    Pros

    Good working atmosphere with good infrastructure, well maintained design documents for references and good database of old projects.

    Cons

    I did not get complete exposure to the complete project cycle. I was only doing assignments and was never in touch with Customers and Vendors hence the learning and experience was very limited.

    Advice to Management

    The management should allow individuals to get more exposure for a complete project cycle.

    Pros

    Company has very high standards of Ethics and Compliance. Very strong on Values. Definitely Safety is the first criteria to be considered above all. Lot of growth opportunities within the organization but to specific group of people and many others may find it otherwise. Excellent work culture. No wonder professionals have been continuing for so many years with the Organization. I worked for just 7 years.

    Cons

    Top management may not be aware of all the happenings outside of US. Definitely the work culture and the way of doing business is fast changing with new senior management people hired in many locations outside US. Company wants to grow and expand but at what costs? Doesn't care for senior professionals who have worked with the company for so many years, Management easily lets them go. There's nothing wrong in growth and bringing a change but will that be sustainable. I don't think anyone thinks about the knowledge bank and sustainable growth of the Organization anymore. High time for Top management to wake up and get involved in business outside US.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't be satisfied with the reasoning from Senior Management outside of US for all the policies, procedures and happenings but try and seek feedback from the middle level and other relevant professionals outside of US.

    Pros

    Black and Veatch is a nice MNC for the sector of energy and power. There is good chance of travelling around the globe and the fellow employees are very nice at Pune, India office.

    Cons

    Salary, which is offered by Black & Veatch, is slightly less as compared to other MNCs and rules for the dress and language is very strict. In india, they don't hire freshers from the leading technical institute IITs, so they are legging behind in quality employees in the company, although there were a bunch of remarkable brain sitting there in the Black & Veatch but IITs should not be ingored as far as India is concerned.

    Advice to Management

    In a short span I didn't get enough time to get in touch with management team but I guess there is lack of innovation in Black & Veatch. So, I suggest some innovative program must be conducted within the company, where employees can improve their skills.
