Skanska are not at the forefront of ethics and green for no reason. their work is important and they treat their staff with respect and understanding. There is flexibility which allows for a good work life balance however it is unfortunate that the salary is lower than some competitors. The benefits package as a whole does ease this notion though so it is a trade off. Good confidence in management, overall a great place to work.
Pros
Exceptional ethics and culture
Cons
Good benefits, but low salary

Skanska do not live up-to their core values and practise what they preach if it has a detrimental effect on their bottom line. Penny pinching organisation that provide little to no training and no prospect of development. The Senior Leadership Team in my current operating unit do not inspire leadership, confidence and as such, no direction.
Cons
No clear strategy

It’s a good place to work if you are visible to Skanska. My line managers on the projects were not Skanska staff and were always keen to promote people from their own company Also I found that even when I outlined the achievements, challenges and future objectives of my job it didn’t matter anything the line manager said usually overrode my opinions even though the line manager Skanska wanted to talk to was not my line manager on the project
Pros
Flexible working hours
Cons
No Support from Skanska line manager when I was on the project

After working for skanska for 4 years they employed my brother and paid him more than me. No annual salary check and pay is all over the place. Good company but lack of professionalism

Enjoyable place of work, training and developments opportunities are very good within the company training matrix. Working as a small team has many benefits, it felt more like a family than work colleagues.
