    The company is large and well established as a global construction contractor. All employees are trained on how the company and its various divisions function, and how the company makes money. A good effort is made to keep employees informed and up to date on the company's performance.

    Cons

    It seems like the company's long history sometimes stands in the way of true innovation or risk taking

    Pros

    Skanska is a company with competitive salaries, high moral value, integrity and an excellent record for safety which is critical for a construction management firm

    Due to its sheer size, there is little contact from Senior management with the employees and it can often create the feeling of isolation on projects as is common with construction firms

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should consider spedning more time with the employees and give a better indication of company progress, pursuits and opportunity
