    It was a great experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThis company has a good close family type atmosphere. I loved working here. If you love people, then you'll love working for Turner. At least that is what it seemed like with me being an intern.

    ConsFor me being an intern the only bad thing was being stuck in the office most of the time.

    Intern in the office

    Intern (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsVery good atmosphere to work in. Everyone is friendly and willing to help you (open-door policy). Turner trains you well, and sets you up for success. It is well known that Turner produces excellence and trains their employees for success; therefore around the 5-year mark many Turner employees get poached by other construction companies.

    ConsTurner is a huge company, and it can be difficult trying to network with everyone despite their efforts to organize social events. Unfortunately, this is the case with many big name construction companies, so this didn't bother me too much.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI enjoyed my internship experience with Turner, but I would have liked management to show more of an effort to introduce/socialize with internship-level employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Amazing

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat coworkers, everyone is friendly and always willing to help each other, great culture, awesome projects, cool experiences. Pride in the projects completed. Management is really on top of what they are doing, the president knows everyone and knows everything about the company and continues to improve the company.

    ConsCan't really think of any cons, I would say sometimes difficult to contact certain superts, but most respond quickly and friendly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing

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

    The Best

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsA company that cares about you and your family, truly. Opportunities are created for you if you work hard. Great environment to work with flexibility as needed. If you get knocked down, they are there to help you up.

    ConsNone that I can think of, you can always find something wrong with something a company does but the positive outweigh the negative it is not worth it for me even think about it

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the big guy around as long as we can

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

    Worked to help me reach my goals

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey have a ton of resources at your disposal. They work to get you to follow your career path. If you want to transfer or relocate they will help you.

    ConsThey probably pay less than other commercial contractors. Work hours are all over the board and the older staff expects you to work 6 days a week.
