    Great work ethic from everyone, a lot of employee appreciation, room for improvement and open door policy, ever changing and innovative

    A lot of hiccups with the shift to a new integrated system software, no efficient and practical procedures but constantly improving

    Try to focus more on productivity and small picture and not always the big picture so everyone benefits from efficient solutions

    Pros

    Superiors and co-workers have an open-door policy to help you in your learning and in any questions you may have on your expectations. All members of the company feel like a family, as they will always provide help so you won't fail. Excellent company events and lunches where company members can "let loose", and you would feel spoiled at times. All employees I've worked with were down to earth and interested in getting to know you on a personal level. Compensation was fair, and I consider the work experience to be amazing and practical in developing soft skills that are an asset for any career.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is maintaining a work-life balance. There is stress created externally sometimes by clients or subcontractors, but I have never felt stress from internally in the company such as from a superior or coworker. As it is a large company, you sometimes need to contact multiple people to complete a company form or task.

    Advice to Management

    Turner is comprised of many successful offices among the country. Teams should be encouraged to reach out to other offices who have experience in similar construction projects. Improve efforts to encourage a work-life balance. Some of the online database tools can be optimized to reduce the time required to process and archive reports.

    Great experiences and one of a kind project exposure.

    Cons

    Company is big and spread out. Going up the corporate ladder is challenging due to timing and old school management due to the nature of construction.

    Advice to Management

    Performance bonuses

    Pros

    I have been lucky enough to be on projects with awesome people that make me laugh and enjoy going to work. Work-life balance was nonexistent for my first 6 years but that was more my issue due to the fact I want to be on my projects to make sure things get done they way I like.

    Cons

    Not many perks due to the dreaded corporate ethics policy but that's where the industry has headed. that whole squeaky wheel saying is definitely true and it seems that while it matters that your ability determine your standing, your are more likely to be noticed if your direct manager is one of the in crowd.

    Advice to Management

    Less corporate PR-type speak please. Give it to us straight.

    Pros

    Get to learn from some of the best in the business and be part of some of the best and biggest projects in New York City.

    Cons

    Experience highly depends on Project Manager or direct supervisor. Speak up to be heard.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to have open and honest conversations about my compensation at least twice a year.
