    I have been working at Kiewit Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will have the opportunity to be apart of very interesting projects, and each one of them will be custom and one-of-a-kind. The people are great to work with and quickly become family.

    Cons

    Like any commercial general contractor, you must be willing to go were the work is. The company has very high expectations of their workers which requires them to operate with many different responsibilities.

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

    Pros

    PTO and 401k are very good!

    Cons

    You must be apart of the “chosen” to achieve advancement within the company. Doesn’t matter how hard you work. Actually the less hard you work the further you’ll advance. Favoritism is a real factor with Kiewit which is very sad. Pay is also based on favoritism which the management will tell you otherwise. Special deals are made for some, but not others who have the same experience and situations. Also, the hours can be quite strenuous for no compensation or rewards.

    Advice to Management

    See cons - Treat all employees the same and stop the favoritism. It’s a real issue management ought to prioritize looking into. Also, underpaying employees is an issue too.
