I have been working at Bechtel

Pros

There is a large diversity of employees there that allow for different perspectives. Management is great there and everybody is competent. Bechtel also follows a 9/80 schedule which is nice to have every other friday off of work.

Cons

Interns without experience are sometimes given very little responsibility or next to meaningless tasks that doesn't stimulate the interest in the industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The internship program was very well organized. Interns were able to experience more about the industry through the incorporation of field trips and site visits.

    I worked at Bechtel

    Pros

    well paid, challenging work, faced paced environment, with very talented and professional people, definitely a leader in the industry and it is great to be a part of that kind of a team.

    Cons

    commitment to work is the most important thing despite maangement statements to the contrary work life balance is near impossible to acheive. You become a Bechtel person because you work with Bechtel people and the only people who understand your lifestyle are also Bechtel people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We might not have the same values that you do and while we appreciate that that nothing in life is free, money is not the be all and end all.
