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.

    Pros

    This company like a big school that provide the environment to teach you everything included technical knowledge, how to be a good professional, how to work as a team also provided a clear career development.

    Cons

    This company is a global worldwide company, sometimes since it is very big company some decision would need time to get it in action. But usually most of the thing is already in a good place.

    Advice to Management

    Not really have anything to advise management, I think they are in a good positioning. They have many levels of management and each level has a clear different role to manage which they are good in their roles.
