    Pros

    One of the best Pro's about Skanska is the construction business is that business currently is not “dry” and is growing. On the end that I worked in, there are also no “dry” ends of the business. They will continually need the position that I worked in. Office environment is beautiful, open, work space is nice at your own personal desk, and it is starting to become crowded.

    Cons

    Although, certain colleagues of Skanska do not appreciate the position I had, they wish that we were not here, keep telling upper management that we should be outsourced to better people. I personally do not believe this is true as I know some work hard, some work extremely hard, and some don’t care about their position at all. Communication is extremely difficult at times within the office, meaning that some of us can get a reply within minutes and other times you will wait nearly days about the replies that may be urgent. Inside the position that I was in, we are not clearly disrespected although you can tell by facial reactions, email replies, and double judgment from certain people that they think we don’t do our jobs. However, those casting judgment do not want to sit in our chair for to actually see what we do. For the compensation you may wonder, what we are paid to do and what we are actually doing are different things. I rate this dissatisfied because there are two different angles of things

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had seeked HR for this. Internal information only that applies to whom it may concern.

    Pros

    Stable company, Good Benefits, pretty good work-life balance

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for growth right now

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes to what's going on in the office and out in the field! There are many employees who are disgruntled right now due to the way we're being treated. There are some people who work really hard and others who barely do anything, yet we get paid the same and they never get in trouble because management either doesn't care or doesn't pay attention. Even when we complain, it seems to fall on deaf ears.

    I worked at Skanska USA Building as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly and professional co-workers. But if you are looking for a place to grow, this is not the place you want to work.

    Cons

    It's a crappy place to work for if you are a contractor. Manager doesn't even bother to respond your email.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everybody equally even if they are not permanent employee.

    Pros

    I believe the senior leadership has some of the brightest people in the industry.

    Cons

    Salaries and bonus are based on popularity and not always skill. People tend to leave because there is more opportunity for growth and pay increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue being open and frank with the project teams.
