      Upper Management are not good people

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good benefits and opportunities to invest in the pubic company.

      Cons

      Upper management has poor communication, once they send you off to a project not under the main office you are forgotten about, no career development, not given proper tools or knowledge before being thrown into a job, long hours, no opportunities for raises, no one looks out for one another and they will throw you under the bus in a heartbeat.

      Great company; nightmare project.

      Pros

      Skanska is perhaps the most progressive and forward-thinking company within the CM/GC space. Globally they offer many benefits and programs which are unfortunately rare in the industry, such as employee ownership, great training, and inter-office exchange programs. The Portland office has accessible management, a great staff, and a variety of projects throughout the community. Skanska is also the most committed to worker safety in the industry.

      Cons

      The Portland office generally performs well and supports its employees, but the largest project supporting semiconductor R&D operations in Hillsboro does not. This project operates on an island from other Skanska Portland projects, limiting access to the programs that make Skanska great. The client demands are not buffered by executive management, leading to burnout and a constant overtime expectation among the staff with no options to rotate out to projects away from this client. Most of the processes in use at this project are unique to this client, which further silos the project staff. Unless you specifically enjoy working long hours in semiconductor manufacturing under constant deadline sprints with a complicated matrix of vaguely defined success metrics, do not work for the semiconductor client in Hillsboro. Any other Skanska project is excellent.

      Pros

      Your paycheck is good. Will not bounce (over-draft). Room for advancement you grow, learn at your pace, to include cross train into a different field of work.

      Cons

      Long hours 12 hour shifts hard work and you must preform what you promised. No bull-shit if you say you can do it you better be able to do it. Not for lazy people.
