I have been working at Kiewit Corporation full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Ability to have your voice heard, even if you're fresh out of school.
Above-average amount of responsibility put on new members willing to take on a challenge.
Excellent avenues for collaboration enhancing your ability to build a strong intracompany network.

Cons

Team members aren't necessarily rewarded for the challenges they take on.
Promotions are based heavily on seniority.
Can at times have an environment that is competitive to a fault within the company.

Advice to Management

Although cross-training is preached, it is rarely practiced. A few HR functions could enhance this:
1) Create a consistent, current org chart.
2) Career postings within the organization should convey who the hiring manager actually is.
