    I have been working at Turner Construction full-time

    Pros

    Depends on your business unit, the Chicago one unfortunately has a poor culture.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency, lack of opportunity despite ambition, poor work life balance, upper management is oblivious to their lack of influence in the industry and poor reputation which is sad

    Advice to Management

    Lose the "top down" mentality, it doesn't matter how long you've been with the company, you hire smart people to work with you as a team, not give them menial tasks to do, lose the gossip (it's not becoming),
