    I have been working at Kiewit Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Kiewit has a great culture. Being formed in 1884, there is great pride in a construction company that has been around for that long. The benefits are amazing. Expect to pay $8-10 per week in medical. The company also matches your 401K contribution up to 6% and also dumps another 4% in at the end of the year.

    Cons

    Long hours, moving around a lot, pay is average to below average. You'll notice that the company will hire craft tradesmen into management without knowing how to be in an office setting. The field engineers do 90% of the computer work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the talent you have vs. recruiting craft into the staff role. The employees working beside these people work just as hard and you hire them with twice the perks. Working 60+ hours per week shouldn't be justified by paying a mere 10% field premium.
