    I worked at Fluor full-time (less than a 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 8 years)

    Pros

    Good salary - competitive benefits - encouraging of associates to become involved in the community - providing numerous opportunities for volunteering (Meals on Wheels, Hands on Greenville, Habitat for Humanity, United Way, etc.)

    Cons

    Because of the company's size, one tends to get "pigeon-holed" into a specific job duty, specifically for women. It can be challenging to get male supervisors to promote women into lead positions.

    Great way to be able to travel and had a great compensation package

    Be away from home for 3 to 4 months at a time and no time off worked 7 days a week and 12 hrs a days

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company had great core values and a great safety program. You could work a little more on helping your employees get a little more rest so as they could better do their missions.

    Pros

    Very pleasant colleagues, high qualified engineering company. The world's largest engineering procurement and construction company with international project experience, in infrastructure, oil, gas, and chemical.
