    They need to make sure their employees are being properly compensated for the hours that they are working. They should be proud of their companies ethics and culture.

    Pros

    Good Benefit Package, nice office

    Cons

    In LA, Skanska Civil Inc. is extremely successful, wins projects, and has a good reputation, but Skanska Building Inc. is not performing at the same level. They speak with clients, but they don't have a strong presence in LA or a team to manage a project.
    The company sometimes reminds me of the Roman Empire: Just like the Roman Empire, this comapny is too large to govern effectively.
    Getting a promotion is a dream. People don't get laid off here, but get "de-promoted."

    Advice to Management

    Can you please have a decent level of presence at the LA office to lead the team, so, the employees would actually work rather than slacking off?
