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

    Pros

    Very established large company. They have work in a lot of markets. When things go wrong, they have a lot of resources.

    Cons

    National contractor will few regional opportunities. There is a lot of moving on a moments notice. If you're young and want to move around a lot, they may be for you. They have a high turnover under five years. The stock program is their lure but offered to very few which really took away from their pool of qualified employees.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with others in the company. All the decisions seemed to come at the last minute. After a few years, it almost seemed like they never really have a plan.
