Great Company But Needs to Strive for More than Mediocrity

Mechanical Engineer III (Current Employee) Overland Park, KS

ProsBeing a large, global company there are opportunities to work throughout the world. There are ample opportunities to develop a strong career, especially those who remain flexible in the type and geographic location they are willing to work. Also, being a world class engineering firm, you have an opportunity to work on some of hte most challenging and rewarding projects in the world. They types of projects that are recognized throughout the world for their positive impact on the people.

ConsI am sometimes frustrated with the pace of change at the company. Upper management claims to strive to be one of the best engineering firms in the world yet when it comes to pay and benefits the "industry average" is often quoted for why some benefits are not offered.

The yearly performance evaluation process is frustarting to both managers and the rank-and-file.

Advice to Senior ManagementStrive to exceed the "industry average" to bring about faster change in the companies culture. Continue your commitment to building Black & Veatch into the best engineering firm in the world.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
