    Pros

    WT does a great job at challenging you and giving you as much as you can handle. Management wants to see you learn and improve.

    Cons

    Very hard to find a place to live in Orlando for an internship, everywhere wants you to sign a year lease.

    I worked at Whiting-Turner full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company to start with Looks good on a resume Large scale and high profile projects Decent benefits

    Cons

    Long hours with frequent weekend work and overtime. No training you'll need to figure it out as you go and bosses will tell you that. The company is growing to fast and almost all project and operating groups are under staffed. Large work load with little help. Relocation is all but certain. You won't have a life outside work because the job consumes you. Don't be fooled by their golden carrots nearly all the good benefits are only attainable after working there 30 yrs +. In the meantime you'll be burning yourself out physically and mentally. If you don't have an absolute love for construction and don't mind the negatives aspect of the job don't work there. You won't be doing what you went to school for. If you're work as an office guy (pm or pe) you're pushing paper, putting lots of fires out, and your basically a lackey for your boss. If you work as a field guy (super or fe) your basically babysitting subs and trying to meet unrealistic scheduling targets.

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

    Pros

    Amazing Benefits. Decent Travel Policy. Job Security.

    Cons

    Not Much Vacation. Middle/Low Salary Range. Employee Engagement. "Figure It Out As You Go" Mentality. Lots of Office Politics. This all depends on which group you are hired into. My group had poor management and did not engage with their employees. Management training is not provided to help with career progression. Systems training is not provided to ensure documentation is being performed properly. All of my projects have been on a "figure it out as you go" mentality. You need to make friends with someone who knows what they are doing so you can learn from them.
