I worked at Black & Veatch full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

large company, great benefits, school reimbursement, credit union

Cons

if your weren't an engineer you didn't feel very important, in a department of say 10 people there were 3 or 4 bosses

Advice to ManagementAdvice

treat everyone as if they are important because without them you'd be overwhelmed yourself

    I worked at Black & Veatch full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    9/80 work schedule, free coffee once a year (yeah), peanuts in increment (so generous)

    Cons

    I worked for this company for over 4 years as Electrical Power Delivery Engineer, Energy Division. All went well until new department manager took over the office. The company policy encourages diversity, visa sponsorship etc. However, this manager just taking advantage of his position harrases employees on their visa requirement. Employees are bulleyed, refused opportunities etc. Something shocking to see in this industry. Hope the HR / Management takes some action if they want to see the department to grow. This is just a word of caution to those who need visa sponsorship. There are tonnes of companies sponsoring the visa. Do not spoil your future in this department. This company has no projects lined up except some feed projects. Please be careful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and take action against such people if you need to see your company to grow.
