Pros

The Turner name is well recognized and respected in the industry. Turner teaches the younger population a lot about the industry and gives them a good amount of responsibility early on.

Cons

Minimal consideration for advancement, minimal pay raises, Turner is extremely political, senior management is very old school and tend to yell instead of actually do their job and properly plan.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

See the Cons I listed above. I don't actually ever see Turner emerging from the dark ages as I've described above.

    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!

    Former Employee - Assistant Project Accountant in New York, NY

    Pros

    -Independence and little day to day supervision
    -Direct contact with company executives
    -Work daily with project managers and project executives
    -good salary for experience and among peers

    Cons

    -time lost traveling to department meetings at corporate office.
    -division between construction departments and finance almost like two differnt companies at times
    -not matched with projects that are closer to where you live and easier to get to
    -little incentive to have the project done faster because bonus is set and not based on productivity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    conference calls for department meetings.
    Allow requests to work on specific projects. A happy employee is a better employee. Allow younger employees to be promoted when positions open up and replace the lower positions. This will allow new employees to be trained properly limit mistakes and allow you to mold the employees into the type of worker you want.
