Black & Veatch Careers & Info

Current CEO: Steve Edwards

Status: Active

Black & Veatch started as a business partnership in 1915 in Missouri. The original partner of Earnest Bateman Black was a man named J.S. Worley. Worley left the partnership in favor of contracting with the government, and Black began to think of who might be able to fill his position. He approached Nathan Thomas Veatch, whom he had met at the University of Kansas. Veatch accepted the proposal for a partnership, and they began working together shortly afterwards. During the first year of operations, the partnership obtained two major contracts. The company has continued working with the government during the preparations for various wars.

The principle civilian business conducted by Black and Veatch were projects related to power and water supplies in the Midwest regions of the United States. They were also involved in railroad design as well as construction. The various industries affected by the contract work of Black and Veatch include the War Department, water treatment plants, the railroad, and the gas and oil industry.

In 1999, the company changed its business formation from the general partnership structure that it had maintained for nearly a century. The new business structure took many by surprise; it was transformed into an “employee-owned corporation.” This innovation has been warmly welcomed by the working population, and it has contributed a considerable amount of success to the company’s overall performance. The prospect of working at such a company has been a magnet to highly trained and skilled employees who may be thinking about Black and Veatch careers. Additional Black & Veatch benefits include competitive salaries in addition to several other key programs, which include:

• Health, Dental and Vision
• Paid holidays, sick leave
• Employee discounts
• Referral bonus programs
• Flexible scheduling

Working at Black & Veatch is a very unique experience for new employees with a corporate background. The company provides an environment that is responsive to the needs of its employees. It is important to notice that although the structure is quite unique, the Black & Veatch culture is still built on large contracts. The company started expanding to other countries around the world since 1963 through the creation of Black & Veatch International.
