Beware of corporate politics
Travel Coordinator/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Houston, TXJune 7, 2014
Functional management has their favorites and if those favorites don't like you, then management makes it increasingly difficult to do your job properly.
It's very stressful and doesn't have any semblance of a team environment.

Management is reactive to events not proactive, rewards offered, but rarely given.
Rigger on Crane Crew (Current Employee), Gladstone, QLDJune 6, 2014
Pros: good pay rate
Cons: long travel times, and management
Typical day at work, pre start meeting, assignments given.
for me Skill advancements offered but not followed up.
Management seemed to make it up as they went along.
Most co-workers were good, although very little interaction after work
having to walk a franner everywhere and dealing with some supervisors.
when i had to think about what i had to do – more... , rather than just dog a load. – less

Bechtel is one of the finest organizations to work in the Bay Area. The atmosphere is great, Bechtel is very pro-active in training its workforce regardless of position, be it administrative, technical or scientific. Solid old fashioned work ethics and standards. Always an open door to advance one's career. My long tenure at Bechtel was a memorable – more... one. – less

Engineering/Construction Mgmt Firm; Global and Privately Owned
Business Process Analyst (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAApril 16, 2014
Pros: bechtel believes in paying in the higher % bracket for higher skilled employees and for retention.
Cons: much care is given to the top 1% and emerging leaders, middle population does not have many opportunities.
Bechtel employees are the best; hard working, dedicated emplyoees with high integrity. We all work well as a team regardless of entity, project, field, or location. Everyone is willing to help and very nice.

There is always a tremendous amount of activity and work to do at Bechtel. There's no such thing as "slow or down time". Employees tend to work – more... longer days at their own discretion, just wanting to get the work done and to do their best. We have very high quality standards. Bechtel supports flex time, so many offices work a 9/80 schedule, but most employees tend to work 10-12 hours days. Its not expected or held against us if we don't, its just the general mentality of the population.

I've had a successful career at Bechtel, and have learned a lot, but in my type of work, I haven't had opportunities to travel .Employees with technical skills and/or professional licenses have many wonderful opportunities to work around the world and experience/learn about other cultures and fields of work.

Overall its a very good company; very large, global, and privately owned so a lot of information is not/cannot be shared with the public. It takes a certain type of person to be successful in this environment. – less
