    Great career opportunities and great peers / management

    Construction Engineer (Current Employee) Calgary, AB

    ProsHaving 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.

    ConsSalary 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 Senior ManagementFurther 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.

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

    Process Specialist I (Current Employee) Calgary, AB

    ProsLots of work and guidence from senior managers. A lot of opportunitys to learn and grow. They are always trying to stretch you and see what you can do.

    ConsVery big company, it can be hard to meet people, especially in other diciplines. Must always impress the clients.

    Excellent company to work for

    Document Control Specialist (Former Employee) Vancouver, BC

    ProsDecent pay, very approachable and friendly management team, decent level of transparency on most project-related info. Contractors enjoy full flexibility, minimal supervision.

    ConsProject-based work means very little stability in company, whether contract or perm. Fluctuating project deadlines and fractured start dates means even less reliability in terms of job stability.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide a more fluid transition from entering position to project completion, and allow for more lead time on contract termination. Most of this (cons included) is industry specific; less to do with the company itself, but it is what it is.

    If you enjoy the challenge of EPCM, Fluor is a great place to work.

    Design Engineer I - Control Systems (Current Employee) Vancouver, BC

    ProsSenior engineers are great mentors. Fluor procedures are outstanding.

    ConsThe only downside with Fluor is that compensation is based on number of years of experience, instead of performance. People doing an excellent job unfortunately gets paid the same as a guy who sleeps in meeting and does absolutely nothing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to pay closer attention to what the staffs are doing. Compensation should be based on performance. Guys who sleep in meeting and does absolutely nothing at work should not be getting 8% raise!

    Fluor is one of the best companies to work for.

    Senior Manager O&M (Current Employee) Point Comfort, TX (US)

    ProsThere is an incredible amount of freedom to work your specialty and contribute to teams that are focused on the customer's success.

    ConsThere are some sites where Fluor standards and values are not always conveyed effectively through local management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsolidate and franchise every aspect of the Fluor experience t every site and help the teams develop and succeed. Never leave a site team without the proper supervision and leadership.

    Working at Fluor was a great experience. I worked with smart people. There were no slackers.

    Senior Developer (Former Employee) Greenville, SC (US)

    ProsThe best thing about working with Fluor is stability. I worked there for 14 years as a CONTRACTOR!

    ConsThey used to have some perks available to contractors, but they quick that over 10 years ago.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring back some perks for the Contractors. I used to love going to the July 4th celebration. You no longer invite the contractors who are a huge part of the success of the company.
