    I worked at Black & Veatch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally a good company infrastructure for an engineering firm.

    Cons

    Telecom, at least the Turf project, is actually run by the field organization. The central leadership does not have the industry background nor management ability to rein in the Turf Directors. Penny wise and pound foolish. Not strategic (no, not really).

    Advice to Management

    Be in charge. If you think something sounds wrong or fishy, it is. Don't make your judgments on how well a turf is doing by how much money it brings in, judge it by how much it promised it would bring in vs what it does. The opportunity cost of allowing free rein to the Turf Directors is about 40% again of what they bring in.
