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

    Pros

    Decent place to work. Plenty to learn specific to the job.

    Cons

    No real opportunities for skills development
    Don't expect things to change in this place, things are the way they've always been, and will always be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help your employees by offering better training to expand employee skill sets.

    Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Niskayuna, NY

    I have been working at Bechtel Marine Propulsion full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good
    Ownership is a key tenant of the work
    Interesting and challenging work and projects
    Job security/stability
    Easy to jump around into new jobs internally
    Vacation package is very generous
    When you leave work, you LEAVE WORK (no email access outside of work)
    Good work/life balance
    Rarely have to work more than 40 hours per week
    9/80 (every other Friday off) schedule available
    Flexible schedules

    Cons

    Increase in pay is slow
    Job progression is far too structured and timed
    Security environment is demoralizing
    No cell phone access on site (must be left in car)
    Limited (or difficult) access to Internet
    Hard to affect any change at any level
    Health insurance is continuously going up and it will eventually be high deductible plan only
    Most people start their day at 6:30 or 7:00 (very early)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't rely on collateral duties to get everything non-technical done
    Look more to the outside world on how to best do things, especially new types of things we don't normally do
    Engineers can't do everything, even though we seem to think we can
    Fund special initiatives if you what a professional outcome
    The move to "One Company" isn't being accepted as much as it should
    Directors are already making their organizations into fiefdoms; far too much stove piping from the beginning of "One Company"
