I have been working at Turner Construction full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Will give you as much responsibility as you can handle.
Great learning curve
Mostly good managers

Cons

Long hours
You can be very easily thrust in over your head
You have to be your own advocate and boast yourself to be noticed
SPD comes with minimal supervision and sometimes support from the home office

Advice to Management

Short projects (SPD) can easily burn out an employee very fast and turn an opinion of a company sour if the effort is not recognized or rewarded.
