    Pros

    They used to be among the best. Getting bigger has not meant getting better.

    They used to be among the best but no longer. It is not the same company anymore.

    I worked at Skanska USA Building full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best paid in the industry
    good benefits
    fun company parties
    lots of junk you take take home after a project is done

    Cons

    If you work in the field, prepare to be overworked and under appreciated, especially compared to the people who get to work in the office. They will work 30-40 hrs a week (salary) while all field workers will work 50-70 hrs (salary)
    They will not care about your family. You will work weekends and holidays for no additional money or days off, while people in the office will get extra time off. ("Office will be closing at 2pm on Friday for Memorial Day")
    Their human resources department is unorganized, uneducated, and unprofessional to a criminal degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop living like kings while looking down on the surfs.
