    - Heavy internal politics - High Turnover - Unrealistic expectations of high-performing employees - Do not allow flexible work schedules or work arrangements - No work/life balance - Breed "dog eat dog" environment - Do not fairly advance the "right people" - Good work is rewarded with more work than humanly possible - Do not invest time or money in the appropriate tools and programs for employees - Do not allow continuing education opportunities - Do not support conferences, additional learning opportunities for employees - Lots of talk about being transparent but decisions made in a "black box" - Don't do what they say they are going to do

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

    Pros

    Overall, it's a decent place to work. They provide pretty good benefits, including awards, lots of PTO, an affordable health insurance plan, and okay work environment.

    Cons

    As a government contractor, environment feels stark and is cubical city. Doesn't feel like there's much mentoring going on or chances for advancement. They aren't the best providing opportunity for leadership experience or providing new challenges to employees.

    I worked at Bechtel full-time

    Pros

    Pay is good. Benefits generous.

    Cons

    The company's good-old-boy network is being aggressively dismantled by a “good-new-protected individuals” network. For the most part... The new network's expanding influence and personal agendas are NOT strictly compliant with the very laws, rules and company policies which provided for their protection and advancement. Like it or not, “PAYBACK for decades of good-old-boy” bad behavior is ALIVE and WELL. Elton John has a song appropriately titled for this phenom.

    I worked at Bechtel full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Awesome pay, exciting projects, lots of tools for career growth, good vacation system, good benefits, great people

    Cons

    If you do well, you are often rewarded with more responsibilities instead of greater responsibilities until your job becomes impossible. Getting career opportunities can become a game of knowing how to get noticed rather than actually performing well. Lots of overtime. Often high stress. Lots of rework. Makes for poor work/life balance.
