    Pros

    It used to be a good fast paced company that allowed personal growth. That has changed.

    Great benefits, amazing facilities including a fitness center, cafe, mechanic. Located in a beautiful area, with fun local activities throughout the year.

    I worked at Kiewit Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Be cautious if relocating, Omaha is a great place to be but not much SAP work in the area. Is a wonderful construction company but don't let their deep pockets & resources fool you. Business is business here.

    Cons

    Remember employment at will, they laid of higher paid IT both SAP & non SAP even though company still profitable. Did not matter that employees had been A rated, they believed lesser experience could carry on.

    Advice to Management

    Awesome construction company, is a challenge to move into areas that are not your core competency.

    "Concerning Corporate Culture"

    Pros

    Flexible hours and vacation, communal-esque workplace, interaction with work sites across the country, some opportunity to transfer to other positions.

    Cons

    There's a concerning corporate culture that actively disenfranchises the low-rung workers, there's no consultation in transferring or increasing job duties, and little-to-no response to feedback. Work-life balance can become intrusive very fast. Many employees don't show concern about it, but inside are bothered by it at least a little. This can happen with such a large work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Integrate yourself with your staff, even though there may be many of them. Encourage them to address their pains, and understand that they have valid input as they do the daily work.

    I worked at Kiewit Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    401K, opportunity to travel, exciting projects, (usually) job security. Decent benefits, PTO, opportunity for stocks (if you kiss the right you know what)

    Cons

    No life outside work in Omaha market. Saturdays/Sundays required. Only reason to work here is to have that "Kiewit" experience on your resume. If you get hired on be aggressive in your starting pay negotiations. They're banking on getting you on for the cheap. Work there a maximum of 4/5 years and get out. Go to a company that will treat you better.

    Advice to Management

    Who cares, they don't give a hoot anyways. Let's just imagine the most unfavorable things you could say about a company, now go even lower...just beneath that. Scum management.
