Current Employee - Project Controls Engineer in Richmond, KY

I have been working at Bechtel full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

My managers are quick to recognize good hard work and significant effort and that is very much appreciated.
Opportunities to work overseas are abundant and they are flexible with finding family jobs as well.

Cons

The company is huge so if you're not the best of the best it's easy to get lost in the crowd.
Continuing lack of domestic job availability.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring back the option to buy shares of ownership of the company.

    Current Employee - Senior Piping Designer in Frederick, MD

    I have been working at Bechtel full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Ok pay (does not keep up with industry standards)
    -Great vacation time (4 weeks the day you start)
    -Immediate co-workers are friendly
    - 9/80 schedule (off every other Friday) with flex scheduling (can come in any time between 6:30-8:30a.m. and leave by 4:00-6:00p.m.

    Cons

    -Upper management does not listen to its employee’s ideas or concerns
    -Must be willing to move frequently (work comes and goes ALOT)
    -Takes many many many many years to be promoted within
    -Bonuses are very limited and small
    -No guaranteed salary (must hunt for a “job charge code”) and hope that the allow you to charge to them for the day.
    -Layoffs/instability has been common for the last 4 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and work together instead of against each other. We all work for the same company and want everyone to succeed. Start promoting more people from within and help train the people that you already have staffed, then to keep hiring people that don’t know the business model.
