    I have been working at Bechtel full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flex schedule
    Good salary and bonus

    Cons

    Fear of downsizing and layoffs always present
    Management changes mind and isn't supportive
    People are unfriendly and not welcoming to new employees
    No on boarding so you are lost for months
    No community
    Too big for it's own good
    Management created positions that aren't supported with a champion or company buy in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more thought and effort into recruiting plan. Support professional hires as much as college hires. Do not create positions or a dept. without a thorough plan that supports them.

    In my entire career, this has by far been the coldest and worst place I have worked. I was hired into a newly created position and placed on a newly created team. This meant that about 20 of us were brand new to the company. These are highly educated, highly experienced new hires - and we were dropped in the middle of the colosseum to fight for ourselves. There was so much promise around my new position and the whole department, which would create an area that Bechtel hadn't formally touched before. Within weeks I realized that while management created the dream of the job, they wouldn't support it organization-wide by mandating some necessary new processes. To date, the majority of brand new hires (who bonded well over the many issues of the company) are looking to leave as soon as possible. Change is impossible in this narcissistic environment. People will be sure to tell that they are "Bechtel brats" - meaning their parents worked there, and now they work there, and they sadly have no other experience (or education in many cases). Nepotism at it's best. A rich heritage is not the feeling you get at Bechtel, but more an old, white guy fraternity (or even worse - cliques of threatened women worse than Mean Girls!!) that doesn't like newbies to come in. On top of all this, most people are just flat out not nice or good people. Not a good environment with terrible morale; run for your life.
