Employment Specialist at Black & Veatch

"Bad Business Practices / Ethics"

What do you like about working at Black & Veatch?

"Locations, standard benefits and pay, some opportunities to travel and work on location."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you have other viable options, suggest that you pass on B&V. They have a lot of internal issues and no resolutions in sight."

What don't you like about working at Black & Veatch?

"Too much politics, not enough open communication between management and their professionals and hard work. B&V has issues with business ethics as well (probably because of all the politics that goes on), and while their recruiters try to make them appear current, B&V is old school across the board (total good ol' boys club)."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Become better listeners, treat your professionals like you would like to be treated: open and honestly and with respect and dignity. Less ego, more putting the job first."
