Good Company to work forExcellent staffGood cultureWould recommend as a great place to workCompany always strived to achieve best practiceA good staff appraisal system which was fairLearned how a forward looking Company operates
Job security in UK was only 75% although opportunities for international relocation
The work place was friendly which helped in the fast paced design requirements for the schemes they had to produce for their client. They were in my opinion hamstrung by overly complex procedures particularly within the drawing environment. It would have been better and healthier and more productive if the rules enforced had been less complex
Close to home
Planning was oft times unatainable for diliverables
The Senior Administrator is responsible for organising all administrative activities that facilitate the smooth running of the office and to facilitate organisational effectiveness and efficiency. They must make sure that office equipment is maintained, relevant records are up to date and that all administration processes work effectively. The primary role is to make it possible for other employees to function effectively and efficiently including arranging travel, meetings and appointments.
Contract based only
I was working in an office filled with friendly professional people and for the most part treated with respect. The hours were totally flexible and financially rewarding.
Friendly, professional people and a good salary.

A professional organisation focussed on providing clean water to 1 billion people on the planet who currently do not have access
Varied, complex analytical. slow to make decisions and even slower to implement action plans. Provides a good quality service offering to the clients but would benefit from applying this approach to internal clients-the staff.
Does good in this world
Relaxed place to work. Limited opportunity for growth but the culture may have changed by now. A typical day would involve multiple tasks and projects to work on, no two days are ever the same. Management is quite hands-off but there if needed.
Seem to have a tick the box and all will be fine attitude. Procedures are very onerous and constantly changing. No real social side apart from the obligatory table tennis (gathering dust) in the kitchen.
Travel and lack of assistance.
On a typical day i had to check the slurries for any blockages and check water depth. I learnt how a sewage plant works and what is involved in the removal of waste. The management team were fair and easy to get along with as were my colleagues. The hardest part of the job was having to adjust to the smell day in and day out. I really enjoyed being able to work outside and working as part of a vast company.
Good set hours and pay, felt like part of a team
The smell of the job was hard to adjust to.
Black & Veatch promised a lot but never delivered. Not a company i would recommend if you're looking for a job for life, poor people management skills. Working for BV in Scotland was very enjoyable the site team was fantastic but a one off experience
Poor people managament
Management and workers a like are thorough, professional and a pleasure to work alongside. Working at the kingswood flood defense scheme in Hull heavy lifting in to place of the Archimedes screws to prevent flooding.
proffessional outlooks and work.
