An all-inclusive list of the Pros of being a Black & Veatch professional are too numerous to list, but here are my favorites: *Opportunity to work alongside the Industry's top talent and experts... to have an impact on world-changing projects that provide critical human infrastructure (Clean Power, life-sustaining Water, essential Telecommunications, and more). *Job security and growth opportunities - There is a huge demand for our services in the markets and clients we serve. *100% Employee-Owned company with company-provided contributions to Employee Stock Ownership Plan account. *Great total compensation package: Includes base salary + cash bonuses + company 401k match + Employee Stock Ownership Plan distributions + medical/dental/insurance benefits + more. *Work/Life Balance - Flexible work schedules including ability to work from home (or anywhere) 2 days per week, flexible work hours, 9/80 schedule (every-other Friday off). *Vacation and Holidays - 10.5 paid holidays per year, new-grads start at 3 weeks vacation, 4 weeks paid parental bonding leave, and more. *Committed to creating and sustaining diverse, equitable and inclusive work environments. Able to work with professionals across the country and globe that have a diverse set of backgrounds and personal experiences.
Black and Veatch has the same challenges that I am sure many other large companies must continually strive to overcome and sometimes things move slow, or at least not as quickly as one would like.... B&V has made progress, but needs to keep striving to push decision making lower in the organization to allow us to be more nimble and responsive. Even with a few challenges associated with working in a large organization, the overall benefits of a large organization far exceed any drawbacks. It is a luxury (and huge competitive advantage) to have the resources and experts internally to solve almost any problem that may come up on a project.
Best people to work with in a super cool creative environment. To grow professionally here you really have to be an independent worker. Flexible schedule, exciting events regularly. Meet new people,... wonderful networking opportunities.
There can be slow times depending on your position. Hard to get on the same page as everyone. It feels like people just say and do the safe thing because no one wants to make the wrong bold move.
