Worked night shift for 1 and a half years 12 hours often 7 days a week. In pressure test crew it was required to do the hours and the pay reflected the effort.
Pros
Great supervisor
Cons
Job came to end.

Management were constantly looking to fire skilled Engineers and replace them with “Engineers” from the India office. Always had trouble with getting deliverables out of India office, Everything was always tracking good until the day before deliverables were due. Nothing ever turned up on time so project was always delayed.
Pros
A job (for a short time)
Cons
Always threatened with being fired

I loved every minute of my time with Bechtel, I travelled a lot and dealt with some tricky customers over the years but always felt the support from senior management. Allowed me to innovate when necessary and listened to my ideas, they are very open to mentoring and training at every opportunity and every level. When I joined they were very construction orientated, managed and owned by construction people. If you are a young engineer or construction person this is the company for you, definitely allow for some international travel and possibly hard working conditions but remuneration will be adequate.
Pros
Great work environments, great people from every country on the planet.Safest company to work for without a doubt
Cons
Some office politics at times but very minor

Bechtel has without doubt the most draconian company polcies of any company i have ever worked for. They have no flexibility for employees with a change in personal situations.

An excellent place to work best 5 years of my career. However there were very few chances for advancement and they were very difficult to achieve. Would still like to work for them again though.

Unfortunately many management positions were occupied by people who had no idea or even cared about the company and were only interested in their own self preservation and advancement. TTThose managers
Pros
Great working conditions
Cons
Managers who weren’t managers or leaders.

Not a career path as employment is for one construction project at a time but if well thought of, you will be offered other contracts. Excellent safety culture. Long hours but well remunerated.

It was great and they put a lot of emphasis on safety , as they should
HOWEVER, when I had a safety issue it was disregarded and shuffled aside and the task was relegated

Bechtel where a fantastic family orientated company to work for.
They care about their workers and their workers families.

The job itself was on a time line but a relaxed environment to work in.

This is the most hardest job that I have done because I need to go up and down for maybe 12 times on the module everyday which is 165 steps times 12 run. I work for Bechtel for almost 3 and 6 months and the money is really good.
