    Pros

    Understanding general contracting and relationship-building with subcontractors. Allows for opportunities above and beyond responsibilities. Lots of opportunities for internal training

    Cons

    Horizontal structure and not a lot of room for career growth; leadership is not always transparent in where they want to improve as a business

    Advice to Management

    Keep offering company training and be more transparent on a regular basis on where the company is headed.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    -Great working environment
    -Knowledgeable employees always willing to help especially a young professional
    -Truly listen to what the student desires to learn and if they continue to work with Turner will put them in a position suited to their learning goals
    -They will push you to learn more and test your limits but never so much that you feel overwhelmed

    Cons

    I wasn't hired by Turner sooner!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work Turner Team!

    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 Management

    Keep up the good work.

    - 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 Management

    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.
