I worked at Knife River

Pros

Fun place to work with pretty good pay especially if able to work on overtime. Good benefits and a big company to work for.

Cons

Work is dependent upon the construction economy and therefore unstable and job security can be at risk when business is slow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Notify and educate employees about oportunities for professional development and possibilities with moving up in the company and promotions/ work expectations

    Pros

    MDU resources (parent of Knife River) did infuse considerable capital into the financial mix

    Cons

    It was a great company when it was privately owned. MDU resources/knife river came in and turned from a great company to work for to a lousy company to work for. Thier initial position was that they would let original company run on it's own and 'just send them the money'. After a while they decided they weren't getting enough money and started to micro-manage the company. I won't say that it is now a great company to work for but it is certainly great not to be associated with Knife River/MDU resources.
