    Pros

    Good steady work they make sure you get 40 hrs even when there slow.

    Cons

    The worse parking lot situation ever. Make sure you try to get the most money coming in cause they don’t give raises too often. Lowest top pay of all the companies in our area.

    I have been working at Kiewit Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits and work stability

    Cons

    No flexibility with work schedule. High turnover. Mostly new people. Call center environment (call after call after call) You have so much information to learn in short period of time. Stressful environment.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t overwork your good employees. Distribute work evenly not just to one or two people in the team. Listen to your team when they tell you change needs to happen or you will keep loosing good hard working employees. Treat everyone equally. Say something when others are slacking off and taking too many breaks or very long breaks. We need people to be logged in and ready to work by 8:00am not 8:05 or 8:15am this affects...

    I worked at Kiewit Corporation full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Kiewit is a very stable company with a storied history. Being employee owned, they don't have please external shareholders with short-term gains. This frees management to engage in longer term planning and it is evident in their longevity. Kiewit is also a highly ethical company with great corporate values that include taking good care of their employees. More than words, this is proven with highly competitive pay, benefits...

    Cons

    No company is perfect and even the founder of Kiewit believed in continuous improvement. So, change is expected and usually for the better. The technology group itself went through many reorganizations during my tenure, thus I had more bosses and physical moves than years with the company. This was mostly due to my job responsibilities as a PM and the transformation itself. However, it is not sustainable, nor ideal for...

      I have been working at Kiewit Corporation full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Great pay for a first job after graduating college Younger generations (20-40 y/o) are high-energy people and driven

      Cons

      Very political with raises, promotions, etc. "Promotions" do not come with a pay raise - raises are completely at the discretion of the higher-ups, which is where the politics come in Company "Lifers" have no regard for safety or quality and directly cause the company to loose time and money.

      Advice to Management

      Company "Lifers" have no regard for safety or quality and directly cause the company to loose time and money. Kiewit will not replace or weed out these individuals, instead bouncing them around between jobs until they cause enough damage to get put in a position where their responsibilities are essentially none.

      Pros

      Kiewit has Great benefits and great insurance

      Cons

      you only get opportunity to move higher if you are good at socializing with the higher up at the bar especially. Provides you opportunity only if you work to keep your boss happy.

      Advice to Management

      please be fair to employee whether in field or office since if you dont work in office field cannot accomplish their goals . And during annual review please stop giving reason as field get higher raises since thats where the money is made and office people dont get that high raises.
