    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Fluor offers a flexible schedule which allows for better work/life balance, training options, mentoring circles, encourages volunteer opportunities, and multiple professional organizations to join.

    Cons

    The benefits at Fluor are the absolute minimum they are required to offer. They do not take care of their employees the way many of their competitors do. Additionally, the "boys club" mentality of many of their employees goes unchallenged.

    Advice to Management

    Offering plans with co-pay options, maternity leave, and paid holidays not using our time off with pay would all be beneficial to employee retention.

    Pros

    Good people, good management ethics, compensation package is among or better than industry standard

    Cons

    Did not get much new work experience always rather routine assignments at least for some people. People with 2 to 7 years of experience had more advantages as far as work experience and the salary.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Great company philosophy, all in all. Would recommend this place to work for any of my friends.
