EmployeeWorked at Turner Construction Company Inc. in New York City, NY at the time of review.

What I like

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

What I dislike

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

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.

Company Culture

Team is very close knit and feels like family

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

Former EmployeeWorked at Turner Construction in Boston, MA.

What I like

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

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

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

EmployeeWorked at Turner Construction Company in Banksville, NY at the time of review.

What I like

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

What I dislike

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

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

Company Culture

Very welcoming and easy going environment

EmployeeWorked at Turner Construction Company Inc. in New York City, NY at the time of review.

What I like

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

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.

Suggestions for improvement

Increased work life balance and assistance with childcare.

EmployeeWorked at Turner Construction Company in Houston, TX at the time of review.

What I like

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

What I dislike

The most enjoyable part of a work day is the educational opportunities available online and around the infrastructure of the organization

Suggestions for improvement

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.

EmployeeWorked at Turner Construction Company Inc. in New York City, NY at the time of review.

What I like

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

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.

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
