Featured Review

Former Employee - Mechanical Engineer

I worked at Black & Veatch full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Some excellent and talented technical staff, and the opportunity to work on significant Water Projects around the world

Cons

Always felt very US centric, "unless you were born in the US don't expect senior management to listen to you, you're a commodity". Local Management appear to be very focused on self rather than... what's best for the company or their staff.

Advice to Management

Get in or get out - if you're serious about doing business in Australia, back the business up and support the local business in winning work, even in tough times - if not shut the business down and... get out.
