    I have been working at Black & Veatch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Black & Veatch provides a decent salary along with decent perdiem rates for their field based professionals.

    While control and direction exists, I've never felt like there is someone looking over my shoulder or trying to micromanage a job I am working on.

    I've always been provided what I needed to finish a job when I asked for it. They do a very good job of making sure projects get finished on time and properly, an important thing for a project based company.

    Cons

    The year end review system here is more of a waste of time than anything else. Other than a few top performers all people get basically the same year end score, regardless of effort, results, experience, etc.

    Upper management (and apparently the CIO as well) don't like new technology, or maybe they are just afraid of it. The company is always way behind the curve on upgrading to new hardware or software solutions. It's 2012 and they just started providing field personal with cheap smart phones.
