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

    Pros

    Everyone I worked with was very smart, competent and friendly. The company has good respect for work-life balance. Because many employees stay around for decades, they really care about your well being.

    Cons

    It's a big company and sometimes it's bureaucratic. Also, when I worked there you only got 10 days PTO + national holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your younger employees to get a better sense for what they need in terms of compensation and growth opportunities.

    I worked at Black & Veatch full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    B&V is known *primarily* for its design engineering and construction services to the public utilities industries. It's an outstanding firm for anyone who wants to build a career in those *and related* industries.

    There are many other career opportunities within B&V, but one *must* be mindful of the firm's primary focus and vector.

    Cons

    One must almost certainly have P. E. following one's name! Sans that, one must be braced to settle for a second best career.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, as Mr. Veatch and his founding Partners did.
