Great work environment
Utilities Group - Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 19, 2018
BBI is a great work environment for anyone that wants to build a career for themselves. You need to put in the effort, but they are very supportive if you have the drive. They seem to continuously grow with the market needs, so change should be expected. They stay profitable and successful though.
Pros
Opportunity, flexible schedule, small company atmosphere
Cons

Did not get support from upper management
something (Former Employee) –  houstonOctober 24, 2018
Generally my time there was ok. Never got support from upper management to sell the product, which intern it ment we were loosing money. So my job was was always at stake. The owner would surely give clear indication of that when we had meetings with comments like you have to think your kids will not have food on the table.
Pros
9/80 work schedule, direct supervisor.
Cons
Have to stay billable, not much support from upper management

Productive yet non stressful
Engineer in Training (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 4, 2018
As long as you were persistent with productivity, the workload wasn't stressful or overbearing. As a whole, the time frame in which managers expected something from you was very reasonable and if I had questions, someone was able to answer them.

Great space to work
Designer (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 3, 2017
BBI is a great environment to work at. Everyone is very family oriented. It is very easy to have a life outside of work. Communication would be my only complaint. Managers may not tell you the whole story, which makes taking initiative difficult. And depending on which manager you have, there may be micro-managing(but that could be anywhere).
Pros
People, work environment, work life balance
Cons
Communication between departments
