Depends what project and management team

Bechtel is a great company to work for if you get the right team together. Fast paced work environment making big projects happen, if you get in with the right management.

cant be trusted.

A bunch of wanky yankees that have no consideration for the individual,All they care about is themselves and getting the job finished.They talk about safety but if they can get away without it they will turn a blind eye.

Be Aware

Worked for this company for over 10 years. If you don't know people in the company or have a sponser to get you to your next project your wasting your time. Some of the people they have in Human Resources in Australia have no idea, some are really are out of their depth but yet they are still there, it just goes to show if you are welling to do some brown-nosing you might get that promotion. The Bechtel family are a great family, its the management team, especially the Corporate teams in Australia that let the company down. They are ripping the company off, while paid to hide on projects with no real job for them, again boils down to who you know. Was once a great place to work, people that are 50 years and older looking for career progression or long term employment should certainly looks elsewhere, Until the good old Boy/Girls club is still dictating who gets a job and who doesn't is finally realized this company will remain not a good place to work. Well known that others are allowed to take credit for others hard work, this is reflected in the bonuses given each year.

Pros

Pay, Family owned, Accommodation

Cons

Nepotism, favoritism

Honest, ethical: family company, no-BS culture

This company does not just talk about doing the right thing, they treat you well. If you are able to be flexible (travel!) and have the right skills in Engineering, Procurement, Construction or Management, go for it. But be aware it's project-driven, so you'll probably get laid off when the project ends. But if there is a next project, and you have done a good job, they will try to keep you. Great opportunity to see the world!

Pros

Genuine care for employees

Cons

If there is no job to go to when the project ends, sayonara mate.

Fast paced but interesting

My job at bechtel was as a crane leading hand . Hard work and long hours , but worked with an excellent crew ,which in turn made the job experience enjoyable. The managers left us alone , just gave me a daily job list and left the rest up to me . With a well trained crew ,this style of command worked well. Five years on the job ,finished with all the same crew .
