    Satisfactory internship in civil engineering/construction management.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsTurner offers many diverse, hands-on opportunities for current students and recent graduates. Job responsibilities are well matched to skill level, with many chances to learn more while not overwhelming young employees.

    ConsPay is fairly low as far as internships are concerned.

    Good company, however, lip service to Work-Life-Balance

    Assistant Engineer (Former Employee)

    Project Intern

    Project Intern/Co-Op (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsGreat introduction to construction project / field engineering. This internship was on site and involved many aspects of construction, from construction documents to meeting with consulting engineers, the architects, utility and regulatory officials and clients. The project staff including executives were all helpful. My Mentor was very helpful and showed real concern. The PM was top notch.

    ConsThe human resources department would have HR interns handle your file. Just like I would make errors so would they. The mistakes that were not corrected prevented me from participating in all the events they mentioned in the on-boarding process and I feel I did not get the same experience other interns did.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave an HR rep comb through interns file to ensure accuracy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Manager

    Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat company. The benefits programs are the best in the industry and Turner treats all of their employees very well. There is no glass ceiling... work hard and you will do well.

    ConsTurner is committed to the happiness of their employees; however, construction work is somewhat transient... be prepared to move for new opportunities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNothing at this time.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great people to work for but the last few years and a rough market have been challenging

    Estimating Engineer (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsGood people to work with, I've never felt overworked, great benefits and 'family' feel, very reputable company and opportunity for advancement within the company

    ConsTwo complaints: lots of people moving around (projects, departments) on short notice and we haven't been as successful in the market recently as I think anyone would like but that's accross the board in the industry

    Advice to Senior ManagementWith the recent 'leaning' of the company, would like to see high performers within the company compensated more

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Best Job I've ever had

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New Brunswick, NJ

    ProsI work in an office on the non-construction side of the house. Management is great as well as my co-workers. This is truly a team atmosphere.

    ConsCan work longer hours since I deal with the entire country but it can be rewarding at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more people focused.
