I have been working at Turner Construction

Pros

Good pay & benefits, Work/Life Balance is good if your manager believes in it

Cons

Old Boys Club, "Career Development" is a bunch of BS - you only get the good assignments if you are liked which is seemingly unrelated to your talent and ability.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do a better job at communication to the staff. Give more praise where it is due.

    I have been working at Turner Construction

    Pros

    Good benefits, opportunity to move within different departments, positive company reputation

    Cons

    Too much internal "PR"; information isn't freely shared with the company. Bulk of promotions and pay increases awarded to the "chosen few" rather than being truly merit-based.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make communications more open; don't rely on information to "trickle down" from the top!

    I worked at Turner Construction

    Pros

    Decent people, although not at all a young fun atmosphere. Plenty of free lunches after meetings.

    Cons

    Boring. Had zero interest in my job, not to mention the entire construction industry. it was an entry level position and my 2nd out of college. The senior level management was a bunch of stuffy old men, who pretty much ignored the subordinates. I felt that the company was badly in needed of modernization and advancements, technologically speaking. A lot of areas seemed very wasteful tp me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't ignore the people that work under you. A company is nothing without its people. Find ways to innovate to bring the company into the future.
