    Pros

    Worked on some great projects and got to see a lot of different things.

    Cons

    Sometimes you get caught in working on the same types of projects because you get in a trap where you become too good at what you do and so tend to stay in there

    Advice to Management

    move people around a little more often between different types of projects and groups

    Pros

    - When you become a Turner staff member, you are part of the Turner family. A truly amazing accomplishment for such a large company.
    - Opportunities for staff.
    - Management has prioritized developing staff.
    - Truly a GREAT company to work for.

    Cons

    - Internal inefficiencies due to "check and balance" processes.
    - Lots of departments.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on being great "builders". Consolidate departments to eliminate inefficiencies. The builder culture starts at the top.

    Pros

    Since I have moved to Texas, am looking for a strong and formidable contractor with high reputation. Turner is such a construction and PMCM company. It has many a projects to boast about.

    Cons

    If there are some downsides to working with Turner, i am not aware of that. I am a team player and would adjust to new atmosphere and working environment.

    Advice to Management

    My experience is to allow and encourage employees to keep updating technical abilities by completing required courses offered by some reputable organizations. Red Vector is ONE that I know of.

    Occasionally, dependent on project specific schedule, there can be very long work days, nights and even weekends.
