    Benefits are great, the company is very organized, active in the community, enrichment opportunities. Branch manager of Rockville as of 12/2014 is very people-oriented and a visionary

    Cons

    the DC office still has a ways to go, frequently reinventing itself and still trying to grow a stronger reputation in the industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within more frequently and offer more training opportunities

    Pros

    The people are knowledgeable, respectful and very friendly. Working with good coworkers is always a great positive aspect of any company

    Cons

    The only cons of working at Skanska are the inability to move up quickly and lack of promotions based on merit. The promotion process should be based on work ethic and merit and not on years of service

    Pros

    The company is large and well established as a global construction contractor. All employees are trained on how the company and its various divisions function, and how the company makes money. A good effort is made to keep employees informed and up to date on the company's performance.

    Cons

    It seems like the company's long history sometimes stands in the way of true innovation or risk taking

    Pros

    All in all Skanska is a good place to work. The base pay and benefits are better than other companies I have been with.

    Cons

    Office politics usually govern. Project bonuses are slow to be released. Managers seem to appreciate "face time" more than the steady workers. It all depends on the team you work with and who you get "in" with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more aware of the actual performers vs. those that appear to be working.

    Pros

    Skanska is a company with competitive salaries, high moral value, integrity and an excellent record for safety which is critical for a construction management firm

    Cons

    Due to its sheer size, there is little contact from Senior management with the employees and it can often create the feeling of isolation on projects as is common with construction firms

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should consider spedning more time with the employees and give a better indication of company progress, pursuits and opportunity
