    Pros

    All the tools you need, if they don’t have them they will get them. They put a lot of time and planning into properly planning a job.

    Not many down sides I really enjoy working there

    Keep up the good work

    I worked at Kiewit Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment with the other staff, the salary was fairly good and had benefits package.

    Cons

    Poor communication due to the size of the project and that head office was in the United States. Also difficulties due to a change over in payroll systems. Also had to work almost every statutory holiday due to a weekly payroll and the deadlines associated with that.

    Advice to Management

    Overall a good work experience. Salaries of employees need to be monitored carefully for experience and education.
