productive and fun place to work
Fabrication Lead Planner (Former Employee), EdmontonMay 14, 2012
Pros: comraderie, helping and leading one another
Cons: lack of communications from upper management
Very busy environment but fun at the same time.
Without team work success is slower.
Lack of communications with upper management
Co-workers are excellent! We work hard and still manage to de-stress ourselves.
Hardest part of the job is not being recognized for the hard work the team has put in. And only one person gets the credits.
Having a good team – more... and seeing that we accomplish our targets is very rewarding. – less

40 Ton Rock Trucks, 980 loader, Excavator (Former Employee), Toba Inlet, British ColumbiaMay 2, 2012
Pros: excellent equipment workers staff and first nation
Cons: weather conditions, mountain slides, accidents
Worked with Kiewit on the most hardest project on the west coast of BC - Toba/ Montrose Hydro Electric Power Project. Very tuff area due to how remote, steep mountains and changing weather conditions. We had some very hard and sad days and lost some good co-workers and friends. The staff and management were excellent and treated me like family. The – more... project was one I will never forget nor the people and friends I made on that project. – less

Company that Does Not Care About Employee Safety
Surveyor (Former Employee), Vancouver BCJanuary 10, 2012
Pros: good pay
Cons: employee deaths, injuries
Multiple accidents occurred while I was employed there. When you try to report an incident the safety team ignores you. If you get injury compensation you will lose your job.
In addition, you are told to keep an eye out for environmental impacts but then ignored if you report them, as well.

Good opportunity for young professionals if you are up for it
Project Engineer (Current Employee), Foth Worth, TXSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: hours company culture and work life balance
Excellent benefits with fair compensation, if one is a young recent college graduate there can be ample opportunity depending on the job. Worked 70-80 hrs a week but again was good experience. If you are up for moving and living the life of a gypse it is a good gig. Do not let them hang the golden carrot in front of you with the promise for stock one – more... day. The company has grown to much and stock is very difficult to come by. Don not get me wrong its good if you are in it for the long haul, however be prepared to be worked like a dog and have no personal life or time with family and friends. If you are up for all of the above then there is an opportunity for you. Very high burnout rate and turnover and there is a reason for that. – less

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
