Sr. Project Accountant (Former Employee) –  Overland Park, KSMay 16, 2017
Horrible management in the finance department for corporate and telecom. Project managers did not know how to supervise or motivate people. Encouraged back stabbing and reporting to managers what others would say.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNMay 8, 2017
typical day varied
learned marketing functions
workplace culture was pleasant
the hardest part of the position was that the network of other Admin were in different time zones, and it made it difficult to get answers quickly.
I enjoyed the engineering functions I performed

Paid well however a frustrating work culture
Tech (Current Employee) –  Denver, COApril 25, 2017
Who knew drafting and designing would be so cut-throat? The structure promotes a backstabbing mentality and rewards bad behavior regularly. Every one wants to be the "boss" but no one has the knowledge or leadership skills. There is no "open door" policy, everything is swept under the rug. Extremely frustrating.
Pros
Flexible Schedule
Cons
The general mentality

Corporate company with variable job markets
Civil Engineering (Current Employee) –  Overland Park, KSApril 17, 2017
B&V is a large, corporate company in energy, water, telecommunications and special/federal projects. There are lots of politics involved in daily work. Compensation is fantastic, helping to balance the management disorganization. Variable work in many groups.
Pros
Compensation, paid OT
Cons
Company culture, variable work

How many different times can I say that this should NOT be part of the Indeed process - I feel it is very biased and impartial and puts everyone in jeopardy

Lead Material Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Cerritos, CAApril 4, 2017
Lots of Beuracracy at this company and not enough stability at times. Great to work if you are looking to gain experience. Some great people and a great environment with the exception of bad attitudes from time to time.

Kansas City Mentality Rules Global Company

The leadership in KC is out of touch with major markets across the country/world. Vast amounts of business left on the table, growth is underwhelming.

Management is blind.

no security in the job
ENGINEERING TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXFebruary 21, 2017
a typical day in there was something looking forward everyday with the exception of seeing people just not appear the next day.
management was always changing, and always getting different set of instructions,
the hardest part of the job was not understanding how smokers have more privileges and stay longer then those that don't smoke and got more work done...
Pros
great pay for the type of work
Cons
no job security

Worker (Current Employee) –  Overland Park, KSFebruary 2, 2017
If you're looking for somewhere to start your career, this might be a good place. If you already have a career, don't even think about this place. They will suck you dry and toss you out. If you see positive reviews here, they were posted by B&V HR.
Pros
Pay is below market but not too bad
Cons
Everything else

Process Engineer (Current Employee) –  Kansas CityJanuary 29, 2017
The system is broken in the oil and gas division. A few are chosen to be in the express lane towards promotion and lead positions. The rest of process engineers are left to bite the dust.
