    I worked at Skanska full-time

    Pros

    Great at offering development opportunities, although a tad lacking in the supporting functions. Project exposure is good and can move departments to gain wider experience.

    Cons

    Long hours are expected as standard, very political esp within the HR function. They do not lead by example.

    Current Employee - Site Engineer in London, England
    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Skanska full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits package (car, train fares, 28 days holiday plus BH's, pension, share scheme) and a half decent salary. Will support you academically should you be given the opportunity to do so.

    Cons

    Long hours on site and a lengthy commute if you're not in the immediate vicinity of London. 14 hours door to door is the norm. Expect longer hours than that at busy periods. It sounds ungrateful but the company car choice is pretty poor.
