Boring place to work, stuck in old ways and mindset

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Sugar Land, TX (US)

I have been working at Fluor full-time for more than 8 years

ProsLarge company, strong emphasis on procedures and practices, if you are in the right network, it can be very lucrative.

ConsExtremely old school, run by people who grew up in 1950's and still think computers are the root cause of many inefficiencies.
One example is that they still block you from accessing gmail from work. Which is in fact counter productive. Coz almost everyone now has smart phones so people use their mobile devices to surf, which actually takes longer, so if the management was smarter then would actually modify the IT policies.
Also, there is no importance on real tech advancement, they tried developing an inhouse social network, to keep people engaged, but the systems are so antiquated that everything runs at a glacial pace.
Fluor was one of the biggest companies lobbying to Microsoft to keep XP alive, even after Microsoft stopped support.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to make relevant changes, just getting an inhouse social network doesnt make Fluor cool, you need to change at a much deeper level.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

do not practice what they preach

Design Engineer (Former Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I worked at Fluor full-time for more than a year

ProsThe company does a good job but overall spends way to much money

ConsHouston office is the worst, too many clicks at work , I mean it. if you are not part of it, better to just leave, have to butter up the bosses to succeed, many consider that normal these days. office conditions worst ever. lined up like phone operators with no privacy. stupid idea to save money, when they waste so much on other things

Advice to Senior Managementact like managers, do something besides just get along.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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.

Career opportunities

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I worked at Fluor full-time for more than 10 years

ProsFluor is a very big company but there are opportunities to make a career at Fluor for one willing to put in the extra effort. Good training, varied projects and assignments. Oversees assignments also available if you let it known you are interested. Benefits are good - especially the TOWP (time off with pay). Generous TOWP and you get to keep it and roll over each year whatever is not used.

ConsNegatives are also a result of being big. You must network with lots of people and get to know the management. Volunteer for assignments, charity events, etc. Opportunities sometimes require one being in the right place at the right time.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time on mid level employees who have 10-20 years at Fluor. They still have plenty of time to contribute and know more about managing than the 5-10 year young employees who are being shoved through to management positions before they are ready.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
