Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Project Controls Engineer

I have been working at Bechtel full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Great opportunity, variety and excitement in the projects we do.

Cons

Re-location to new projects, sometimes long hours,

Current Employee - Carpenter

I have been working at Kiewit Corporation full-time for less than a year

Pros

If you want to work a lot of overtime this is a great company to go to.

Cons

My only complaint is you have to use a pencil sharpener for a carpenter pencil? First company I've ever worked for that requires that.

Advice to Management

More promotion from the field.
