    Pros

    There was nothing good. Don't bother looking for any of the good, there is none. There are none for women anyway.

    Cons

    I was not given the tools to do my job for one. I lugged my own printer, laptop and phone to jobs and they wouldn't even provide a token ID to get into the intranet! Cost a lousy $5 a month and said no. Mind you I was in a professional position, with required reports each month that required company intranet access. I was denied every bit of training I asked for as well. Now, you would think that I was a bump on the log, to fill a gender quota (that's how I was treated), but when I needed some time off to see my dying father it was -- "oh no, you can't take time off." I was almost fired when I basically said, "I have 10 weeks of vacation available, because you never let me take time off. I can get another job, I can't get another dad." The favoritism, the nepotism, the discrimination against those who are educated and ambitious are qualities that are embraced -- not rebuked in any way -- at Fluor. I hate what they did to my career and my life.

    Pros

    They will pay you good sometimes even great when the market is up

    Cons

    They will kick out at the first chance they get if they don't have projects. You should be related to top management or have a Godfather/Godmother to keep your job or get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Keep good employees based on performance and not relation. Stop nepotism that is plaguing the organisation

    Pros

    No Supervisor on site, make up time is a plus

    Cons

    No incentives to employees. You can work hard while others don't and they get paid more than you. Supervisor and managers don't even care.

    Advice to Management

    Do not abandon your employees who work hard everyday.

    Pros

    Great systems and tools with hard working project teams. Leadership seems to have forgotten how they make money.

    Cons

    Too many EMT,s and VP and they seem to take care of themselves. Record profits always being told, but when pay raises come out for the little guys always seems to be a downturn in the market. Wonder if the vp bonuses reflected that too?

    Advice to Management

    Start planning for the future.......your EMT friend will retire soon along with you and nobody left to do the work.

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good. Above market average. Nice campus and awesome coworkers who work together to handle enormous workloads while being understaffed.

    Cons

    Company current culture is profit over people. The current executives have created an environment where you are simply a number to be discarded in favor of shipping work overseas and increasing their own profits at the expense of employees and clients.

    Advice to Management

    Start thinking about your people AND your clients instead of trying to trick them into paying more for less....before you run this once great company into the ground.

    Pros

    Ability to travel and network

    Cons

    It seems management is more concerned with frequent flyer miles and perks than they are with results.

    Advice to Management

    How much money did you spend this year to rent condos and attend the Masters? Why not use that money for employees instead of bar tabs and gold clubs.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Excellent compensation, good benefits, at least you are paid to give your life to this place.

    Cons

    Lots of dead wood, good old boy system in full force. You can be a total IDIOT but if your parent, spouse or friend is in a Director, HR or PM position, then you have the Golden Ticket. It's no wonder the Greenville, SC campus is a ghost town; they have priced their own selves out of the market with all of the overhead and the "that's the way we've always done it" attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the arrogant attitude and the constant story of a "huge backlog" of work to your stockholders. And you expect your project workload to pickup in what century?

    Management has to change. A big body shop with contract employees

    Advice to Management

    One of the old guy who walks around the building all the time thinks he is permanent and his college temporary.
