Disappointed with this company
Administrative Clerk (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – January 15, 2019
Once I found out that Bechtel does not give vacation, 401k or paternal leave following childbirth I started looking elsewhere. This company is the poster child why America's business class is failing. They even went out of their way to specifically put an exception clause with their insurance carrier thereby not covering any developmental issues or mental health issues. This would have been nice to have for my 3 year old with low spectrum Autism.
Little gets accomplished in meetings. For the most part meetings consist of a room full of egos trying to prove to the other they are smarter than the next guy. Weeks later the same problems persist.
Promotion from within happens only if you are part of the "good old boy system" or your husband/wife works for the company. Great talent on lower level jobs is completely overlooked.
As stated before, unless you are part of "corporate" you get 5 days of PTO per year. God forbid you have to use those days throughout the year, you will be left with no paid days when corporate shuts down over Christmas/New years break, leaving you broke going in to the new year.
This company is a direct representation of America. Those on the higher levels are rolling in money while the other 90% of people working for Bechtel are barely getting by. Complete Atrocity.
