One of the best employers for your first job

Engineer (Former Employee)
Brisbane

I worked at Bechtel full-time for more than 3 years

Pros-great salary, benefits, profit sharing etc.
-great offices, resources, equipment, training, employees, opportunities etc.
-largest EPCM projects in the world

Cons-if you have moral objections to negative environmental impact through large scale industrial development and American political interests in world world affairs working for Bechtel presents a conflict of interest
-very political corporate culture: assimilation required for career advancement
-must be willing to relocate every few years
-must be willing to work in remote projects sites

Advice to Senior Management-be open to employees who want to remain in same city

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
