    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Ability to work on projects around the globe.

    Cons

    Need to be mobile to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance and a formal program for mobile employees outside of IT would help us to compete better when recruiting vs. our competition. Would also increase more women at Fluor.

    Pros

    Very good salary and the employees around the globe were a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    There was too much politics that was factored into career progression especially in mid to senior management. Too many unqualified individuals ended up in management positions. A lot of these managers didn't understand how to lead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business Line executive management needs to be flushed out and replaced with competent execs who care about their employees and the preserving the companies history and longevity rather than focusing on their own salaries and empires.

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

    Pros

    The salary and benefits were excellent.

    Cons

    The people were very much set in their own cliches. And it took time for people to work their ways into their decided circle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more attendtive to employees when they are struggling and begging for help.

    Current Employee - Construction Engineer in Calgary, AB (Canada)

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

    Pros

    Having the ability to move between offices and business units and also job function (provided you have the skills needed)
    Being an EPC, ability to work on different major projects allows one the opportunity to learn quickly and advance career.
    Majority of senior management listen to their employees and genuinely care for them and their career path.
    Lots of interactive events and education programs available.
    Incredible amount of experience and knowledge available within the organization and shared between the 40+ offices using a knowledge share forum.
    There is always a drive by management for improvement within the Construction business line.
    Ethics in the workplace is highly valued.
    Time off with pay is very flexible and taking vacation or flex time is never an issue.

    Cons

    Salary is not industry leading or on the high end of the spectrum for EPCs, but there are a lot of factors such as great work environment, experienced peers and management which increases job satisfaction - something that you can't put a price on.

    While majority of facilities provided are nice, workstations in some places could use updating and a better layout is needed in some places (i.e. more offices) Occasionally there are managers / leads / directors sitting in cubicles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Further invest not only in talent development, but also developing the company's ability to diverge into new markets and businesses. (via expanding overhead budget)
    Bonus structure should be implemented on a broader scale in order to stay competitive and attract talent - even if bonuses are minuscule to begin with.

    I worked at Fluor as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Compensation , vacation time. Employees work together as a team. Takes pride in safety.

    Cons

    Management was not trained and those that have been at the company for years have to train new management on what to do. Inventory of supplies was limited or not available at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within and not have employees with the potential to progress in the company train new hired upper management
