    I worked at Kiewit Power Constructors full-time

    Pros

    -Decent pay and solid benefits. If you stay with the company long enough there is the option to buy stock. Puts you in debt with the company that you have to pay off though.

    -Get to meet a lot of quality people.

    -Looks good on your resume after you decide to move on and find something better.

    Cons

    -Work/Life balance is non existent. Working 12 hour days with 6 and sometimes 7 days a week during an outage.

    -Constantly moving. Most locations are in the middle of nowhere.

    -You are a replaceable body to upper management.

    Pros

    A lot of options for relocation, and short or long-term location changes. Lots of re-hires.

    Terrible training programs, lots of rush work demands, out of touch management, still very much ‘good ole boys club’.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the program & get up to date with technology.
