I have been working at Bechtel full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Even during economic downturns, Bechtel management looks for ways to retain its employees. For example, there may be offices where staff hours are cut but layoffs are minimized. If you are a good performer, management is flexible in moving you to another city or country for personal reasons. There are also many opportunities to switch functions, especially if you are a non-engineer. Opportunities to work overseas for people willing to do so. Compensation is competitive.

Cons

Double standard for top managers who don't have to adhere to companies policies of treating others with respect, transparency, etc.

Advice to Management

More accountability for senior managers to adhere to corporate covenants.

    Pros

    980 schedule, makes your resume shine, does well in down-turns

    Cons

    Lack of training, entry level pay isn't really competitive, bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    Retain new hires! Don't act like you don't know how - you attract some of the best talent there is, then refuse to compensate them at a competitive level.

    Pros

    Decent Benefits; 9/80 Work Schedule; Generous Vacation

    Cons

    Management seems to be clueless on the emmense pressure to produce. Train wreck waiting to happen. Schedule trumps everything. Terrible work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Management style is VERY outdated. Needs to truely review and react to Lessons Learned.
