I worked at Bechtel full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

If company loyalty is important to you then you're not going to do better than Bechtel! I met so many people that had worked there longer than I have lived. Much of the work Bechtel does in international in scope so there is great opportunity for international work/travel.

Cons

Very corporate/cubicle/process driven company (you have to be as such a big company) that can make young and eager professionals feel hemmed in by so many pre-determined corporate realities. It's not a deterrent but something to certainly take into account before signing on the dotted line.

Advice to Management

As a company that has chosen the Function/Project matrix style of company management, the Functional Management Team and the Project Management team could use a good bit of streamlining and coordination at a high level. There appeared to be several disconnects causing rework while I was there.

    Good salary and opportunities to move up the corporate ladder. Bechtel gives you the opportunity to work on some of the world’s biggest and most complex engineering and construction projects.
