Deskside support tech (Former Employee), phoenix, azJuly 29, 2014
Pros: happy employees, advancement if you are mobile, management willing to listen
Cons: must go to a large office or project to advance your career
I really loved the corporate culture offered at Bechtel. At first we were one big happy family, then some corporate politics changed, and we became more silo'd. However people are people, and at this company they are GREAT.

Premiere EPC company in the world
Field Coordinator (Current Employee), CaliforniaJuly 28, 2014
Pros: great compensation package, prestigious company
Cons: traveling, instability, long hours
I feel very proud to say I work for Bechtel. It's a prestigious company to work for. We work hard, but are treated well for it. The work environment is pretty tight due to sharing the struggles encountered in our everyday challenges. The hardest part about working for Bechtel is the moving around. As a project-based company, you are constantly working – more... your way out of a job. When that job is over, it's on to the next one somewhere else in the world. It can be exciting, but not particularly stable. The most enjoyable part of the job is the overall compensation and their attempt to make up for the inherant instability and the sacrifices made by the employees. – less

Mechanical Technician (Former Employee), Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD 21010July 25, 2014
Pros: good managment & great co-workers

Chemical Weapons Grade disposal is nothing to be taken lightly, but I have to say that Bechtel Management did their best in keeping us save and well supplied doing our jobs, which went anywhere from pump repair to pipe fitting to hydraulic repairs.
