    I worked at Turner Construction full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, better work/life balance than heavy civil or other large commercial contractors.

    Cons

    Traditional brute force culture is maintained as status quo and innovative thinking although talked about at some level, has not proliferated the whole company.

    I worked at Turner Construction

    Pros

    the best part of turner is getting to put TCCO on your resume when you leave

    Cons

    the worst part about turner are the long hours, somewhat incompetent upper managment and high job turnover, so once you get good and setteled at a job, they up and move you, or someone who you are working with! :(

    i would say that it is great for entry level for the experience but middle managment always gets better pay elsewhere
