    I worked at Turner Construction full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed most of the people I worked with; good benefits, comprehensive review process; family culture; interesting industry

    Cons

    Limited upward mobility for some career tracks; unprofessional "good old boy" mentality by many senior leaders; too many after hours events pressured to go to

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at who you position as leaders within the company and don't be afraid to let them go if they're constantly acting unprofessional and unethical. They're the face of the company and should be looked at as role models by junior staff.

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

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great. They provide many opportunities to rotate in different roles. Work/life balance is encouraged. Medical benefits are quite good compared to other local companies. Projects are varied and high profile.

    Cons

    Takes a long time to get promoted unless you have an advocate who will push for you. Also HR, a person who has never worked with you, seems to have more pull over who gets promoted. Pay range lags behind other companies. A lot of policies and procedures in place make you feel handcuffed to pushing paper instead of building.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that there are qualified people that can go to the next level and then when they are promoted provide the support to help them succeed.
