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
Pros
Close to home
Cons
Planning was oft times unatainable for diliverables

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.
Pros
Does good in this world
Cons
complex

There is the ability to work all over the world on different and interesting projects for a company that pays fairly well and encourages self development.

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.

Good company to work for with great benefits,but the downside of a very large company is the organization is terrible. For instance,rdering a single site sign took 4 months numerous emails and 1 conference call.....

Excellent company to work for with professional individuals across the board. I have worked with B&V across several projects across many sites and no matter who the team is it always maintains the same standards.

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.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
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.
Pros
Good set hours and pay, felt like part of a team
Cons
The smell of the job was hard to adjust to.

Learned new things and time management. Co- workers are very friendly and nice. Not good place for IT people who expect to grow in their career. There is not much team - bonding activities.
