    The company is large enough to have good benefits but not so large that no one knows each other.

    The industry is cyclical. Working in the New York City branch is more stable though.

    I have been working at Turner Construction full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The support of leadership is incredible, you become very good friends with everyone in your job trailer, you learn an incredible amount of information regarding Construction engineering, as a lvl 1 field engineer they don’t let you work more than 40 hrs/week, incredible learning resources available to you.

    Compared to other jobs my friends got out of college, this one is by far the best in terms of work life balance as well as work environment.

    Cons

    Slightly below average pay for the industry, but at 40hrs/week max as a lvl 1 it’s worth it.

    Can give you less than 1 week notice when your assignment changes, which could anywhere within a 2hr drive of your current residence, which makes renting a places in the city v. Out of the city a tough choice.

    Advice to Management

    Up the starting salary for lvl 1 field engineers if you’d like to be more competitive in the initial hiring process.

    Give 3-4 weeks heads up when your assignment changes so that you can have time to find a new place closer to the new assignment.

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

    Pros

    Good people for the most part. Good benefits including retirement. Time off is good for younger staff. You will learn a ton in the first few years.

    Cons

    Middle management is not held accountable. Lots of broken promises from senior management. Sink or swim mentality. Top heavy project sites leaves lots of work for lower level staff.

    Advice to Management

    Actually do what you say you will for employees. Respect your lower tiered staff and hold middle management accountable.
