    I have been working at Mass Electric full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to advance in your career, top notch benefits, great training program.

    Cons

    Base salary is "competitive", but cost-of-living adjustments are significantly outdated and need to be re-assessed to fairly compensate in more expensive areas. Constant relocation is required, so get ready to always be on the move and don't try to plant your roots anywhere. Work/life balance is poor - they'll drive you into the ground - lots of nights, weekends, and 60+ hour work weeks on a 40-hour salary.

    I have been working at Mass Electric (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a great place to work. A Kiewit Construction Subsidiary, so a great name to have on the resume. Get to learn really fast, and you are given a great deal of responsibility.

    Cons

    You have to drive a lot to get to different fields, but it is part of the job. So, not really a negative.

    I worked at Mass Electric (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best 401k matching program, best benefits and if you want to travel you will enjoy working for them.

    Cons

    Salary, no paid overtime, I have worked a lot of overtime in my life time and told them I was good with working no more than 50 hours a week. I was assured there would be limited overtime but that was not the case.

    Advice to Management

    Kiewit preaches life work balance but they do not live up to it.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits (medical, dental, vision, 401k, etc.)
    Lots of opportunity for travel and relocation
    Commitment to safety, quality, and compliance programs

    Cons

    If you are assigned to a project location you will be subjected to long work hours and a lot of stress. There is great pressure to fit into the existing culture. It is definitely an asset to be a young, white male in this company.

    The customer is opposite of Mass Electric.

    Sure would have liked another gig. I worked hard for you guys.

    I have been working at Mass Electric full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very competitive salary. Plenty of opportunity for motivated individuals. The benefits package has different options to suit individual needs. Home leave offered at decent intervals with all travel expenses paid.

    Cons

    Must be willing to be mobile. If you are a family man, as i am, be sure the family is on board for the traveling. The training is lacking a bit. I was placed on my first project with very little heads up on the expectations of my position.

    Advice to Management

    We must better prepare superintendent's before sending them to the field. The sink or swim approach may cost us some good employees if they become overwhelmed to quickly.
