Pros

They get some the the biggest projects around. If it's big and difficult i's probably a kiewit job which allows ample opportunity to learn.

Cons

The fact that you work for kiewit means that kiewit now owns you. Expect 12-14 hr days also your weekends now belong to kiewit. First week on the job i was given a "sunday key" for the job trailer. There was even a banner in a super's office that read, "KIEWIT your bitching!"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop ostracizing your people for leaving the office after 10 hrs

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities to grow, work on some of the greatest projects around, continually given more responsibility if wanted, good benefits

    Cons

    Low salary compared to other companies, will start new engineers out with more money than you when you have been there for a few years already, expected to move with no questions asked and do it quick, don't care about personal life's, expected to leave vacations early to get to site or meetings, no respect for young engineers. Work/life balance is tough here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be active in the career development of the younger employees because they are the future of the districts. Coach mid level managers as they are just starting into those positions and get big heads quickly and no one will work for them. Show respect for young engineers because y'all were there once also. Don't just assume someone else is looking out for your people take pride in molding them.

    Current Employee - Business Manager in Omaha, NE

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, ability to travel/move to interesting parts of the country. 401K matching is great, too, as 10% of base pay salary is deposited at the end of each year in addition to weekly matching.

    Cons

    Lots of hours and not much advancement for Business Managers. It is definitely an "Engineer's World" and the attitude shows with disrespect towards anyone not an engineer.
