Pay is good at least

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Very long work hours depending on which department you work in. But, they pay is very good. You will learn a lot about buisness of real estate, but if looking for something more technical, go elsewhere.

this was a complete waste of time and effort

It was like watching paint dry. The managers were sub human cardboard cut outs with no substance beyond jelly with performance as a jelly mould to suit.

Pros

no one notices that you're asleep

Cons

if they do notice you're asleep, they couldn't care less.

Badly managed in B'ham & EE

'A terrible experience all round. Bad bullying and blame culture. No structured training, complete lack of organisation ability from management. The senior members of the team run the office like their own little club, offering no support to staff or management of projects then putting staff under pressure when higher management get involved, blaming the staff for the project failures' ALL TRUE . No training in what you need, lots of training in what don't need. You're used as a cash generator, no benefits and salary are below market rate.

Pros

None

Cons

Senior management

Bad company to work for

Management is terrible. Their not U.S Citizens, they have work visas. They micro-manage you. You will do other people work. It's a joke to work here.

Pros

None

Cons

Young people that are bossy.

Turner & Townsend Taurus bad place to work.

Turner & Townsend Taurus is a toxic place to work, poor management and lack of professionalism. Executive team are like politicians, just lies and more lies.

Cons

Bad management, they don’t care about employees.

Great team

A large company, great resources to pull on with vastly experienced team members. Great opportunity for progression, with a genuine, pro-active approach to insuring a healthy work / home life balance.

Long hours and strict working environment

TT work on global flagship project and offer an opportunity to work on these. There's no doubt you will gain great exposure and attractive for young engineers. However, TT KSA is mainly for cost management who do not get paid well at all and is full of complaints. They have a high staff leaving turnover. In my experience this is due to people being overworked trying to get a promotion and being charged out as a senior management but only paid at a lower level. This is unfair when TT already take 15% OHP on their charge out rate but then also try make a huge saving by offering lower salaries. There is also no work life balance and your told off by the admin staff if you come in 5 mins late or leave 5 min early without informing them. People also leave due to no progression. Annual PDR is a time to help develop people but management seem to use as tick box exercise.

Pros

People are welcoming.

Cons

long hours, strict management, no work life balance, poor pay, no progression mentioned and is unclear

T&T Sells Professional Services. Employees are a commodity

British owned. Therefore here in the US citizens are a lesser value within the company culture. Opportunities for advancement are constantly designed to be provided to British or Irish employees.Depending on which client account an employee works upon then that is the culture of that team.They had a very contaminated VP destroying moral and treating employees poorly, and even loosing a client account. Top management was aware, but because he was British, did not act to resolve promptly.

Pros

They have work, and if on the right account can be good steady enjoyable work

Cons

Discriminatory against US workers

Contractor at Facebook

Overall Turner & Townsend is a very good company to work for and very concerned for their employees. My tenure was sort term due to Covid but had this not been the case I'm sure I would have continued to be an employee. Working as a contractor on the Facebook jobsite at times I felt out of touch with Turner but they always had things going on to include me in company events and trainings. They truly care about their employees.

Pros

Good salary and compensation; care for their employees; good support.

Cons

As a contractor feel out of touch with the company at times.

Graduate Development Programme

The Graduate Programme is well structured though salary is not competitive given the market rate for University-leavers in other global consultancies.

Pros

Positive people

Cons

Limited advancement

Was seconded. Cannot comment

Not much to say. Was seconded immediately. Cannot comment on culture as was not there. Company is risk advserse so whether yu are staff or contractor, you only have a place as long as you have a role. More of a recruitment consultancy

Pros

Cons

Project margin considered first

Relaxed, fun, collaborative

While working on tasks, i was able to pluck ideas from other people and add them to my own vice versa. This allowed my ideas to be incredibly improved by the end of the first week. There is a level of competition in the firm which is nice whilst still keeping quite a relaxed but fast paced atmosphere which is perfect to work in.

Genuine Concern for Employees to feel Included

Working in Bakersfield, CA with my home office in Houston, TX created a very remote atmosphere as I am the only employee in Bakersfield, CA working for our client, Chevron. The Company made every effort to make me feel part of the team even though I was alone and so far from the rest of the team.

Workplace Culture

T&T was overall a good place to work. I felt support from Management & Team members while working on various projects. When help is needed you can reach out to others for assistance.
