    Pros

    Bechtel projects are always exciting and never boring. The work is always challenging and growing you. Bechtel promotes and compensates those are good performers and willing to help out the team.

    Cons

    The best way to move up in Bechtel is working projects which means roughly moving every 2 years. Not conducive for a family lifestyle, or a good work life balance. Bechtel gets the job done and sometimes this can mean significant overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Bechtel needs to consider its approach to retaining talent and offer more opportunities at permanent office locations that still provide exciting project work with travel as necessary.
