long hours, stressfull at times, no overtime compensation, soak up alot of your free time, if you suck at time management you will not make it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You can't take care of your people enough. Give more recognition to the people that are not eligible for stock yet are working their tails off.

    Pros

    Stock program (if you can get it).
    Good insurance.

    Cons

    --10-12 hour days are the norm. NO WORK/LIFE balance.
    --1950's "do it or else" style management.
    --Must put your entire life on hold for the good of the company.
    --VERY low pay
    --If you are on the business side, VERY LITTLE chance for advancement.
    --"Good Ol' Boy" mentality is in full effect here and it does effect who get's promoted and who dose not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    --Treat people like human beings, not like a donkey pulling a cart.
    --Realize that your management style is not good for morale, productivity, or the human condition.

    I worked at Kiewit Corporation

    Pros

    No limit to resources or equipment.

    Cons

    Have to be included with the "in" group. Have to be young and like to drink at company events. Must be able to play the blame game effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actions dont meet the rhetoric. All the necessary management tools are in place but the follow through is not there. This is not intended to bash the company however; I did not want to compromise my personal ethics for my personal gain. Spent a great deal of time in the field and office for the company doing an outstanding job. Never a thank you or good job.
