    Pros

    Kiewit is a great company to work for. There are plenty of great sources for information that you can reach out to accomplish the tasks that you need. You also get to work on some of the coolest projects all around the nation

    Cons

    Standard issues with all big construction companies long hours, working on weekends, and having to relocate to find work. The job can also become stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Think a little more about your employees. We take great care to make sure that the men and women working in the field are taken care of but the staff gets left to the way side.
