    Former Employee - Project Manager in Perth, Western Australia

    I worked at Fluor full-time (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    I have been working at Fluor full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Fluor full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working at Fluor is the best place to learn and grow to your full potential. The training opportunities are abundant and the ability to move up is available to the employee. If you work hard and have a good attitude good things will happen for you. Great benefits and work life balance. The company is consistently reinventing itself to remain competitive and gain market share. Strongest core values you will find in any industry.

    Cons

    Occasionally the business can be impacted by the cycles in the economy but if you are a good employee they will keep you. Especially if you are willing to travel to stay employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to make us a household name again. I don't like it when I tell people where I work and they have never heard of us.

    Pros

    Fluor provides exceptional training, cross-functional experience, diverse client portfolio, top class technical teams. Many Fluor employees have celebrated over 30 years of service to the company.

    Cons

    Fluor is a large organization, one of the largest EPCM companies in the world. With this, it is not as agile as some smaller competitors, and innovation and change can be harder to achieve.
