not support a business case. In other words, I can think of a million ways to improve things but can we still make a profit after we pay for that change? There are some challenges with business alignment in terms of process and technology that need to be sorted but it isn't anything profound. And yes, people at Black&Veatch work hard - some do not care for the level of effort that is sometimes required or lack of control at the individual level. It's an engineering company designed to build macro projects - so it really isn't a place for rogue independents. This is a teaming environment.

Advice to Management

N/A. Solid profit margins, growth, good reputation in the industry = job security.
