    I worked at Skanska full-time

    Pros

    Competitive Salary
    Decent Hours
    Good Benefits

    Cons

    Management was horrible. My boss was nasty, cruel, and constantly undermined everything I did. They are also pretty cheap about reimbursing your expenses. Difficult to get perks like company car, credit card, etc. Not a lot of direction or training. Had a horrible experience while there.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your long term managers that don't know how to treat people with respect and dignity.

    I worked at Skanska (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They try to make it a good atmosphere
    They're upfront about their policies so you're not going to be surprised

    Cons

    They can make you move A LOT, to follow projects. For settled people it might just be that they fly you back every weekend but you're still not going to be in your own bed for a lot of your career
    There can be seriously painful amounts of downtime if projects don't line up so the boredom can be nigh unbearable at times
    Pay is not amazing
