They need to go back to their roots a bit and look at the values that Peter Kiewit Jr had, specifically, the fact that he felt people were his greatest asset and that they should be treated accordingly.

Company Culture

we are encouraged to learn and grow and provide input

Support from management

we are given the resources and training needed to do o ur jobs

Teamwork

we are encouraged to collaborate and are given opportunities to work outside of our normal area

Freedom to work independently

we are allowed to work out of the box

Internal Communication

we get communication regularly on our goals/direction

Career Development

We are given annual training budgets and encouraged to use them

Overall compensation for your work

I am paid a fair wage for my work

Office / Work Environment

our office is comfortable and when issues arise, the company works to make it better

Environmental Friendliness

we have recycling containers readily available and we have events to clean up local areas

Work-Life Balance

when we have to provide extra time to work, we are compensated with comp-time

Company Image

My company is ethical and a good company to work for, I am proud to do so

Handicapped Accessibility

handicapped stalls in bathrooms, wide doorways, and handicap parking is readily available with ramps and auto-entry doors

Workplace Safety

we are constantly asked to be safe and safety training is offered

Challenging Work

we are dynamic and ever-changing, new technologies are always coming up

Suggestions for improvement

  • Additional parking would be great, but we have a physical limitation, so I understand that. I would prefer if we could think through some decisions better so that rework could be avoided. Some areas could be improved with better accountability requirements, as some areas are too "loose".

What I like about the company

We are given the opportunity to learn on a continual basis, through normal business activities as well as training opportunities. Our annual training budget of $4000 is very good and we are encouraged to use it. We are given the ability to provide our input when decisions are needed and encouraged to think outside of the box to provide the best customer experience possible.

What I dislike about the company

Sometimes we do things too quickly and thus end up doing rework. If some items were better thought through we could save a lot of money, time and effort.

Company Culture

Some employees will sacrifice others to further their careers

Support from management

From my boss yes from his boss absolutely not

Teamwork

Very clickish

Freedom to work independently

Yes

Internal Communication

Lots of employee communication but not one for addressing concerns

Gender Equality

Not many african americans or women who climb the corporate ladder

Attitude towards older colleagues

If you’re a shareholder you’re set but if you’re hired in as a professional from the outside you have to justify your existence daily

Career Development

I had no growth potential and the top level leadership hated my boss so I had no job security

Overall compensation for your work

I was hired with great pay but had few pay increases or stock options despite significant savings and streamlined processes

Office / Work Environment

Yes - nice office, secure building

Environmental Friendliness

Fights for Environmental compliance even when jobs aren’t always environmentally friendly

Work-Life Balance

I worked holidays and weekends without overtime or comp time and was still criticized for not being there by 8 am - even if I worked until 6 pm

Company Image

I loved my job and telling people where I worked and what I did

Job Security

My boss wasn’t supported by the CEO so I felt my job was on the oibe

Handicapped Accessibility

At corporate or offices but job sites don’t accommodate

Workplace Safety

Intense safety culture

Challenging Work

I loved the work and the opportunities

Inclusive / Diverse

Loves people who offer great ideas as long as they are asking for them

Suggestions for improvement

  • Flexible work hours, telework, comp time, additional vacation and stock that doesn’t require taking out a loan to buy it.

What I like about the company

I learned a lot and the project managers were innovative and treated me well. I could set my travel schedule and attend training and conferences from the top of the industry. They paid for professional memberships and fitness activities. They paid my zoo membership.

What I dislike about the company

They had no career growth path unless your were an engineer. There was little respect for expertise in my career field. They hired veterans into professional positions and didn’t develop or onboard them into the position. Senior supervisors would sabotage you to protect themselves so you worried about getting fired almost daily. I knew they had it out for my boss so I found another job and he was fired less than a year later.

Company Culture

Old boys club. Impossible to succeed as a female.

Challenging Work

The work itself wasnt challenging but receiving information in a timely manner from the field was a nightmare. Also difficult to do good work when the rules keep changing arbitrarily.

Suggestions for improvement

  • A management overhaul would be a good place to start.

What I like about the company

I worked with some great people and learned about working in a large company where tasks were very compartmentalized.

What I dislike about the company

My biggest issue was the constant sabotage from management and field offices. It's impossible to do my job without the correct and current information and when the rules/processes seem to change weekly with no reason at all.
