    I have been working at Turner Construction full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great reputation in the construction industry. Turner also offers great compensation compared to their competition.

    Cons

    Turner is great if you are of the majority demographic, however, if you fall outside of that category then it will be hard for you to advance your career. Over the past 3-4 years the Atlanta office has had difficulty retaining talented female employees and employees of color because of the lack of career advancement for their demographic.

    Advice to Management

    Work on looking at all employees of all races and genders when considering promotions.

    Great opportunities if interested in construction..
    Good pay & benefits
    Good people!

    Hours depends on the project you are assigned to.

    Cons

    Hours can be long. Management does not encourage team work, they reward & recognize the most visual team member. Everybody can't be the boss at the same time, somebody has to do the inconspicuous work too for the project to move along.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage team work and recognize everybody is important to the team, including those performing non-visual roles on the project.
