    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone wants to work here becasue of the name but we need to find out how to keep people here. Listen to the concerns of employees and come into the 21st centruy. There are differnet ways of working and still being just as successful if not more than we have been.

    I worked at Skanska full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Big, international company so a great deal of job security. I had constant contact with executives which was a unique benefit of my position but typically the 'regular' employee feels out of touch.

    Cons

    Not much room to move up in the organization - especially for women. Try to align yourself with executives if you want to have any movement in your career.

    I worked at Skanska

    Pros

    Growth and financial stability. it was interesting working for the mi business unit. corporate skanska culture has not yet been adopted in the united states. it will take time but they are dedicated and are getting the states up to speed

    Cons

    skanska usa is not yet up to speed on the corporate culture. business units are still running the way the company they acquired. which causes frustration with upper mgt. because they are not changing with the new corporate culture that should be adopted. hard to relocate depending on what unit unit you are located in. get to the headquarters

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work
