    Current Employee - Document Control in Saint Paul, MN (US)

    I have been working at Bechtel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive salary; good benefits; 9-day/80-hour work schedule; opportunities to relocate. Safety is a priority. Ability to work with people from all over the world.

    Cons

    "Old-school" rigid corporate structure with inability to be flexible. Top managers seem to receive all the perks while low to mid-range employees get nothing (typical corporate structure). Few opportunities to move within a team/project environment. All about billable hours and cost savings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to be flexible... especially the "lifers".
