    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

    Pros

    Fluor has business world wide, including logcap project in the Middle East that enables its employees to get multi skilled which is a great benefit for each one of us that worked there.

    Cons

    Fluor has taken some of the toughest global challenges and there is a great open umbrella of jobs that each employee can reach if professional knowledge and skills shown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More ex Fluor employees should be given a chance for rehire.

    I worked at Fluor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company pays good, bosses are very cool and cooperative, company's operational set up requirements are very nice and clean i.e wonderful environment to work in with.

    Cons

    Hard work required some times in shifts that disturbs life set up, but over all its a good progressive company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should try to keep an eye on every individual.
    If the company is operating in multi cultural country or environment kindly heir a balanced work force , do not increase a particular number of nationality in work force because it becomes the reason for politics in company and departments as well as personal growth stops due to being left alone.

    I worked at Fluor as a contractor

    Pros

    Available training within company. Promotions possible. Travel available. Adequate and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Cliques can be roadblocks to personal growth and promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider yourself team members instead of disciplinarians and authoritarians. Upper management should be more aware of project managers' leadership styles on jobsites and do away with cliques, holier than thou attitudes, and tough guy mentalities. Fostering a team is much more valuable and fruitful than whipping the underlings. Fear of being judged harshly and reprimanded unjustly does not produce contented and dedicated employees. It was always very disappointing to witness a jobsite run according to these principles. With this being said, I must add that there are some very good managers with excellent skills, values and work ethics within the Fluor organization.

    I have been working at Fluor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Travel and money if you produce (or kiss butt of non producing old dogs).

    Cons

    Too much dead wood from CEO to all offices living off 35 years at company despite the fact they can't open PowerPoint.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire CEO and 80% of the old dogs. You've lost too Uchenna young talent due to your arrogance and entitlement views the past 3 years.

    I worked at Fluor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    One of the better formalized training programs for project managers, engineers, and designers
    Pay is competitive.
    Very professional work environment.
    Good people in all departments.

    Cons

    Can be "cliqueish" with respect to college you attended (Clemson in Greenville and Texas A&M in Sugar Land) also in Power you need to have a Duke/Fluor Daniel pedigree in the past.
    Fluor does not keep much of a bench when work is slack so you need to be time chargeable.
    If you are prepared to travel you can keep a job.
    Pay is different between offices for the same job.
