    I worked at Turner Construction

    Pros

    Good Company as stated by ENR.

    Cons

    The HR does not have the very basic professional decency to tell their interviewed candidates about their results. It took me 3 months to get an answer about my interview and by then I was zoo tired that I had to beg them to actually reject me and put a closure to all this.
    No coordination between the HR and the Hiring Management Team as they interview international candidates and then tell them that they do not hire people who need sponsorship. The point is international students with 29 months of work visa have the right to work here in USA. But they would prefer local candidates which to me seems like give them the guarantee that they will devote their life to the company. Where as international candidates are even willing to sign a contract that they will stick with that company for a min. of 29 months. I just don't get their view point and I am open to discussion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't claim EEO. and Tell your HR team to be a little well versed with the hiring policies for international students.

    Pros

    Happy to spend entire career with, Strong family oriented culture, vast opportunity for individual growth and advancement

    Cons

    Same challenges and demands of any company within the construction industry- demanding responsibilities but I wouldn't have any other way. When you work in a high performing best in class company, you always want to do more. Much of that pressure is self-induced, managers expect you to manage your workload appropriately.

    I have been working at Turner Construction full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Turner has great pay and very good benefits. It is a Company that takes care of their employees. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else.

    Cons

    You will work long hours. There is a lot of mandatory training which is not all bad but does take a lot of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Turner Construction

    Pros

    - Cool projects
    - Well respected contractor
    - Solid pay
    - Improved intern and employee development programs

    Cons

    - Slow to adapt new technology
    - Distinct roles draw lines between employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help improve the company culture so that younger employees aren't stifled from taking initiative and bringing new ideas. Construction is a growing and changing field; to remain on top, Turner must continue to innovate.

    I have been working at Turner Construction as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, and employees. Daily duties are always changing. Interns are treated like first year hires (similar responsibilities).

    Cons

    Salary employees work long hours and the pay breakdown ends up not being very much. May have to relocate for a project...never know where you will be in the next couple of years.

    Pros

    Great Company support, above average salary. Turner always likes to promote from within the company and is driven to provide the necessary training to encourage and help their employees grow and succeed.

    Cons

    Long hours, high stress. Depending on the projects that you are on, the hours of work per day and stress can be very high. Working weekends comes into play a lot.
