Contractor experience

Field Engineer (Former Employee)
Fort MacKay, AB

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

ProsTo list a few, I can name some of the pros as:

Good reputation, Strong management, Computerized administrative systems, work/ life balance, interesting project, good support, good compensation and benefits.

Overall, Fluor is a very good company.

ConsThe project scope was not well-defined to every one, and it evolved as the project started. The project manager could have played a better role.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Lots of Opportunities - But Old Fashioned

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Fluor full-time

ProsAs a younger employee, Fluor provides a fantastic opportunity to start career while earning a decent salary with many perks. There are many friendly and helpful people within the office who will graciously guide you and are happy to share their knowledge. It is very much a supportive team atmosphere. Due to the project based nature of the EPCM industry, it is possible to move to a different project and/or role every few years. More senior employees may have the opportunity to work on projects around the world. Some other cool perks: Every second Friday off, and quarterly gathering of all employees for food and drinks.

ConsTechnology wise, Fluor is quite outdated. Computers are typically running Windows XP, Office 2003, and Lotus Notes. Internal systems are also quite antique. This has a direct impact on employee productivity (especially the younger generation). The physical office environment can be quite depressive, especially due to bland decorations and poor lighting. Furniture is also dated and uncomfortable.

Advice to Senior ManagementTechnology upgrades are desperately needed as the outdated infrastructure is having a serious impact on productivity. This will become even more problematic with the continued push towards lump sum projects. Additionally, compensation should take into account performance instead of just years of experience.

Fluor is a great place to work

Design Engineer (Former Employee)
Vancouver, BC

I worked at Fluor full-time for more than 5 years

Pros-Excellent compensation and benefits
-Work/life balance is highly promoted
-Big client base with lots of projects = lots of work
-Lots of overtime opportunities if you want extra cash

Cons-Project-based work = lots of lay offs during economy downturns
-If hired as a contractor, it takes a lot of doing to become staff (depending on position)

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, but help contractors become staff so they stay loyal to Fluor.

Logcap experience was a beast of a challenge.

Construction Coordinator (Former Employee)
Kabul (Afghanistan)

I worked at Fluor full-time for more than 3 years

Pros84 hour workweek eliminated limitations on income. Basically, two years in one.
The majority gave 100% effort up to the minute they stepped on the plane for demobilization.

ConsDuration to accomplish a task resulted in perceived ignorance i.e. Install A/C unit in winter.
Extreme limitations on transferring to another Fluor project.
