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

    Pros

    9% 401k match, 4 weeks (non expiring vacation), massive company so lots of opportunity, competitive salaries

    Cons

    Mostly project based so lots of relocating, can get lost in the massive number of employees, poor performers tend to get relocated, not fired

    Advice to Management

    put less stock in "being mobile" and try to accommodate people that want to stay regional

    Interview

    Used Bechtel on line application process. Sent many applications to the only positions opened. Continually checked for updates on new posting. Many positons were either below my salary grade or in locations that were not desirable. Some jobs were already filled and others I was told weeks later that the job have been filled. Follow up is not one of the employers strong points
