    I have been working at Skanska USA (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are average. Vacation time is average.

    Cons

    Very poor work life balance. Long hours are expected without commensurate pay. A 55 hour work week at 40 hours pay is the norm. There are not a lot of women/minorities in the leadership roles.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify your talent network. Actively recruit women and minorities. Consider that employees have lives outside of work. If you expect people to work a mandatory 10 hour day in a salaried position, make the salary reflect the hours. No one wants to work for free.
