Pros

All the resources you need are at your finger tips when you work for Kiewit. Everyone is willing to share ideas and help each other succeed. The work is interesting and satisfying. They pay pretty well.

Cons

Unfortunately, when I worked for Kiewit the economy was at the bottom of the downturn. Kiewit was a standstill in their estimating department, which was where I was placed. Us interns did not have any substantial to do.

    Pros

    Great experience and opportunities getting to work on huge projects and dealing with expensive operations. Got to see a little bit of everything from office work and estimating to field operations.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance sucks, I was working 70hrs a week with every other weekend off. I was moved around monthly from the day I got there. I was basically used to catch certain parts of the job to where they needed to be and once caught up I was tossed away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you hire someone make sure you actually need them instead of having someone move across the country to get laid off 6 months later. Employees don't really matter as much as the stock holders shares.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and the benefits are fantastic, great health insurance and 401K matching.

    Cons

    The pay is not competitive, especially when you take into account the amount of hours you'll work. The company is very construction driven, therefore if you work in "support" staff i.e. (not an engineer, superintendent, project manager) there is not much appreciation for your effort or many opportunities for upward advancement. If you're ambitious, you can look for your own opportunities and training, but you'll have to be your own advocate to see any of them actually happen, many employees are told no when they ask for outside training, even if it is not training that is offered within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture here is not at all what we say it is. If "People" are supposed to be a core value, then start acting like it. Our compensation is terrible and it's almost implied that overtime is an expectation, whether it's necessary for task completion or not. Listen to your employees, when such a huge percentage leave and complain of poor compensation and no opportunity, stop trying to say compensation isn't the issue and start addressing it head on.
