You can expect to earn around the industry average for a grad engineer position. Benefits seem to vary depending on what region you’re working on and aren’t always lavish.
Though it's long been publicly listed, Bouygues still operates in many ways as a family company. If it doesn’t offer eye-catching salaries and benefits packages, it does at least provide more job security than is usual in the construction industry. If you work hard, perform well (and can say hello in French!) you should be able to move up the ranks.
This varies depending on role, location and project. If you’re an innovative, diligent type who enjoys working with colleagues from all over the globe and wants the opportunity to spend time in other countries, you should find BYCA a good fit for you.

From Martin Bouygues, CEO of the Bouygues Group:
I’m often asked what is the Bouygues group’s main strength and distinguishing feature more than sixty-five years after its creation. Without doubt, the Group’s main strength is having people who share the same culture and robust values, and that it can count on stable shareholders – SCDM a and its employees – who are very much involved in the conduct of its business. This is what enables us to meet challenges with a long-term vision.
Three priorities guide our strategies and action. They are to:
satisfy our customers and retain their loyalty, since this is the reason for our existence. Designed with our partners, our innovative products and services must help them meet the major challenges of today (demographic, climatic, digital) over the long term, whilst making life better every day for as many people as possible;conduct our business with respect for all our stakeholders and create value for our employees and shareholders;maintain a healthy financial situation and a reasonable level of debt in order to continue independent decision-making in all circumstances. Furthermore, the diversiﬁcation of our activities helps to cushion the impact of the difﬁculties that some of them may experience from time to time.
"Before making any strategic decisions, in my opinion, the most important thing to bear in mind is that our company is a real-life journey that deserves the utmost respect since its people work tirelessly, using their energy and talent to make life better every day."
