    I have been working at Fluor

    Pros

    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.

    I worked at Fluor as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Located in California. The work environment is pleasant and clean. People are nice and friendly. I met the nicest people there.

    Cons

    Traditionalist old company, absolute resistance to changes. Very difficult IT environment to work. I met some of the most obnoxious, rude, and ill-suited IT managers that I have ever worked with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company needs a new attitude make over.

    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

    Pros

    Big projects. Nothing else but i must have twenty words here for acceptance.

    Cons

    Low salary. Low responsibility. No appreciation for people with strong experience AND strong educations. Intellect means nothing here. People in senior positions without basic understanding of finance, economic, and believe it or not, engineering. Sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire educated people AND keep them!

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Extremely 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Houston 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 ManagementAdvice

    act like managers, do something besides just get along.

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

    Pros

    The only reason to work for Fluor is for the compensation

    Cons

    The work environment is all very small cubicles the size of a small closet in a hallway. This is even the case for managers and consultants. There is no distinction. The other aspect is that they swing between massive 40% plus layoffs followed a few years later by gigantic hiring. It is common for they to make you stay at home without pay if there isn't a contract to charge to. If you are over the age of 50 you have no career path. All of the emphasis is on the younger workers. The younger people must realize that there is no career path after around 45.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about who the important knowledge workers are and give them a professional environment. Not a desk in the hallway.

    I worked at Fluor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company they sent me to as an outside contractor was terriffic. Extremely nice people to work with especially the AVP Site & Facility and Purchasing Manager.

    Cons

    The supervisor I worked with unfortunately lied and I found out about it and I was fired for it because I went over his head to find out the truth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The supervisor should have told me the truth in the first place that I was not getting a raise that year and would have been accepted without question.
