Pros

Brand name
Unlimited bonding capacity
Effective employee training program allows convenient web based access
Great 401k program and good health care benefits

Cons

Unhealthy competition between regional offices
Must be in the "clique" with project executives & operations management to advance
Estimating staff lacks detailed estimating talent or hard dollar estimating skills to compete in current market
Business development management non-existent

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend some time on the projects to experience firsthand how jobs are managed and how staff really performs. Perform a review of the employee evaluation process because its a catch all evaluation tool.

    Pros

    There was alot of responsibility given to an intern
    The people working for the company are great
    The atmosphere is amazing

    Cons

    The pay was only average, could have been a bit higher
    There was some busy work, but nothing too remedial

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interns have a great opportunity with Skanska, however they need to get paid a higher wage, considering that they are doing the same work as project engineers.

    Pros

    Skanska makes a concerted effort to train all of their employees. Senior management seems to truly care that you are growing as an individual. They have spent a significant amount of money training us in the last year.

    Cons

    The company is rather large. Even in the Seattle office there are enough people to ensure that you will most likely never know all of the people on a first-name basis.
    This can be a problem for young professionals trying to climb the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Far enough removed to have not met or know many of them.
