    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 worked at Fluor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and you are in charge of your career growth.

    Cons

    Behind in technology, resistance to change by long-time employees causes Fluor to remain behind, many managers are "old school" and require face time in the office (don't embrace working remotely) even though there is a policy on telecommuting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update technology, force change in the middle management ranks to become more progressive.

    I have been working at Fluor full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They treat employees with respect and generally do not micro-manage you. If you are assigned to a project the pay scale is great.

    Cons

    If you are a local hire you don't get some wonderful perks like employees on job assignment do. Medical Benifits are very expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management needs to be more Pro Active instead of Re Active. Upper Management demands results and does not question how production results are obtained untill an incident occurs.
