    Austin, TX Turner Division

    May 19, 2022 - Superintendent in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - #1 GC in the country with a lot of great, well-established offices. *You need to make sure the office you're applying with is established with a solid pipeline* - Solid PTO and vacation package - Good healthcare benefits package

    Cons

    - The Austin "division" continues to fail to get work in town to keep their people busy locally or to provide meaningful career growth. Excessive commuting to fringe areas where they can get work and/or traveling for projects in other parts of the country is expected. This is not disclosed when folks are hired here. - Toxic managers are tolerated and serious employee issues caused by them are swept under the rug frequently. The HR department specifically is there to protect the company and nothing else. - Underperforming managers/leaders are tolerated here creating a serious morale and overall division performance issue. - The feeling of being just a number is real here. Did not feel valued as a human being or that my career goals were given any consideration. - Superintendents are treated like 2nd class citizens to PMs at Turner. This is not typical at many advanced general contractors.

    Great Place to Work

    May 4, 2022 - Project Safety Manager in Omaha, NE
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Turner has been a very successful company in recent years and takes care of its employees. Pay is usually highly competitive and we do receive a bonus of one extra paycheck (Free) at the end of the year. I have worked with them for 5 years and have never really had any hard issues with the company.

    Cons

    The hiring practices and pay scales can be a bit skewed and can even be perceived as a bit corrupt. Some employees will be paid more for less work and vice versa. It really comes down to who your manager/supervisor is. Sometimes it does feel like Turner cares more about their bottom line than the success or progression of their employees. I know of one occasion where an employee was hired at a higher position with more pay than myself, yet I had more and better experience. Turner values older employees and will sometimes take advantage of younger employees, so it is very important to advocate for yourself within a role inside of Turner. That said, Turner is a very good place to work if you're willing to put in the effort of a long career.
