    I have been working at Turner and Townsend full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Growing firm. Good opportunity to advance if you work hard. Lots of high profile clients. Can work anywhere you want globally. Very loyal to dedicated hard working employees.

    Cons

    Only company I have work for that doesn't offer performance bonuses. Work load and demands of local client can be exhausting at times

    Advice to Management

    Unique approach to BD. Limited interest in investing money into building relationships in the US market which is helpful in winning new projects.

    I have been working at Turner and Townsend full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    T&T works with a large variety of clients. They are good about trying to keep their employees even when a job ends, working on a contract project basis can be difficult thing to do because of timing and resources.

    Cons

    They dont use their resources very well and could benefit from better IT and cloud based technology since there are so many offices. I feel like a lot of work gets duplicated when another office has probably already created the same thing.

    Advice to Management

    The employee evaluation process takes too long and isnt beneficial for the employee in any way.
