    The environment and people seem positive, but ultimately unrewarding in terms of career development and salary.

    I have been working at Fluor

    Pros

    People are great
    Downtown Vancouver office is great
    Benefits are good

    Cons

    Office does not give the impression it cares about employees or their career development
    Salaries are not determined fairly and are on the low end of the scale
    Not properly recognizing employees that are contributing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not always lowballing on salary or other things, such as office equipment, training, etc. - overall, it is beneficial to invest money in employees.

    Pros

    9/80 Schedule, Good Benefits, Flex Schedule.

    Cons

    Good old boys club. If you're a minority, and a woman in this company. Good luck to you. I was constantly harassed and my management didn't do anything about it and neither did HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to train and be a team player and HUMAN.

    I worked at Fluor as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Located in California. The work environment is pleasant and clean. People are nice and friendly. I met the nicest people there.

    Cons

    Traditionalist old company, absolute resistance to changes. Very difficult IT environment to work. I met some of the most obnoxious, rude, and ill-suited IT managers that I have ever worked with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company needs a new attitude make over.

    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

    Pros

    Big projects. Nothing else but i must have twenty words here for acceptance.

    Cons

    Low salary. Low responsibility. No appreciation for people with strong experience AND strong educations. Intellect means nothing here. People in senior positions without basic understanding of finance, economic, and believe it or not, engineering. Sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire educated people AND keep them!

    I worked at Fluor full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary is good.I think that's it. Benefits are poor. 9 day fortnight is supposed to make your work/life balance perfect... But Managers expect you to work off Fridays.

    Cons

    Procedures driven. Managers are largely absent, but expectation that you will give your life to the company. Expected to arrive before 7am, and not leave until gone 7pm. Only expected to put 40 hours on timecard. All staff deemed Lazy and incompetent unless you are a manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage. Talk to staff... Listen.

    I have been working at Fluor as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good vacation time, and pay was on time.

    Cons

    Micro management was one of the biggest issues. The housing was terrible. You would be packed in a dirty filthy tent with many individuals. Your job was always threatened for policy violations it was border line harassment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management at Bagram was terrible. If you don't treat the worker well you will lose the contract anyway.
