Overall Great Company
Discipline Superintendent (Current Employee), omahaAugust 10, 2014
Challenging work, good pay and excellent benefits, many opportunities to learn various aspects of the business. Management is good, makes noticeable effort to take care of employees, at times it can feel like a person has to many bosses. Coworkers come from all sorts of backgrounds, for the most part easy to work with, team oriented.

It is an enjoyable – more... job, provides for very interesting challenging projects. The people that work here are some of the best in the business. This work does involve working long hours a lot of times. I'd say the hardest part of the job is frequent moving. Even that has a silver lining though because you get to see various parts of the country. – less

Great learning experience, not so much work-life balance
Structures Field Engineer (Former Employee), El Segundo, CAJuly 16, 2014
Pros: free lunches thursday, great benefits and matching 401k, great for entry level engineers looking to learn about the construction world
Cons: 12 hours is a short work day, great work ethic goes unrecognized, company is more about the image than attending to employees needs
As an entry level engineer, I came into an environment with not a lot of training available, but a huge amount of responsibility. I quickly learned everything relies on planning. The most difficult part of the job was communication between different levels of on the job. Management had one schedule, while us engineers went off their schedule, then the – more... whole thing changed the next day, and what you spent hours working on doesn't mean anything until 3 weeks down the road. I did enjoy connecting with the craft, actually checking all the work, and getting to use a builder's level everyday. – less

Horrible Company To Work For
NDE Tech (Former Employee), Kiewit, Ingleside TxApril 28, 2014
Cons: no room for advancement
Engineers are overworked. Very high turnover ratio, engineers get burned out and don't last more than two or three years. They advertise "Be part of the Kiewit family". There is no loyalty at the Kiewit Yard in Ingleside. Poor management, favoritism and way too much office drama. No room for advancement unless you kiss up or are in "The Click". Pay – more... raises are nonexistent. It doesn't matter how much you learn or how much responsibility you take on, hourly staff personnel get a whole 25 cent raise each year and that's if your lucky to get that. – less

Commercial and Industrial Electrician (Former Employee), Sioux City, IAApril 14, 2014
Pros: free water all you could drink and morning and afternoon excercise
Cons: no too many
This job was mainly manned by electricians from other locals (cities) it was difficult for that alone but the guys made it fun and very interesting we learned to do things in many ways since everyone did things different where they come from but yet we all got along some better then others. Management was good they were very concerned about safety.

HR (Former Employee), Omaha, NEApril 7, 2014
If you're not a golden child you won't get very far...they definitely play the political favorites. If you're not that AGGRESSIVE person...but a person who comes to work everyday and does their job..you won't get very far. That doesn't go very far with this company.

Intern (Former Employee), Brownsville, TXApril 5, 2014
I worked with Kiewit on a summer internship. I spent one to two weeks in each aspect of the company to get a well rounded education of the construction process during my time with the company. The co-workers were helpful and the management gave great guidance during the summer.
