    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 ManagementAdvice

    More accountability for senior managers to adhere to corporate covenants.

    I worked at Bechtel full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to work on some of the largest construction projects in the world. Pay is above average, benefits are average to above average, some of smartest people in industry work at company and are open to answer your questions, have their brains picked.

    Cons

    You go where company decides they want you to go, hard to transfer job locations without support of senior project management. Other standard issues faced while at any large corporation, but nothing that cannot be worked out and dealt with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Young staff are eager to learn, work hard, and make the company better.
