Encourage rotational programs to give employees relief from field assignments and increase benefits for families that reduce to 1 income to support the Bechtel employee uprooting his/her family.

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

    Pros

    Even during economic downturns, Bechtel management looks for ways to retain its employees. For example, there may be offices where staff hours are cut but layoffs are minimized.

    If you are a good performer, management is flexible in moving you to another city or country for personal reasons. There are also many opportunities to switch functions, especially if you are a non-engineer.

    Opportunities to work overseas for people willing to do so. Compensation is competitive.

    Cons

    Double standard for top managers who don't have to adhere to companies policies of treating others with respect, transparency, etc.

    Advice to Management

    More accountability for senior managers to adhere to corporate covenants.
