I have been working at Bechtel full-time (More than a year)

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 Management

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.

    Management style is VERY outdated. Needs to truely review and react to Lessons Learned.
