    I have been working at Black & Veatch as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours (9/80 schedules), which means you have the option to have every other Friday off. There's also opportunity to change departments and discover your passion within the company.

    Cons

    Unclear career trajectory. They also seemed to have played up the potential to travel internationally a little more than what realistically happens to the typical employee.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up good treatment of interns! Should work well for employee retention.

    I have been working at Black & Veatch full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Top two Pros would be Steady flow of projects and Very competitive compensation. It is an Ethical company which will make you feel proud of. Its a worldwide establishment so it helps to keep your opportunities open if that is what you are looking for.

    Cons

    Only Cons that I can see is that the Career progression is limited. Many employees have to work on same level for years without promotion, and the reason could be because the client project that the employee works on does not have that requirement of the promoted level. Also, there is limited work-life balance, especially if you are aiming for the career progression.

    Advice to Management

    Employees will like to get performance based career progression. That would be a great morale boost, knowing that they are being rewarded for their extra effort and as always long hours.
