A good place to start, a bad place to stay

Mechanical Engineer III (Current Employee)
Overland Park, KS

ProsThe company is diversified and has work in many areas. They have a lot of good electronic tools and standards that make doing the work easy. There are many mid and senior-level employees with excellent knowledge of the industry, and that makes B&V a good learning environment for a recent graduate. There are many training opportunities, too.

ConsGood luck NOT getting pigeon-holed. You waste a lot of time doing "People FIRST" or whatever they are calling their career development tool these days, but no one really cares what you want to do. They will put you where they want you regardless of your career aspirations.

Advice to Senior ManagementActually listen to your employees and make it easier for people to get into the positions that they want to be in.
