    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 worked at Fluor full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fluor is a great place to work. Wonderful benefits and great people. I highly recommend working here. Global Construction company with good job security. Sound leaders.

    Cons

    My particular reason for leaving the company was lack of a challenge in my position and office "politics "after my promotion. (A common occurence, I hear from some women...why? Jealousy.) I also was offered a better offer in the same field with another company for a $12 thousand increase in salary! Make sure you investigate job market prior to settling on wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When innovating a position and placing an employee in a management role, insure they are qualified to manage and properly guide the employee in their new position. Also as a member of upper management, your responsibility is to have an honest overview of what is actually happening in your absence. One csnnot simply rely upon "perceptions".

    I worked at Fluor

    Pros

    during y time there I worked under a specific project project and management team and i thoroughly enjoyed it. It was more that work and coworkers it was a family.

    Cons

    Projects come to an end, managers move on new ones come in and do not necessarily embrace the company culture the same ways. It is unfortunate for the long time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees, utilize the HR practices in place to assist you with retention.

    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.

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

    Pros

    The management is very supportive. They gave me opportunities to further develop my skills through trusting me manage a global project in spite of my very limited background to it. I had ups and downs along the way but they have my back for support. It was the more they encourage me to do better.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity if you want to move to another position or career track within the organization.
