Does Black & Veatch offer family leave?

Pros

Flexible work schedule knowledgeable direct managers

Cons

Upper Management considers you a number and nothing else I have literally see them layoff people on maternity leave... The benefits are terrible for insurance You have to work here for 3 years before your 401k is vested which they conveniently fail to mention upon hiring Vacation time is sub par for market standard (takes 5 years to get to 3 weeks) They literally made me train my replacement before laying me off with no backup position available, it was utterly humiliating For all of their ASPiRE values they push so rigorously, I found it embarrassing they still have the nerve to treat each individual with such a lack of respect. Their entire telecom division is a sham, they just ship everything out of office over to India, I do not know why any companies would ever work with them, let alone people wanting to work for such a toxic culture.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees as human beings instead of numbers on a spreadsheet.
