    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
