Good company care about employees

Overall a good company to work for. When time off was needed for personal reasons, they gladly accommodated my needed time off, and made sure my position was not filled. I was able to return to work like I hadn't missed any time at all.

Good place to work

Decent pay. Plenty of hours. Learned a lot while working there. Lots of traffic entering and leaving work. Sometimes difficult to get tools or supplies from tool room clerks.

Es una empresa cuya máxima preocupacuon es la Seguridad del trabajador. Tiene un programa de atención personalizada para con los trabajadores que se lesionan en el trabajo ya sean lesiones leves como otras de mayor impacto. Es una empresa que me dió el valor que no veía . Hoy puedo decir mil gracias Bechtel y estamos a la orden... Vale la pena seguir a esta empresa a dónde se dirija.

Wonderful Employer

Feels like family but in a good way. Great flexible hours, good pay, great work environment and supportive management. Only wish it wasn't a project only position.

Good work experience, but management leadership has sunk to low levels.

Great projects, but as the work booked decreased the company culture tanked to the lowest levels during my 30 year career. The current management team does not practice what they promote. In a family company it is key to be part of the family, if you want to advance.


You want to travel - work here.


Family company, management treats people poorly, and you will travel all the time.

professional and challanging.

This is the top end of Construction/ Construction Management companies. You will find projects so varied and challanging, staffed with the best professionals in the field. Its not a job. Its a career. If you're hired your lucky and good. Enjoy the ride.


great money, great projects, good management, job security


never had a problem

Company cares only for money, and not the safety or well being of employees

- Only persons who agree with management are respected, even when management recognizes they were wrong in the first place.- Management regularly puts down workers, and upper management does nothing to stop this.- Good ol' boys club. Only bootlickers get ahead

Flexibility is the key for lasting and advancing at Bechtel. Politics also plays a role in getting up the ladder faster than the average.

It’s a conglomerate. So, you could be working for different bosses through the years. With every new boss, you have to prove yourself all over again, and again. However, for engineers, it’s a great company to work for and acquiring a wealth of experience in the engineering and construction of multi billion dollars projects all over the world. The company has several different specialized business units: Infrastructures, power, oil & gas, mining, etc. When one business unit is not doing well because of a global economic setback, you can easily find an opportunity with another business unit within Bechtel.

Worst company to work for, favoritism all over

Management stinks, leaders favor employees based on their race and color. Take advantage of employees’ visa status. No opportunity for growth for people of color.

Professional PM environment

Good company, Professional and experienced engineers all around. Great place to work, but the layoff was the only choice they have for people who are not connected


fair pay


Limited working time in some projects

Overall a decent company to work for if you are in the right circle

I reported several issues including safety to HR and the head manager for the site and my claims were dismissed. HR is not here for the employees, they are there to protect the company. One of the first things they tell you during orientation is retaliation is not tolerated here which is false. My coworkers were very nice but management and the people who are suppose to help you succeed are not in your corner if you don't subscribe to their view of things and you can be blackballed quickly because of it.


Plenty of hours, benefits, good coworkers


Management, Hr, retaliation for reporting issues

The best Engineering and construction in the world

Bechtel is the most goal oriented company i have ever worked with! The goals are team selected from every level, craft, from start to finished. All plans are addressed and explained no matter what! Team work is strong not only within the individual departments or crafts. Individual craft goals are addressed so the next crafts can achieve their goals. Items are not completed but instead decisions with the next craft to ensure any bottle necks in the progression of the project are not an issue. Bechtel is truly the company in my opinion were any Engineer, craft (aka- Ironworker, pipe welders/fitters, carpenters, and all other crafts will be respected by any other companies when seen on your resume.
