    Senior Manager Information Technology

    Senior Manager Information Technology (Current Employee) Greenville, SC

    ProsVery good salary and the employees around the globe were a pleasure to work with.

    ConsThere was too much politics that was factored into career progression especially in mid to senior management. Too many unqualified individuals ended up in management positions. A lot of these managers didn't understand how to lead.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBusiness Line executive management needs to be flushed out and replaced with competent execs who care about their employees and the preserving the companies history and longevity rather than focusing on their own salaries and empires.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Management

    Senior Executive Assistant (Current Employee) Sugar Land, TX

    ProsThey have incorporated great training program until they cut the budget. They do promote young professionals.

    ConsThe management style needs tons of improvement, and they are way top heavy on officers in the Houston office.

    Management tends to forget where they came from and instead act as if they 'have arrived'. They quickly lose sight of important things in company progress like accountability, integrity, value, etc.

    They have programs for advancing the young professionals; however, much of their advancement, in a timely manner, is based on who they have as a mentor; and most of the time, that can be to the young professionals detriment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet the employees do a 360 on management.

    Small offices suffer from turnover and poor management.

    Associate Design Engineer (Former Employee) Dublin, CA

    ProsFluor only works on big projects, so you may be working on very interesting, complicated projects that have a TIC in the billions. Their internal website/forum: KOL is very useful and used by many employees.

    ConsSmaller offices suffer from little training, people development than the large campuses like Greenville, Houston, Irving, etc...
    The smaller offices generally have weak management. It's not necessarily the managers' fault but most of the managers are just very senior engineers with little training or interest in leading their groups.

    Training opportunities at the smaller offices are few as you are usually always working 100% on projects. If you aren't on a job, you aren't considered profitable for the company.

    Health care premiums, are covered at a lower percentage versus other companies.
