    I have been working at Kiewit Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great job security, there is always work somewhere they can send you to. Exciting projects that take you all over the country, decent benefits, 4 weeks of PTO. If work is your #1 priority and you enjoy working construction this is where you want to be.

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance, 10+ hour days and a lot of Saturdays and Sundays. Management gives very little notice when you are being moved to new projects, sometimes on days to move across the country. Most people are maxed out on their PTO because you don't have any time to use it. It's very difficult to have a life away from work at any stage of your career here. You have to fight to use any of the benefits they offer or you'll never get them.

    Advice to Management

    In my time here they have been trying to figure out why there is such a high turnover rate especially with younger 2-5 years employees. I don't think that will ever change unless they start to allow employees to prioritize life outside of work. Also, the pay is not as good as it seems when you learn what you will be sacrificing. Employees should not have to fight for per diem and trips home to see their family.

    I have been working at Kiewit Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company has offices in every part of the country and performs nearly all types of construction projects from power, LNG, solar, wastewater, bridges, offshore, etc. The learning opportunities have been above and beyond.

    Cons

    Talent alone will not help you. Most promotions and wages are based off of years of service within the company. Very little line cutting. Management differs from district office to district office. Certain districts and the way they are managed leave a lot to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Kiewit is an old business, but the times are constantly changing. Do more to attract top tier talent and get witht he modern ages. The things that used to matter 20 to 30 years ago....when a lot of senior management started, dont matter anymore.

    Helpful staff and supervisors. Good people. Housing provided. You can learn as much as you're willing to put the effort into learning.

    I have been working at Kiewit Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very competitive. Amount of experienced personnel in the company is very high so you will learn a lot.

    Cons

    You will move... a lot. You will work... a lot. 60+ hours a week is typical.

    Advice to Management

    Try to hire more people per job to allow employees a better work/life balance.
