I worked at Turner Construction

Pros

-Independence and little day to day supervision
-Direct contact with company executives
-Work daily with project managers and project executives
-good salary for experience and among peers

Cons

-time lost traveling to department meetings at corporate office.
-division between construction departments and finance almost like two differnt companies at times
-not matched with projects that are closer to where you live and easier to get to
-little incentive to have the project done faster because bonus is set and not based on productivity

Advice to ManagementAdvice

conference calls for department meetings.
Allow requests to work on specific projects. A happy employee is a better employee. Allow younger employees to be promoted when positions open up and replace the lower positions. This will allow new employees to be trained properly limit mistakes and allow you to mold the employees into the type of worker you want.

    I have been working at Turner Construction

    Pros

    The company has a long history of success in the region which ultimately provides employees with an opportunity to work on some of the most prestigious projects within this market. Senior management is people focused.

    Cons

    There is very limited potential for career growth past middle management. The company is essentially managed by two individuals and will likely remain that way for the foreseeable future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should put more focus into adding structure into the company that will allow senior personnel an opportunity to grow.

    I worked at Turner Construction

    Pros

    Decent people, although not at all a young fun atmosphere. Plenty of free lunches after meetings.

    Cons

    Boring. Had zero interest in my job, not to mention the entire construction industry. it was an entry level position and my 2nd out of college. The senior level management was a bunch of stuffy old men, who pretty much ignored the subordinates. I felt that the company was badly in needed of modernization and advancements, technologically speaking. A lot of areas seemed very wasteful tp me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't ignore the people that work under you. A company is nothing without its people. Find ways to innovate to bring the company into the future.
