I have been working at Kiewit Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great for a first job, there is a high base salary and you will gain good experience with good benefits (eg health, not work life balance)

Cons

When you hit five years your salary becomes less competitive and with the poor work life balance, consistent moving and decreasing value of the stock program the benefits of staying do not outweigh the benefits of leaving. There is also a very rigid work structure, no room for "thinking out of the box". There is a form or template for everything and feedback on process improvements fall thought the cracks.

Advice to Management

Let people stay on TDY instead of moving them, increase salaries for those who are not getting a significant amount of stock early on and let people manage their time they will still get their work done.

    I worked at Kiewit Corporation as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Safety is their first priority and the spend a ton of time/money training employees. Privately owned. Very good benefits holidays etc. competitive salaries. Lots of room to move up is you stay with the company. Great people, company constantly growing and a lot of amazing projects going on.

    Cons

    This could go either way for different people but Kiewit will move you around a lot in order to give their employees experience with different projects and locations. They are a big corporation but I don't think that detracts from their efficiency or their relations with clients. Lastly people will talk about the work/life balance with Kiewit. You definitely are expected to put in the extra hours more weeks than not but that seems typical in such a competitive industry and anyone just starting in a company should expect nothing less.
