    Pros

    Salary is good, ever changing work environment and you get a lot of training.You will travel to Omaha for meetings and training and network with a lot of district personal

    Cons

    Long hours, but Kiewit does try to promote work life balances, somewhat young workforce which makes your coworkers more relateable

    Pros

    Available training, challenging work, competitive pay, stock option, many locations to move to, great 401k plan.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, normally work 55 - 80 hours a week. Management is very heavy on favoritism. Very little holidays.

    Advice to Management

    If you want all employees to feel engaged and "own" the company, give non-stock holder bonuses. Different district received different COLA is not a good standard.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay, multiple different opportunities within. Ability to work in multiple locations in US and Canada along with Australia. Most get 3 weeks PTO to begin, changes to 5 weeks after 3 years and can be rolled over into a maximum of 400 hrs of PTO.

    Cons

    Very internally political company. Essentially those that work with Kiewit and are successful often don't have much of a personal life outside of the company. Those that get promoted often do so because they work every hour of every day and/or have an in with someone with upper management. Unless you are very close to your upper manager it is very difficult to get a promotion or decent raise as the hierarchy of the company is so skewed that you need a manager to not just give you a positive review but to essentially go out of their way to get you a promotion. Other major con is with career changes or moves within the company it is often not communicated until it happens, without discussion. If you don't like the opportunity it is essentially career suicide with them as they will hold it over you moving forward, even if it was a lateral opportunity you turned down.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with reviews and honest about future career planning.

    Pros

    The people here at Kiewit are one of a kind. They are all hard-working and fun loving. The team experience is truly unique.

    Great opportunities for advancement, if you are willing to put in the hours (60/week) then you will move up the ranks quickly.

    Cons

    The amount of transfers and short notice doesn't give you a sense of stability. Everyone is usually running around, not in a very organized structure.

    The opportunities with advancement don't come with a pay increase. While you might be willing to do what it takes to get the job done well, don't expect to be compensated for it anytime soon. The policies on promotions are skewed.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest revising your policies on compensation, it will cost more in the long-run to replace employees that quit.
