    I have been working at Bechtel Marine Propulsion full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good, especially the vacation and 9/80 schedule. The work is interesting and satisfying. As an individual contributor you can influence pretty key decisions. There is always more responsibility if you want it. Coworkers bond very closely, probably because we don't have the Internet to distract us. Overall a good place to work.

    Cons

    Compensation is below average and raises for high performers are comparable to raises for low to average performers elsewhere (if I believe a recent Forbes article). Company culture is harsh and can be a shock at first. Mistakes are analyzed to death. Management says it's to learn from mistakes, but it can seem like dwelling on the past.

    Interview Details

    Two managers will interview and both need to give a recommendation. Its really a seasonal and random thing depending on the government funding situation. They are very biased to people who are Engineers. They don't care if you took the FE or PE test, just that you are an Engineer.

    Interview Questions
    • "I hate my job"... Its a statement the main manager of the highest paid engineers will just say and then he will wait and see what your response is. He is looking to see if you like a challenge or will get discouraged easily.   View Answers (2)
    Negotiation Details
    Wasn't really one. I've heard that there is maybe a 15% pay negotiation but unless they are desperate for you... what your offered is what they will give.
