    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Bechtel full-time

    Pros

    Good line management
    4X10's
    Very little stress (deadlines come and go and no cares if missed)

    Cons

    Deadlines have no meaning
    Very little productive work
    No planning (1st 6 months here and there was no work for me to do)
    Meetings that have no value
    No one can agree and when they do and an agreement is reached someone will say we didn't agree to that.
    People have worked here for decades and got used to doing little work and the people that want to speed work up end up doing the lifetime WTPers work for them
    Schedule and cost have no priority here. Safety is supposed to be the number one priority but people still get hurt. With the sacrifices on cost and schedule, safety and quality should be great but they lack in safety and quality at WTP.

    Advice to Management

    Fix WTP
