    Make $ at Kiewit, but lose your family

    Pros

    Used to be for the stock... not so much any more! Kiewit Construction, or Peter Kiewit Sons Inc, or Pacific Building District (whatever it is currently called) tends to give stock after a couple of years, just enough to get you encouraged to stick around (the "golden handcuffs"). Also the safety record at Kiewit is top notch. The crews that put work in place are great, planning the work and execution are unbeatable. It is just a matter of turning the good things up and trying to take advantage of the good people that are still there before they get fed up and leave!

    Cons

    You wife will get fed up with the schedule (long hours, travel, etc.) and cheat on you, taking half of your stock that you had been working so hard for in the first place! There are an incredible number of folks that have been divorced in the years I worked with Kiewit. They spend too much time away from family/ friends and the wives eventually get tired of it. Upper management is a mess. They have folks in senior management positions that are less than worthless. Also Kiewit tends to beat-up its subcontractors to try to squeeze every $ out of their projects.

    Pros

    401K match + bonus at the end of the year, you can also do a backdoor Roth contribution (Fidelity) PTO - no need of approval, just enough time notification to Manager Good experience for entry level job Competitive salary + 6 month evaluation for a raise A lot of traveling, so a lot of sightseeing United Healthcare w/ or without HSA - Good coverage Big corporation so multiple industries - Different jobsites, projects

    Cons

    PTO - You can accrued a lot of hours but you'll never have the time to take it, which is good if you quit. You get 4 weeks pay max if you have less than 5 years with the company. Career growth is limited to the network you make and if people like you. So working hard will not necessarily guaranteed you a promotion. Especially if your direct report is a contractor or someone new with the company. They wont do your RTF and therefore never get a promotion. ALOT OF TRAVELING, I moved to a different state every six months since I started with the company. Because of the 70+ hours of work you put in, you dont get a chance to use the health system so you just waste money. Its very big, you basically worked for many companies even though is "one". You'll very soon find out that nothing is standardized and that one district will have a very different way to make something "work", which is not necessarily efficient. Last but not least - Unequal base salary. We are in a different time where your co-worker will just easily tell you how much he makes. At which point you realized you are quite under pay ~ 10% less
