Decent place to work, but don't expect to grow
Engineering Technician (Current Employee), Overland Park, KSApril 17, 2014
I was excited to be hired by B&V, but soon after I started working there, my view of the company was tarnished. They claim that you're in control of your career and they give the impression that you'll be able to move positions in order to advance your career. However, that was not my experience, nor the experience of any of my collegues that didn't – more... want to follow the line straight up their title (ie. going from Engineer III to IV, etc.). – less

Contract - Long waiting period to be hired perm
Closeout Administrator (Former Employee), San Diego, CAApril 11, 2014
Pros: nice office, nice people, centrally located
Cons: no advancement and if you're new, you have to start at the bottom and that's closeouts
Worked in the San Diego office for over 7 months waiting to be converted permanently while everyone else was having their paperwork processed. So one foot was already out the door then my supervisor who has no idea how to manage threatened me with my job. According to her findings, I wasn't closing out enough projects from the previous years. These – more... projects were horribly neglected and half of the backup documentation was missing. So how does one closeout a site without the proper backup? We were told to close them out anyway, only to have them rejected by corporate. It was a job going nowhere so I ended up leaving. Not worth staying when you have no idea when your last day will be. Overall, good company to work for if you are already permanent and NOT in closeouts. It's a horrible dept to be in. – less

Great place to work; advancement opportunities for a select few
Electrical Design Engineer (Former Employee), Denver, COMarch 19, 2014
Pros: very structured as to how they do a design
Cons: very few advancement opportunities.
Good place to work. Hard to advance. Seemed like if you weren't one of the chosen few, you stayed in a cube and cranked out designs with little or no recognition.

Working at B&V has opened a wider set of opportunities for me in terms of the multicultural experience at work. Technical and managerial decision making were part of my daily routine because there was to time to spend just waiting while working on site in a foreign country.

Engineer Technician (Current Employee), Ann Arbor, MIDecember 26, 2013
This company has a good atmosphere, they have flexible work schedules allowing professionals to take every other Friday off. The only thing I would say that the company needs to improve upon is to allow profesionals to take more responsibility in project roles.

An okay company
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee), Overland Park, KSNovember 12, 2013
Pros: flexible work schedule
An okay company that would work well for someone looking to settle into a professional career with limited vertical growth. Work load fluctuation is very unpredictable. Company is more of a follower than a leader. However, the flexible work schedule, on-site workout facility, and other employee amenities are nice perks.

Document Controller (Current Employee), Reading, ENGOctober 7, 2013
Pros: close to home
Cons: part time
Daily I check my emails and the inbox where all the work is to work on. My day as Document Controller is to work from the oldest date requests. I have to save drawings and documentation to our filing system (Cygnet) and issue to our client. Most of the drawings we receive from Sub-contractors I have to receipt, record and issue to the project teams – more... so that the design team are aware of changes and changes to make an issue back for correction.
I enjoyable part of my job is that it is varied and always learning and willing to learn more. – less
