Bentley’s commitment to our user community extends beyond delivering the most complete and integrated software – it pairs our products with exceptional service and support. Access to technical support teams 24/7, a global professional services organization and continuous learning opportunities through product training, online seminars and academic programs define our commitment to current and future generations of infrastructure professionals.
With our broad product range, strong global presence, and pronounced emphasis on our commitment to our neighbors, Bentley is much more than a software company – we are engaged functioning members of the global community. Our successes are determined by the skills, dedication, and involvement of extraordinary Bentley colleagues around the world.

I have been working at Bentley Systems full-time (More than 10 years)
The work-life balance and family-friendly nature have been much appreciated and what has kept me loyal for 10+ years. Work with good, smart people. Lots of opportunities for learning. If you show an interest in a certain topic, you may have the opportunity bring that knewly attained knowledge into Bentley as an SME.
Opportunity to grow in role, sometimes the opportunity to advance may be slower than some people want.
Advice to Management

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bentley Systems (Exton, PA) in July 2017.
Streamlined and to the point, active communication which matched up with the timelines that were set. From application submission to first contact was less than a week, after which there was a phone screening with the recruiter. Additional week for a phone interview with the hiring manager, at which point the determination was made the same day to bring me in for an in-person the following week. In-person was with the hiring manager and telco to two team members. A week after this, an offer was extended. Start to finish it was about a month, refreshing change of pace for a larger company.
