    Pros

    Training and Experience. Turner opens all doors and allows you to fully engage yourself in all aspects of the company with ease.

    Cons

    Turner Construction engages itself in many time sensitive projects where additional hours are needed by all employees that can exceed the 40 hour typical work week..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turner has a tendency to train the best and then those individuals leave the company in search of more compensation for their efforts. Find a way to either compensate better or retain the employees past 5+ years.

    Pros

    If you ask for challenges they will look for ways to give it to you. Although you may not get all of the mentoring you want. Thus it is a great place learn. Great network of people. They have a good internal on demand training website.
    They do a good job of moving people around the departments in a effort to develop well rounded employees as they move up the corporate ladder in preparation for senior management.
    It is a large company where you can transfer to other offices, although it is not easy.
    Overall people are very professional and pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Corporate HR pushes work/life balance via emails and news letters, but it is not enforced. Since typically it is face time that determines good performance reviews and salary/promotion increases, the culture discourages working a 40 hour week. The inside joke is that your work and life can still balance at %90 and %10 respectively.
    Salaries are not competitive.
    They tend to be cheap about fringe items like Turner labeled promotional items.
