What other contractors are saying about Bechtel's payment practices

How would you describe their payment process, speed, and policy?

Competent, not especially fast... but nothing like the foot dragging you see at some BIG primes. Like all primes, speed varies with project and project team. But Bechtel has strong personnel, and that helps a competent sub keep things on track.
