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

    Pros

    They are very good to their employees. They pay better than any company I've worked for. They provide lunches, treats and give employees jackets, beanies, shirts, etc. Sure it has their logo on it, but these are very good quality items and I've been very proud to wear them.

    Cons

    Sometimes the overtime can get overwhelming but the overtime pay helps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. This has been my best experience with a company to date.
