"A good company overall, with great pay and benefits and a good working environment. The main downside I found was that there is no tolerance for overhead (unusual in an engineering company, in my experience). So when there is any market downturn, jobs are cut left and right. At least the layoffs were handled better than some other places I have worked."

"Bechtel is a strong company with good technical staff and culture. The main drawback is that there is no tolerance for overhead on the part of management. If the market slacks off, workers are shed very quickly."
