Company Culture

Team is very close knit and feels like family

Overall compensation for your work

My compensation could be better in accordance with median salary for position

Environmental Friendliness

Turner is green

Work-Life Balance

They say they promote work life balance but there are biases

Handicapped Accessibility

We do not have anyone working with disabilities so can't say

Challenging Work

my work load is more challenging than the actual work

Suggestions for improvement

  • More trust in the employees that are hired would make a world of difference. It would also be better if employees didn't feel like they had to be at work 10 hours a day to feel like they are valued.

What I like about the company

Its a great environment to work it. They mold you into their culture of "Building LIFE"

What I dislike about the company

There has been nepotism over the years. There are also "Golden children" which makes others feel inadequate.

There really was no ability to work from home.

The following perks were offered to me

Suggestions for improvement

  • Needs new leadership. Favoritism of family and friends over qualified workers needs to be dismissed. Respect to the employees needs to be implemented. We were all just a number to them waiting to be replaced

What I like about the company

My co-workers were great to work with, but management was not. After my injury men from the main office would try to intimidate me into quitting instead of filing workman's comp. I suffered a nervous breakdown after back surgery when Turner demanded i pay

What I dislike about the company

Lack of compassion and respect to their workers when an injury occurs especially when it is through the fault of others outside the company

Company Culture

Support from management

Very welcoming and easy going environment

Challenging Work

developing

Suggestions for improvement

  • The most enjoyable part of a work day is the educational opportunities available online and around the infrastructure of the organization. The most difficult part of the job is the double standard approach by management

What I like about the company

Performed regular job site observations to provide direction for all general contractor personnel.

What I dislike about the company

Profit driven organization only, no regard for family crisis encountered by employees, i.e. death in family

  • Increased work life balance and assistance with childcare.

What I like about the company

Will have the ability to work on multiple (varying) projects having a sense of give back especially if it’s a healthcare facility. Meet many people and also have the opportunity to travel to different project sites around the world to work.

What I dislike about the company

Need for diversity at the top and lack of work life balance for field staff. Everyone need to be seen as the same on an equal playing field.

  • There is really no one to see your talents or your knowledge to push advancement. There is no performance evaluation or places to go to seek advancement.

What I like about the company

Turner was full of people eager to help. The atmosphere was always fun and relaxed but also challenging enough to make you strive for perfection

Suggestions for improvement

  • I feel that the majority of the operators were lazy and didn't care or had a lack of experience in safety and their job. The shop foreman did not know how to issue work or keep us busy

What I like about the company

The days start early and can end late on a regular basis. Promotion criteria is not always clear. Reviews are given annually but not enough to help the employee understand where they stand and what they specifically need to do to advance.

What I dislike about the company

Turner is a great company but its Business Unit - South is not a good representation of the true values and direction that the corporate Turner wishes to incorporate.
