Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer III in Overland Park, KS
Approves of CEO

Pros

The company is diversified and has work in many areas. They have a lot of good electronic tools and standards that make doing the work easy. There are many mid and senior-level employees with excellent knowledge of the industry, and that makes B&V a good learning environment for a recent graduate. There are many training opportunities, too.

Cons

Good luck NOT getting pigeon-holed. You waste a lot of time doing "People FIRST" or whatever they are calling their career development tool these days, but no one really cares what you want to do. They will put you where they want you regardless of your career aspirations.

Advice to Management

Actually listen to your employees and make it easier for people to get into the positions that they want to be in.
