    I have been working at Turner and Townsend full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Varied projects with a number of regional clients bring about a diverse range of opportunities for staff

    Cons

    The culture within the PM team is extremely poor. There is a complete distrust with senior management and trust is almost non-existent. The Director of the team even said he is only in it for himself!

    Advice to Management

    The management team are immature and need some basic training in leadership, communications and behaviours
