    Former Employee - Field Engineer Intern in Los Angeles, CA (US)

    I worked at Kiewit Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent training, fast promotions if you're willing to work hard, sociable and young co-workers, big emphasis on safety and doing things right the first time, efficient meetings and operations, no BS.

    Cons

    no work life balance, 5am-6pm or later 6 days a week, could get a move letter with little time in advance, could get pigeonholed into a small field

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    should raise pay for engineers who slave away
