    I have been working at Whiting-Turner full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company does take the time to appreciate the employees. This is the most relaxed job I've had. It still feels unreal after 8 months. Benefits and pay are good as well.

    Cons

    I wish the dental/vision was better but no cons really at the moment

    Great management minds ( Some of the best in the industry)
    Best health care iv ever had

    Advice to Management

    The company culture needs to better encourage diversity and acceptance, amongst all individuals in the company including senior management.

    I have been working at Whiting-Turner (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great experience working here. The higher level employees were respectful and wanted to help the interns learn. There were planned fun activities for us and other employees. The housing stipend was awesome. I decided not to work for them because I didn't want to be on the project management side but I recommend it to anyone who does. I think that anyone who starts full time and works hard, will be able to move up in the company quickly.

    Cons

    Didn't get to create relationships with other interns (other than on the few planned events) because I was the only intern assigned to my project.

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

    Pros

    -The pay is pretty good for an entry level job
    -Benefits are solid
    -Job stability
    -Career progression is clear
    -Never a dull moment - subjected to a lot of responsibility from the start
    -Operating groups make a large company feel smaller
    -Friendly coworkers

    Cons

    -Long hours and lots of weekend work
    -Mentorship is not as good as advertised
    -Time off and vacation time is lackluster
    -Work/life balance is lacking
    -Requires a certain personality - have to be okay with confrontation and getting into nasty arguments

    Advice to Management

    -Upper management constantly seems to preach self care, but it seems like a hollow message if they're going to expect you to work around the clock 365 days a year.
    -Lack of HR Department makes it difficult to confront potential workplace issues - issues have to be brought up directly with project executives or VPs.
