    I worked at Bechtel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are no pros of working at Bechtel, just a bad environment with dirty politics, few managers just treat their team mates as slaves, so be very careful before joining this company. Managers in this company are asked to treat the resources as slaves.

    Cons

    There are few managers in Bachtel, in software development team, they are not a technical person, but they pressurize his team mates so badly that you can’t survive there, all I can say is, if you are gonna work with them, your life is gonna be hell. Many folks have lost their jobs because of them
