I have been working at Turner Construction full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Is always on the cutting edge of technology and new concepts for construction. A lot of opportunity to learn these new concepts and other knowledge from experienced staff. Conp,any has a large office network and diverse background in different market segments.

Cons

Very poor at giving opportunities to younger and highly capable staff to become project managers or senior project managers. Turner looses their competitiveness in the market by having to much overhead and layers of management that is not needed. This has restricted the promotion of extremely talented staff and has given the competitive edge to other companies. Older staff can also lack the capacity to change or listen to new concepts.

    Pros

    Decent compensation. Some really bright people.

    Cons

    "Drink the kool-aid". If you were not raised through the Turner system, you are really never accepted. There are clearly two sets of rules. The ones for the Turner Boys and the rules for the rest of everyone else. They rule by being Big Bullies...... They're style gets real old real quick.
    Woman, are merely tokens and quotas. Usually promoted to meet metrics. It is an exhausting place to be......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace yourself.

    Pros

    Will give you as much responsibility as you can handle.
    Great learning curve
    Mostly good managers

    Cons

    Long hours
    You can be very easily thrust in over your head
    You have to be your own advocate and boast yourself to be noticed
    SPD comes with minimal supervision and sometimes support from the home office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Short projects (SPD) can easily burn out an employee very fast and turn an opinion of a company sour if the effort is not recognized or rewarded.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
