    Pros

    This company has a good close family type atmosphere. I loved working here. If you love people, then you'll love working for Turner. At least that is what it seemed like with me being an intern.

    Cons

    For me being an intern the only bad thing was being stuck in the office most of the time.

    You wanted to go to work everyday. You felt like a family.

    Pros

    Very good atmosphere to work in. Everyone is friendly and willing to help you (open-door policy). Turner trains you well, and sets you up for success. It is well known that Turner produces excellence and trains their employees for success; therefore around the 5-year mark many Turner employees get poached by other construction companies.

    Cons

    Turner is a huge company, and it can be difficult trying to network with everyone despite their efforts to organize social events. Unfortunately, this is the case with many big name construction companies, so this didn't bother me too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I enjoyed my internship experience with Turner, but I would have liked management to show more of an effort to introduce/socialize with internship-level employees.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, everyone is friendly and always willing to help each other, great culture, awesome projects, cool experiences. Pride in the projects completed. Management is really on top of what they are doing, the president knows everyone and knows everything about the company and continues to improve the company.

    Cons

    Can't really think of any cons, I would say sometimes difficult to contact certain superts, but most respond quickly and friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing

    Pros

    A company that cares about you and your family, truly. Opportunities are created for you if you work hard. Great environment to work with flexibility as needed. If you get knocked down, they are there to help you up.

    Cons

    None that I can think of, you can always find something wrong with something a company does but the positive outweigh the negative it is not worth it for me even think about it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the big guy around as long as we can

    Worked to help me reach my goals

    Pros

    They have a ton of resources at your disposal. They work to get you to follow your career path. If you want to transfer or relocate they will help you.

    Cons

    They probably pay less than other commercial contractors. Work hours are all over the board and the older staff expects you to work 6 days a week.
