    I worked at Skanska USA Building full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Office space is nice and you will have access to good hardware and software. I'll miss the coffee machines, that's about it.

    Cons

    Tons of micro management from a lot of unique personalities, never quite sure who your real manager is. Office cliques are in full effect with a lot of old timers setting the standards for how you should act. Poor work/life balance; expect to work a lot of evenings and some weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Define who actual management is. Get in touch with your office staff.
