    Largest builder in the US, heavy focus on developing staff, wide variety of opportunities to work on different projects and different aspects of the building process.

    Cons

    Long hours - usually expected to work a minimum of 50 hours a week, causing work-life balance to suffer. This causes many of younger employees to burn out and leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strong leadership is key, making employees feel valued is incredibly important for retention.

    Pros

    Turner is progressive and on the cutting edge of the industry. They invested heavily in education and employee development.

    Cons

    Their risk aversion can be a hinderance to being a team player and often supercedes being a good builder. Paperwork detracts from the project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in relationships with Owners, subcontractors, and vendors.

    I worked at Turner Construction full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had a great experience at this company. The pay is good and there are a lot of good people there. There were always plenty of opportunities to advance available. You may have needed to look for them, but they were there. All it took was initiative.

    Cons

    The hours could be long sometimes. This wasn't too much of a problem, because I think that's pretty much the same anywhere you go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
