    I have been working at Turner Construction full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Amazing company Great opportunity to travel through the US and abroad to be on so many different projects. Christmas bonus every year is great. Pay and suitcase is average.

    Cons

    Travel and suitcase pay could be better for us traveling. Long hours and weekends with no compensation. Some parts of site management are part of the good ol boys club. Promotions are rare for us not in the “club”. Hard to transfer to another site. My project site was disconnected from home BU.
