Approves of CEO

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

Pros

All the resources you need are at your finger tips when you work for Kiewit. Everyone is willing to share ideas and help each other succeed. The work is interesting and satisfying. They pay pretty well.

Cons

Unfortunately, when I worked for Kiewit the economy was at the bottom of the downturn. Kiewit was a standstill in their estimating department, which was where I was placed. Us interns did not have any substantial to do.

    I worked at Kiewit Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great experience and opportunities getting to work on huge projects and dealing with expensive operations. Got to see a little bit of everything from office work and estimating to field operations.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance sucks, I was working 70hrs a week with every other weekend off. I was moved around monthly from the day I got there. I was basically used to catch certain parts of the job to where they needed to be and once caught up I was tossed away.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire someone make sure you actually need them instead of having someone move across the country to get laid off 6 months later. Employees don't really matter as much as the stock holders shares.
