      Pros

      Turner's name, training and resources, yearly reviews and career future assessments, ability to relocate to other BUs throughout the world.

      Cons

      Your early career success is greatly dependent on who is advocating for you opposed to the individual productivity. This is the South, if you are not apart of the majority EXPECT to put your corporate self forward. Diversity is preached; however, intentional development of diverse staff for highly sought positions are far and few between. Sink or swim mentality for younger staff.

      Pros

      Amazing people, and for a big company, you feel like you are a part of a smaller company.

      Cons

      Unorganized at times with processes. It’s construction, so they will put a lot on your plate even if you have very little experience.

      Pros

      Great company culture; benefits are the best in the construction industry

      Cons

      Overwhelming amount of work, when work has to be complete you cannot leave until the work is done; the company is geared towards engineers, meaning that there is not much movement/advancement for marketing.

      Worst experience of my life

      May 5, 2021 - Assistant Superintendent 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      None that outweigh the cons

      Cons

      A terrible company with terrible people and management. I faced non-stop harassment and discrimination. Below average pay with long hours, nights and weekends. They had engineers performing janitorial duties around the job site as their primary tasks. Lying and gaslighting was happening all the time. The worst company I have ever worked for, by a long shot. I don’t recommend anyone accept an offer here.
