    I have been working at Skanska full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good supportive teams and management Good opportunities to be developed Good salary Challenging and interesting projects Work life balance is great!

    Cons

    Inconsistent approach to staff climbing the ladder - you often find CM's and PM's performing the same role The management approach is soft which is ultimately (in my opinion) is making the company less profitable The roles are mixed, a CM could be expected to do:- site management, package management, design management and be heavily involved in the commercial reviews. When an individual is trying to do all of the above you often find they do not do any one role very well.

    Current Employee - Highway Design Engineer in Cambridge, England

    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Skanska full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Work/life balance is really high ( it's the best in all 8 companies I've been) - There is no stress on your shoulders - Colleagues are very friendly and helpful - At least 2 days a month you were spending it doing some type of training - Managers are very good on leadership skills, very laid down, down to earth - Great culture ( it's the best in all 8 companies I've been) - Best company at building project management experience

    Cons

    - They didn't take into consideration my career progression desires and that was the reason for leaving. - They recognized I am very good with BIM and software and they wanted me to develop into that direction but the salaries paid inside the business were extremely low. Even though I told them I want to go into project management, they were giving me more and more BIM work. - Project managers were paid very well but the engineers were around approx. 28k when most of the small consultancies pay 45k in the region. Some technicians where paid 14k-17k which is the poverty limit in Cambridge. - They did make differences between foreigners and their British counterparts. Most of the foreigners were extremely underpaid and there were almost no career progression opportunities for them. - For an experienced highway engineer with technical skills, they do quite easy projects in the design department
