"A career defining experience that gave me a great summer: Skanska was exciting to work for."
Pros: 
  • Colleagues really make an effort to ensure that interns are well integrated into teams
  • Interns gain valuable experience and real insight at Skanska, giving them potential for future careers with a leading engineering company
  • The tasks being assigned to interns ensure that they have a good level of responsibility
  • Skanska invest lots of time and resources in intern training and development
Cons: 
  • Sometimes there is not much variety in the work assigned to interns
  • Having more project-specific information provided before they start could ensure that interns are aware of what they would be working on
  • Interns could benefit from having a longer internship to gain more practical experience
  • More contact with line managers, with a review halfway through, could help interns' development
