    Pros

    Good work life balance but they make you work hard for every penny they pay. A lot of growth opportunities. Turner Constructions is really good. They have a lot of events to give employee a chance to know company better.

    Cons

    Very political environment. They only care for the colleagues who have spent much time in company and won't listen to the employees who are new in company. You have to obey senior engineers even they mistreat you otherwise you will jeopardize your job.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to listen to both employees in case of conflicts. Just because one employee has spent some years in company doesn't necessarily have to correct in that case. Sometimes new employees are also right.

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

    Pros

    -Work with extremely bright people
    -Compensation is solid

    Cons

    -Constantly pushes innovation and lean but hardly follow any of these practices. How lean is it to suggest in-person meetings that are 3-4 hours one way for an hour meeting.
    -Work-Life Balance is terrible
    -No casual attire. Why would you ever need a collared shirt on the field or the offices...
    -Performance review rarely ever accurate. An instance I experienced was when there was someone that had said one thing or another and manager didn't bother understanding the actual events.

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

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Career Development, Good Reputation

    Cons

    Misleading On-boarding Process, Poor Work Life Balance, Conservative Office Culture

    Advice to Management

    The misleading onboarding process is what contributed to a lot of my anger with this company. I was told that I was being hired as an Assistant Field Engineer, and that they would place me at a construction site within 30 min of my apartment. After a week of training, they told me they were placing me in estimating (even though I signed a contract for field work), which was located 1.5 hours from where I was living. Despite voicing my concern with this, they did not budge. Estimators are often expected to stay in the office for 10-11 hours each day.

    Pros

    The support of leadership is incredible, you become very good friends with everyone in your job trailer, you learn an incredible amount of information regarding Construction engineering, as a lvl 1 field engineer they don’t let you work more than 40 hrs/week, incredible learning resources available to you.

    Compared to other jobs my friends got out of college, this one is by far the best in terms of work life balance as well as work environment.

    Cons

    Slightly below average pay for the industry, but at 40hrs/week max as a lvl 1 it’s worth it.

    Can give you less than 1 week notice when your assignment changes, which could anywhere within a 2hr drive of your current residence, which makes renting a places in the city v. Out of the city a tough choice.

    Advice to Management

    Up the starting salary for lvl 1 field engineers if you’d like to be more competitive in the initial hiring process.

    Give 3-4 weeks heads up when your assignment changes so that you can have time to find a new place closer to the new assignment.
