    Pros

    Flex Schedule. Good Benefits. Great people to work with for the most part.

    High Stress environment. Work with many people who are "workaholics" and expect you to be the same way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop work from home initiatives to draw young candidates.

    Former Employee - Employment Supervisor in Redwood Shores, CA (US)

    I worked at Fluor full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Fluor for 13 years; if you pay attention and work as a team player, it exceeds the other top EPC firms for which I worked in terms of learning curve on project execution, employee relations and employee/management loyalty. If you don't know how to work as a team player, our division quickly got rid of you through separation or transfer, and some of the personality with whom you work do not make "team work" easy.

    Cons

    Fluor pays near the top, but not at the top of major US EPC firms. Some of its technical experts are lifers who prefer to talk only with each other, sometimes at the expense of project operations. The Construction side out of Greenville and bean-counters in Sugar Land have sometimes had oversize influence on company performance and not in a good way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your rather talented HR staff; re-institute the Fluor Constructors HR folks onsite to ensure your employees are well cared for.

    I have been working at Fluor full-time

    Pros

    Successful company with true commitment to both ethics and safety.

    Cons

    Fluor is a project-based company. Jobs last only until the project ends - often after only a few months or a couple of years. If there is not another job available on a different project, employees are put on LOA without pay. This results in employees leaving the company for other firms or taking jobs in hardship areas to stay employed.

    I worked at Fluor

    Pros

    Fluor has business world wide, including logcap project in the Middle East that enables its employees to get multi skilled which is a great benefit for each one of us that worked there.

    Cons

    Fluor has taken some of the toughest global challenges and there is a great open umbrella of jobs that each employee can reach if professional knowledge and skills shown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More ex Fluor employees should be given a chance for rehire.
