"I worked for Bechtel Corp. for 4 years. It is one of the largest engineering and construction companies in the US. Bechtel has great incentives and ample opportunity to move up within the company. I felt secure in my position and comfortable with my co workers and supervisors. Bechtel is a great company to work for and I enjoyed every minute of the experience."

"Bechtel is an outstanding company to work for and have been appreciative of working with them for the past 6 years. My only problem with Bechtel is there have been periods of a couple of months between projects with no position for me and all the traveling that is required. Other than that, the compensation is great along with the benefits."
