I have been working at Bechtel full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

More accountability for senior managers to adhere to corporate covenants.

    Pros

    Too many ways to improve skills, too much to learn and readily available sources of information.
    Expert consultants / academics working part time or full time and are easily accessible.

    Cons

    Not among the best paying companies compared to its turnover and jobs volume.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
