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

    Turner can be a wonderful place to work overall.

    Turner has a stated well-defined culture based on the most honorable values and they employ systems based on the most sound construction management and business principles.

    Turner University provides tremendous opportunity for self improvement and a readily available guide to learn their systems.

    Financially successful management will be rewarded.

    Projects are among the most exciting and interesting ones being built.

    Salaries are generous and compensation is sometimes made for extra levels of output that are requested of an employee.

    Turner has within its ranks some of the finest and most talented people.

    Cons

    Although Turner exhibits ethical values overall, self serving paths are sometimes chosen over paths that are consistent with stated core values.

    Regional management sometimes heeds official requirements in appearance only.

    Performance reviews can be highly manipulated and more non-confrontational than to-the-point.

    Turner is not immune to common large company problems such as tolerated nonproductive personnel and bad eggs unknown to upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to improve this great organization, investigate projects that do not go well. Investigate them at all levels with personnel not tied to the region performing the project and learn from what actually allowed undesireable outcomes.
