    Cons

    - None that I can think of at the moment.

    Pros

    Turner is a great company to work for. You will be surrounded by some fantastic coworkers whether on a project or in the office. If you are new to the industry it is a great place to learn and develop your skills. The pay is great and the benefits are top class. Turner is one of the best in the industry and what they do.

    Cons

    There is not always a clear direction on roles and expectations. A lot of the work is trial by fire. It takes some time to get to know all the policies and procedures in place.

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear on roles and expectations. Take more time up front to get newer employees acclimated with the Turner Way.

    I worked at Turner Construction full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Career Development, Good Reputation

    Cons

    Misleading On-boarding Process, Poor Work Life Balance, Conservative Office Culture

    Advice to Management

    The misleading onboarding process is what contributed to a lot of my anger with this company. I was told that I was being hired as an Assistant Field Engineer, and that they would place me at a construction site within 30 min of my apartment. After a week of training, they told me they were placing me in estimating (even though I signed a contract for field work), which was located 1.5 hours from where I was living. Despite voicing my concern with this, they did not budge. Estimators are often expected to stay in the office for 10-11 hours each day.

    Talk with employees more prior to giving them assignments to see what they want before even considering relocating them to projects 70 miles away.
