Engineer Fluor Australia

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Fluor full-time

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
