    Pros

    All the benefits to be expected with a Fortune 100 MNC around over 100 years: benefits, lateral moves, ability to shine in a niche

    Cons

    Too easy to be treated like a contractor, conflict of cultures between American headquarters and overseas post, lack of corporate oversight throughout roles and teams, no accountability for poor management and performance practices, too easy to specialize and loss ability for career placement due to over specialization (or when economy changes, you're culled from Fluor)

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more career rotations to build rapport throughout organization, reduce conflicts of interest and improve career potentials, establish and follow multiple performance review system, encourage anonymous whistleblower program

    Pros

    Generally good large greenfield projects. Plenty of opportunity for site exposure if desired. Friendly working environment.

    Cons

    Silo mentality. Lack of project continuation, seem to have trouble winning new work. Very quick to lay off contractors and staff at first sign of a trouble. Seem to only target tier 1 and 2 clients. Huge move to transfer work to cheaper cost centres - Manila, New Delhi etc. Only way to progress seems to be to move overseas with them at much reduced salary.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more clearly with workers. More focus on localisation. Business Development should consider targeting a range of clients, not just tier 1 and 2 clients.

    Pros

    Highly organized and fair and mixed culture. There are opportunities to advance if you strive for.

    Cons

    Some competitions of course. You need to prepare yourself not to be outdated. (This is good thing though). Sometimes it can be stressful to meet deadlines because there are projects you are working.

    Pros

    The people are all good and friendly.
    They will bend over backwards to help you.
    Overall, every one work as a team to get the job done.

    Cons

    You do not get the proper technical training
    that you need to do your job.
    A lot is left on the individual to self-teach them self.
    There is no bonuses what so ever if you complete a project on time
    and under budget.

    Advice to Management

    Management has to make an attempt to create an onsite or offsite training program
    for their technical staff.
    They also have to create a small bonus program for the Mechanic to the Engineer.

    Pros

    Freedom to perform the job up to a certain point.

    Cons

    Lack of information and direction from management. Left to find out the job description on your own. Lack of support from management. Forced to constantly ask for contract requirements from management due to unclear guidelines.

    Advice to Management

    Be more specific and more supportive with job descriptions and guidelines. Management seems to be strictly reactive not proactive.
