    Pros

    Ethical company, takes care of their employees

    Cons

    The "local government" is a dictatorship that you should never cross.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the lower-level employees openly, with no fear of reprisal.

    Pros

    They encourage employees to further their education. The people I worked with were very competent and dedicated. Large company with many opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Very large company. Hard to implement all rules. With large companies comes lots of paperwork.

    Advice to Management

    If there is no reason to let someone go then you should give them the choice of transferring to another office.

    Pros

    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

    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 Management

    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

    None except they have a lot of work

    Cons

    Since different areas/ locations virtually act as P&L's the management of these leads to individual fiefdoms and cause friction between units on joint projects and the level of integrity in some groups is based on how cheep the people can be bought

    Advice to Management

    Stick with core values and not with most money for a division managers bonus.
