    I worked at Fluor full-time

    Pros

    Big company building large projects.

    Cons

    Not much learning opportunities for fresh engineers.

    Advice to Management

    The Amsterdam office should definitely try harder to involve young engineers in challenging tasks, instead of wasting their knowledge and passion with preparing simple documents.

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

    Pros

    Fluor is a world wide corporation and has a vast knowledge base to work from .... it is great for employees to be able to avail of that . .

    Cons

    The truth about Fluor and many other organizations is that they loose the ability to be able to connect with frontline staff that actually have Client interaction - this is vital for good working relationships so tha both parties get what they need from each other ..

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employees rather than procedures... procedures are not apply to reality at times. .. practicality is needed

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Fluor full-time for 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 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

    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 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.
