    Pros

    Good remuneration package with reasonable benefits. You are allowed to work independently and you are allowed to be creative to some extend. Excellent international project opportunities providing you are part of the acceptable political regime

    Cons

    Senior Management discrimination against potential highly experienced and qualified staff. Inconsistent project travelling policy implementation results in low morale

    Advice to Management

    Follow your policies and treat your above average employees with respect.

  2. Disappointing.

    Pros

    Good work life balance and benefits with a fair salary.

    Cons

    Work is based on an hourly charge rate from clients.
    Lower engineers are seen not as opportunities for future advancement instead as heads that can charge client.
    Promise of education support was disingenuous, many were refused even basic training.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about what is offered and what the company is going through
    Dont go through a hiring craze in boom times

    Pros

    There are many pros - for men. Especially blue eyed blonde men over 6' tall. Ladies who are morally compromised and play dumb go far until they have children or hit 40.

    Cons

    When your boss looks at you and tells you you aren't being considered for a promotion because "men need a job more," and "you should be home raising your kids," you polish your resume and prepare for escape.

    Pros

    Ability to travel and network

    Cons

    It seems management is more concerned with frequent flyer miles and perks than they are with results.

    Advice to Management

    How much money did you spend this year to rent condos and attend the Masters? Why not use that money for employees instead of bar tabs and gold clubs.

    Pros

    Competitors seek talent from Fluor because they know how poorly they treat people, so there is life after Fluor.
    It's easy to shine since they are so behind the times.

    Cons

    A level of undeserved arrogance in so many long time employees who cover each others backs and cash checks with out delivering any value or results.
    Worst health insurance I've ever seen.
    Good talent is let go while the buddy system keeps the 30 year employees around even though they can't open a laptop without instructions.

    Advice to Management

    The Taj Mahal in Dallas has no clue. While traveling unnecessarily around the globe, take a few notes and make the right changes.

    Pros

    Excellent compensation, good benefits, at least you are paid to give your life to this place.

    Cons

    Lots of dead wood, good old boy system in full force. You can be a total IDIOT but if your parent, spouse or friend is in a Director, HR or PM position, then you have the Golden Ticket. It's no wonder the Greenville, SC campus is a ghost town; they have priced their own selves out of the market with all of the overhead and the "that's the way we've always done it" attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the arrogant attitude and the constant story of a "huge backlog" of work to your stockholders. And you expect your project workload to pickup in what century?

    Pros

    Great pay great vacation/R and R fun travel. Retention bonuses.

    Cons

    This company was rife with fraud and abuse in Afghanistan as a Department of Defense contractor and will be on the news CNN just like KBR was when they lost the LOGCAP contract in Afghanistan to Fluor. With Fluor they had policies and procedures that were never enforced unless the target was political or racially not in the click. As a result over 500 thousand gallons of jet fuel JP-8 is unaccounted for and there fore missing had policies and procedures be followed and evenly and fairly enforced no matter who you know or the color of your skin then that fuel would be accounted for. There as a huge race issue on LOGCAP Afghanistan under Fluor and it was African American committing racism against white Americans and Afghan local nationals..

    I could not watch this go on any longer I had been in Afghanistan and Iraq working for Fluor and KBR for over 8 years and under Fluor it was the worst I had ever witnessed I had to resign or go mad. They make KBR look soo good I would have been willing to go back to KBR for less money than Fluor paid us.

    When I resigned I reported what I witnessed to investigators for the company and I have communicated with people still there what was going on is still going on and was never even looked into. Keep your eyes on CNN this will be a story for sure. Fluor will get a bad name and is not a bad company but this every man for himself management is not effective when people are incompetent for the positions they hold and undisciplined and it is very difficult to get highly educated and competent personnel in a war zone they can make the same money or close to it at home so now the guy who was the grocery store cart boy and tells good jokes and knows all the wrong stuff gets the promotion and the blind lead the ones who may be more qualified and almost everyone is looking at face book and playing games on company time as opposed to double checking their work or learning and refreshing their skills.

    Fluor will get a bad name form this when the story breaks on CNN and they are not a bad company but been mismanaged and left to run wild in Afghanistan with unqualified and tested personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Apply and enforce policies evenly and fairly have a zero tolerance policy and enforce it no matter who the violators may be who they know or their ethnicity. Evenly balance the ethnicity/race of staff in every section to lesson the likeliness of collusion / buddy system that facilities wrong doing. Ensure via background checks and on site tests and past performance all together to be sure a candidate for promotion is qualified.
