    Pros

    Latest Management team is working to improve overall performance and work environment. Weekly Pay, Compensation is fair. Insurance is offered, but is expensive. 401K match is offered.

    Cons

    Difficult work environment, relationship with customer is adversarial, office conditions leave much to be desired, union workforce has a poor relationship with management, no training or workforce development offered, high turnover among management.

    Advice to Management

    Improve customer relations, improve employee relations, hire adequate staff to perform work functions, retain workforce, develop and train workforce, streamline work flow processes.

    Pros

    Freedom to perform the job up to a certain point.

    Cons

    Lack of information and direction from management. Left to find out the job description on your own. Lack of support from management. Forced to constantly ask for contract requirements from management due to unclear guidelines.

    Advice to Management

    Be more specific and more supportive with job descriptions and guidelines. Management seems to be strictly reactive not proactive.

    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 Management

    Learn how to train and be a team player and HUMAN.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    Hire educated people AND keep them!

    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 Management

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

    Good People work here, senior management doesn't listen to them.

    Cons

    We've been doing it this way for years, we're not going to change now.

    Advice to Management

    Use the diverse talent you have hired to give you insight to what needs to change.

    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 Management

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