      Pros

      Big company with tons of resources. You will get plenty of chance if you are willing to put in the work.

      Cons

      Be prepared for long long long hours. If you are in Construction side of things, there will be no work life balance. You will be lucky to get weekend off, mostly just one day off. High turnover.

      Great Company Great People Bad Work Life Balance

      Nov 1, 2021 - Construction Superintendent in Santa Fe Springs, Optional[CA]
      Recommend

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Tons of opportunity for learning -Constantly Busy -Ability to move into different roles -Good combination of office and field work to keep things interesting -Most people are really awesome to work around -Firm but friendly environment -Company vehicle and gas card -6% 401k match with up to 4% extra based on performance at end of year -I started off making 60k in 2016 and ended making 102k in 2021 -There are good monetary rewards but youll be burning the midnight oil to get them. I enjoyed my time at Kiewit, but as a Civil Engineering major I felt like it became pretty simple to figure a scope of work out, but it took a lot of time to optimize the operations to make money for the company.

      Cons

      -12 hour work days were standard for the 5 years -The company stock program seems like a fraternity -The work is mostly simple but you have tons of tasks to get done in a day -The more time the tradesman in the field need your assistance outdoors the less time you have to do your work so you end up having to stay extra for office work at the end of the day -Saturdays used to be required by Kiewit now they are on an as needed basis, but they are almost always needed It's probably all construction corporations in general but work life balance is pretty bad. It becomes difficult to use PTO because you end up with a stack of work to do when you get back. Someone will cover the minimum of your work when you are gone just to get by, but you have to deal with any money losses, RFIs, quality mess ups etc when you get back. Leaving before 5 PM makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up because you know everyone is staring at you, or someone might make a comment about you "getting to leave early." I felt like the company stock program was a way to lock you into the company because you usually wont be offered it until you are a few years in. I hear the rewards after a good 7-10 years of owning stock are tremendous, but you'll also be working some long long hours during those years. In order to try out design you'd have to either move to the office in Denver, or Kansas. Don't join the Southern California District hoping to get some design experience as there if little change of that happening.
