    Opportunity for responsible tasks. Encouraging learning environment.

    Pros

    Great culture with commitment to customers, employees and sustainability. Very ethical - The company does the right thing "when no one is looking". Very innovative environment. Always looking for ways to improve our operations and develop our talent. strong leadership team that has been in place for a while. excellent customer focus leads to lots of repeat business.

    Cons

    sometimes manages to the "lowest common denominator". - which adds unnecessary policies and procedures. Needs to have more trust in their people and teams. Support services are sometimes given too much input over operations and project teams.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your project teams and people to do the right thing - you can't manage out bad behavior through policies, procedures, guidelines, etc.

    Pros

    The work environment at Skanska was warm, welcoming, encouraging, and all-around fun! My favorite time of the day was morning stretch and flex! I learned so much from my internship and made valuable contacts along the way. While I was there I quickly gathered that the company truly cares about personal development and provides many resources for employees.

    Cons

    I did not have any negatives in my experience.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for being so personable!
