    I worked at Fluor

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Fluor is a good company to work for regarding work/life balance, although not the greatest if you only care about money.

    I have been working at Fluor

    Pros

    The flex time is really helpful for balancing personal & work life. The benefits package is excellent - covering dental/medical/vision and other things once you satisfy the annual combine deductible. They give you an employee health spending account which fully covers the deductible and then some. Here we get paid overtime which can be cahsed out, or banked, which is really helpful.

    Cons

    The pay is only mid-range compared to some of the other companies in the industry. Could work for an oil & gas firm and make more money. Only so much responsibility that you can take on, even if you search for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is doing a good job of keeping employees abreast of recent developments.

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

    Pros

    Company pays good, bosses are very cool and cooperative, company's operational set up requirements are very nice and clean i.e wonderful environment to work in with.

    Cons

    Hard work required some times in shifts that disturbs life set up, but over all its a good progressive company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should try to keep an eye on every individual.
    If the company is operating in multi cultural country or environment kindly heir a balanced work force , do not increase a particular number of nationality in work force because it becomes the reason for politics in company and departments as well as personal growth stops due to being left alone.

    I worked at Fluor as a contractor

    Pros

    Available training within company. Promotions possible. Travel available. Adequate and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Cliques can be roadblocks to personal growth and promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider yourself team members instead of disciplinarians and authoritarians. Upper management should be more aware of project managers' leadership styles on jobsites and do away with cliques, holier than thou attitudes, and tough guy mentalities. Fostering a team is much more valuable and fruitful than whipping the underlings. Fear of being judged harshly and reprimanded unjustly does not produce contented and dedicated employees. It was always very disappointing to witness a jobsite run according to these principles. With this being said, I must add that there are some very good managers with excellent skills, values and work ethics within the Fluor organization.

    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 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    One of the better formalized training programs for project managers, engineers, and designers
    Pay is competitive.
    Very professional work environment.
    Good people in all departments.

    Cons

    Can be "cliqueish" with respect to college you attended (Clemson in Greenville and Texas A&M in Sugar Land) also in Power you need to have a Duke/Fluor Daniel pedigree in the past.
    Fluor does not keep much of a bench when work is slack so you need to be time chargeable.
    If you are prepared to travel you can keep a job.
    Pay is different between offices for the same job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
