Pros

Well known company, a huge plus in a resume, if you ever worked at Bechtel.
Truly equal opportunities employee.

Cons

Below average pay
Majority of jobs are in Asia and Middle East, which makes you relocate every so often, which can also be an advantage for some employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good job overall!

    I worked at Bechtel

    Pros

    My supervisors were great, my successful problem solving was attributed to me with no subterfuge. Great training was provided while I worked there, broad and practical.

    Cons

    Very large company, so there were many inefficiencies that I had to put up with. While this was frustrating, I did learn later that there was a bigger picture that I was unaware of at the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although it would be challenging, I believe a more earnest attempt at worker consultation to improve business processes would be beneficial.

    I have been working at Bechtel

    Pros

    The projects are very interesting and the many locations are exotic. Travel budgets are not what they used to be and reimbursements often don't cover all expense.

    Cons

    Time demands are extreme and overtime is not generally authorized. It's shut up and do it or look for another job. Many newer employees won't put up with this and leave after a year or two.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay and treat employees better. Many of the supposed "benefit" packages like wellness and happiness they've bought from outside providers are of little value. Cash talks.
