Pros

I spoke with many other employees in the company and they have nothing but praise for Skanska. They were generally very satisfied and proud to be part of the company.

Cons

Though there aren't many downsides, one of the cons to the job are the long hours and the blurring between personal life and work life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Although being on call is very important, I think its important to get away from the job and not bring work home. Maybe it's a bit too demanding to expect employees to always respond to their work cell phones all the time.

    Very political environment with little respect shown to non-management, non-technical personnel.

    Pros

    Internationally, company has an outstanding reputation and is great for your resume. Company provides excellent benefits, is environmentally aware, and is beneficially involved in the respective location's local community. Company is very competitive in the construction arena which provides a reasonably comfortable level of job security. Company's stated, corporate employment policies are exceptional.

    Cons

    In some locations, stated policies exist only on paper while a "good, old boy" environment remains from the previous ownership. Non-management, non-technical personnel are treated with little respect and given no defining career paths. Salaries/bonuses for this group are very mediocre (or less) and long hours/weekends are the norm. Management arrogance is encouraged and perks are given to a select few. Standards are uneven, i.e., some get training, some do not, some are recognized for their dedication, some are not, etc...very uneven atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce corporate policies in ALL locations, including, if necessary, removing management personnel who do not adhere to policies which ensure fair treatment for all. The bottom tier of personnel is your foundation; if you don't respect and encourage your foundation, eventually your building will implode.

    Favoritism is definitely shown in advancement, raises and promotions

    Pros

    Good benefits, employer flexible if time off needed

    Cons

    Seems the way a non-productive employee is dealt with is via promotion out of the department, while those who work hardest are trapped in the same jobs with no advancement, compensation or promotion.
