great place to work if you network

Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana

I have been working at Bechtel full-time for more than 8 years

Prosgood 2nd innings, they don't give anything until you resign and come back in a year or so.

Consperformance is over hyped and in reality under rated. stay away from power projects, unless you like to be a daily labour paid 8 hours for 12 hours of daily work. yes they have overtime but it's non existent in reality. the supervisors say, no budget baby, and threaten covertly. that's ethics 101 here. top management sings a different song altogether. US guys don't care and local are only to glad, they just blame people productivity for not giving overtime! they hired all useless dimwits , if you believe them. non the less. french queen rule! no bread -then buy pastries.

Advice to Senior Management...no use.
