    The best in Construction

    Sep 23, 2022 - Senior Project Engineer in Seattle, WA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Skanska is the best contractor buisness. Worklife is not really a thing in construction which is not good long term. This is the same across multiple companies but If I had to say Skanska has the best balance.

    Cons

    Not a future option of remote work available.

    Good company that pays well and seems to care about its employees

    Just another construction company

    Sep 16, 2022 - Assistant Superintendent in Bronx, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Stock program and Job Bonus, Compensated for working weekends, Safe work environment

    Cons

    Lowest Paying Construction Company, Favoritism and Politics earn promotions (not work ethic, exceptional annual reviews, job dedication, positional knowledge, or raving client reviews to management), company holds on to lazy and unknowledgeable employees, they no longer seem to have the goal to invest heavily in younger generations as far as hiring quality personnel and training them to excel, no longer positioned on projects based on your experience and knowledge of the work ypur just a name on a paper to fill the role, high turnover rate especially in younger generation, fills project management cost up with expensive management (VP's & Exec's and countless PM's) instead of needed field/project engineers or supers which doubles the work load, expect to be set-up to fail regardless of your efforts to succeed and know management will find a reason to blame you, horrible subcontractors (minority or not) are reawarded additional contracts regardless of their dismal track records again, placing incredible strain on the project staff, if you're 30 or younger starting on a project don't expect to have an opinion or suggestion because you'll only be looked at like the young one who knows nothing.

    Quality Place to Work

    Aug 30, 2022 - Assistant Superintendent in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You work on complex interesting construction projects. Arguably the "coolest" ones in the metro region. Upper management are class acts and lead by example. The culture in the company is overall very good, people committed to doing the right thing and cooperating with one another.

    Cons

    Difficult projects requiring lots of hours. Safety is one of the biggest focuses and is often times a nuisance to the contractors you try and work with. Some of the emphasis on safety policies is too much.
