Bechtel Power
Control Systems Engineer (Former Employee), Frederick, MDAugust 18, 2014
Pros: job security, good benefits
Cons: uncertainty in project location, slow paced
Good solid company. If you are interested in engineering design working on large projects there is probably no better company. It was a little slow paced at times and dependent on winning contracts for additional projects in order to provide additional opportunities.

Great Place Overall.. I thoroughly enjoyed this job.
Site Acquisition Coordinator (Former Employee), Long Island and NYCAugust 4, 2014
Pros: great pay. great people. enjoyed the position.
Cons: have to constantly move from job to job.
Bechtel is a great company to work for. Pay is great and managers were very impressive and good people. I would give this company an A overall. However, to stay with the company you have to be willing to constantly move. Every construction job has an ending. Since Bechtel is a large world wide organization - therefore you never know where they might – more... ask you to move next. – less

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

Pros: good managment & great co-workers
Cons: it was only a tenp. job.
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.
