    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of amazing people to work with, always new projects to work on with very little down time.

    Cons

    Upward mobility based on years of employment as opposed to merit, management is not in touch with younger staff, experience is largely depending on whose team you are on

    Advice to Management

    Younger staff does not see the value is sacrificing their desires for that of the greater good. We will move onto different roles. Listen to the staff and make the moves. There is always someone else to fill the position left behind.

    Pros

    As an intern there isn't a day where I'm not learning something new. Construction is a field that is constantly changing and dynamic, so there is never room to get too comfortable. The people you work with come from all walks of life, but work so well together. They ensure that all your questions are answered and that you get the most from the internship experience.

    Cons

    Long hours, but it depends on the stage of the project. Too many meetings at times

    Pros

    Good place to work. Good atmosphere. Everyday is a new challenge, which is very enjoyable and allows me to use my skill.

    Cons

    No insurance is probably the worst thing about this job. Also the inconsistency with weather picks and chooses my days I work.

    Advice to Management

    Not really much advice I can give on the cons. Possibly get insurance soon and/ or save enough inside work to balance out rainy days.

    Pros

    Career growth opportunities, tuition reimbursement, health benefits, cultural, age & gender diversity , career training, "sky's the limit" depending on your ability to keep up. Really smart and innovative people, educated, fast pace, 5 years at Turner equates to 10 years of construction industry experience.

    Cons

    Not enough vacation, 3 wks after 5yrs w/Company, 4wks after 15yrs. Long work day, normal work day 6:30am to 5:30pm. Weekend work required, Promotion's are far and few, raise percentages not enough for the hours worked. Equates to emotional & physical draining, really hard to get rid of dead weight personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Give supervisors the authority/opportunity to approve salary raises, institute compensations days for weekend work.

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

    Pros

    Good Company - Great Benefits - People in the field are hardworking and motivated - HR Team is great - Salary is fair - Quick response on IT issues

    Cons

    Long Hours required in the field - Middle Management needs more training - high turnover - Not enough Interns or Labor hired at project sites

    Advice to Management

    Think more about the people in the field working instead of what time management will go hunting golfing or any other outdoor activity.
