    Pros

    The company takes care of hard workers willing to put in the hours and move anywhere at the drop of a hat. They typically promote from within, allowing advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Will overload you to see where you limit out. Most positions require the availability to move around the US/Canada. Many young, inexperienced managers.

    Pros

    Awesome mentoring opportunities for young students interns.

    Incredible range of projects including many mega-jobs.

    VERY accommodating to travel and moving

    Cons

    Not the most competitive pay

    Hit or miss with how busy you'll be for the entire summer. Some interns actually run work and manage subs. Others sleeps in their cubicles

    Advice to Management

    Plan out roles better for interns. Make sure there is actually work for the intern to contribute too once they get on site.

    Pros

    Kiewit is by far the best company that I have ever worked for I love the company and the people

    Cons

    There really isn't anything bad to say other then the company needs to show more moral to its employees or craft.

    Advice to Management

    Show more gratitude for the ones that are out there doing the hard work by this I mean the labor department

    Pros

    Lots of team building within the company to help keep moral high.

    Cons

    Management has the philosophy that everyone is replaceable. Wages seem low for industry standard and people only stick around because of loyalty to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your people that produce and don't make decisions based on employees last names. Its a very clichy company and if you don't get to know the right people you will not advance.
