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

    Pros

    Good salary - competitive benefits - encouraging of associates to become involved in the community - providing numerous opportunities for volunteering (Meals on Wheels, Hands on Greenville, Habitat for Humanity, United Way, etc.)

    Cons

    Because of the company's size, one tends to get "pigeon-holed" into a specific job duty, specifically for women. It can be challenging to get male supervisors to promote women into lead positions.

    I have been working at Fluor

    Pros

    - Compensation & benefits are good and comparable to the industry
    - Training and professional development is encouraged and supported whenever possible
    - Motivated coworkers
    - Every other Friday off for most office employees
    - Opportunities to operate within a global arena
    - Integrity is a priority for employees at all levels
    - Good vacation time

    Cons

    - Due to the size of the company, it can be difficult to influence change - especially when driven from the ground up
    - Despite regular increases in salary and diverse opportunities with increasing levels of responsibility, increase in job title is not as frequent in some cases

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Especially during times of large scale organizational change, the highest level of leadership can appear disconnected from the 'front line' workforce. The opportunity to provide feedback and offer input that may be incorporated into strategic decisions would go a long way in helping all employees feel more in control of their own professional futures.

    I have been working at Fluor full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working at Fluor is the best place to learn and grow to your full potential. The training opportunities are abundant and the ability to move up is available to the employee. If you work hard and have a good attitude good things will happen for you. Great benefits and work life balance. The company is consistently reinventing itself to remain competitive and gain market share. Strongest core values you will find in any industry.

    Cons

    Occasionally the business can be impacted by the cycles in the economy but if you are a good employee they will keep you. Especially if you are willing to travel to stay employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to make us a household name again. I don't like it when I tell people where I work and they have never heard of us.

    I have been working at Fluor

    Pros

    Competitors seek talent from Fluor because they know how poorly they treat people, so there is life after Fluor.
    It's easy to shine since they are so behind the times.

    Cons

    A level of undeserved arrogance in so many long time employees who cover each others backs and cash checks with out delivering any value or results.
    Worst health insurance I've ever seen.
    Good talent is let go while the buddy system keeps the 30 year employees around even though they can't open a laptop without instructions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Taj Mahal in Dallas has no clue. While traveling unnecessarily around the globe, take a few notes and make the right changes.

    Pros

    Fluor provides exceptional training, cross-functional experience, diverse client portfolio, top class technical teams. Many Fluor employees have celebrated over 30 years of service to the company.

    Cons

    Fluor is a large organization, one of the largest EPCM companies in the world. With this, it is not as agile as some smaller competitors, and innovation and change can be harder to achieve.

    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.

    Pros

    They treat employees with respect and generally do not micro-manage you. If you are assigned to a project the pay scale is great.

    Cons

    If you are a local hire you don't get some wonderful perks like employees on job assignment do. Medical Benifits are very expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management needs to be more Pro Active instead of Re Active. Upper Management demands results and does not question how production results are obtained untill an incident occurs.
