    I worked at Kiewit Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company culture and pride cannot be beat. Very systematic tried and true approaches to the work. The phrase "train your replacement" was practiced and not just preached. You will get alot thrown at you (estimating, cost control, field engineering). You will be challenged with responsibilities from the time you start. The hands on experiences and opportunities to grow are fantastic if heavy construction is your passion and you do not mind working hard and making sacrifices (relocation/long hours) to get the opportunity.

    Cons

    At the beginning of your career with Kiewit expect your work/life balance to be all work no life. In order to take advantage of the opportunities you must be willing to: relocate (multiple times), work long hours, work weekends as necessary. NOTE: Working for Kiewit is not for the faint of heart, you must be willing to sacrifice to get the experience. You can be on a job in Illinois on Tuesday and be told that you need to be on a job in Louisiana by next week.
