    Pros

    Great experience. Turner utilizes the newest CM methods and technology.

    Cons

    Long work hours and travel but that's just the construction industry in general.

    Advice to Management

    Create SOP's (standard operating procedures) to make it easier for people to bounce around projects.

  2. Solid group of honest hardworking professionals

    Pros

    Turner has completed many impressive projects across the nation and the globe. This experience opens up a lot of opportunities for the company and the company spends a lot of time training its employees and embracing new technology.

    Cons

    As a large company change comes slowly and even thought there is a focus on new technology it is hard to get buy in for major changes from corporate. Offices vary a lot, some are excellent and some just okay. Turner is not a private company and has a lot of back of house cost which makes it difficult to be cost competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Be more engaged in day to day employee activities and focusing on how to build well and less focused on the data and less focused on just metrics, industry and performance data. Overall focus more on b people and less on data and acronyms.

  3. Great work environment, interesting projects, commitment to excellence

    Pros

    Decent salary for the entry level position.

    Cons

    Leadership wasn't always more knowledgeable than the manpower they were leading.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to focus on the employees...not the upper management.

    Pros

    Management philosophy, managers and co-workers, training, resources, benefits, culture

    Cons

    Processes can be slow and more complicated than they need to be, its a large company so although there are growth opportunities there are lots of people to grow into those oppertunities.

    Advice to Management

    Make processes easier for operations. Stream line processes and make departments accountable for their own responsibilities. (ie operations has too much work involved in accounting, let us focus on operations).

    Advice to Management

    None really
