Internship program is well structured and there is many events organised for interns to enable them to network with seniors. Seniors are very helpfull and willing to support.

I enjoyed my time at Bechtel, I had seen colleagues that I had previously worked with in that same field of work there.

It's a friendly environment to work at, Hr was always there to help if you needed assistance, including IT.

I had a good team and a great boss to work for.

Lots of meeting to attend.
Pros
Cafe onsite for breakfast
Cons
Long hours

Bechtel has the feeling of being in a big family with a great deal of support from senior management.
The work opportunities that Bechtel provides for expansion in their workforce to become leaders is admirable.

Everyone thinks they are always doing their jobs and they are better than everyone else, especially the older ones, where in fact, no one know what they are doing, or they know but it is being done extremely wrong, unorganized and there is zero communication.

Bechtel does not do a job of making you feel included or important.
Bechtel does a good job at earning money off their employees but not investing in the younger population. Not very sustainable.
Pros
Some knowledgable peopleto learn from
Cons
Don't invest into training of employee.

I worked with some really great intelligent people there, however a prejudiced culture was very prominent and openly voiced particularly among the supervisors who came from the Houston office, because there were few projects in that office. As a result those working for such managers adopted the same attitude.

Additionally there was no work life balance with regular overtime being expected in the evenings and weekends although time and again this proved unproductive.


On a positive not because it is a project based environment the team you work with changes from project to project.
Pros
Pays well
Cons
Prejudice

I was there 14 years working long hours and lots of weekends and relocated 6 times to where they needed me. When this last project ended I was told we have no place to send you, so you are done. That old saying work hard and it will pay off. I found that not to be a true statement along with loyalty. But I have to say that I had some good managers and great people I worked with over the years. The work is fast pasted and you must stay on top of your game.
Pros
Worked with some great people
Cons
You can be let go at any time

London office, the culture is to stab you in the back, inexperience management, all too focused on climbing the ladder, no team spirit. Great place for ethnic minorities, can get away with anything as it looks great on the company's diversity stats.
Pros
Great location
