Career opportunities

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Fluor full-time for more than 10 years

ProsFluor is a very big company but there are opportunities to make a career at Fluor for one willing to put in the extra effort. Good training, varied projects and assignments. Oversees assignments also available if you let it known you are interested. Benefits are good - especially the TOWP (time off with pay). Generous TOWP and you get to keep it and roll over each year whatever is not used.

ConsNegatives are also a result of being big. You must network with lots of people and get to know the management. Volunteer for assignments, charity events, etc. Opportunities sometimes require one being in the right place at the right time.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time on mid level employees who have 10-20 years at Fluor. They still have plenty of time to contribute and know more about managing than the 5-10 year young employees who are being shoved through to management positions before they are ready.

I worked as a Treasury Analyst Intern.

Treasury Analyst Intern (Former Employee)
Irving, TX

I worked at Fluor as an intern for less than a year

ProsThey have great benefits, even for full time interns. They also pay their interns which is great!

ConsFluor has a strict hierarchy that can make it difficult to communicate with senior management.

Great Company. Bring your Passport.

Construction Engineering Manager (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

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

ProsLots of Travel- international assignments usually include lucrative compensation packages

ConsLots of Travel- not so much personal time to foster relationships outside of work

Advice to Senior ManagementThese guys have been building plants all over the world for 100 years; they don't need my advice.

Dynamic Work Enviroment

Associate Process Engineer (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Fluor full-time for less than a year

ProsOne of the main reasons I love Fluor is for the flexible work hours. Other reasons include the numerous opportunities to find what you love to do-- Several types of projects to work on.

ConsJob security is not great here to be honest, let alone anywhere else. Very unstable market for Fluor to find jobs for their employees, when they are no projects to work on- no job for you!

33 years continuous employment. Then laid off.

Director (Former Employee)
Sugar Land, TX

I worked at Fluor full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGlobal environment and a lot of opportunity to learn and stretch yourself professionally. Every assignment, foreign and domestic, prepared me for the next assignment.
The 33 years of valuable experience helped me land another significant opportunity with a larger more prestigious multi-national corporation.

ConsYou have to be sure that you always have your CV updated and "out there". Do not rely on the standard Fluor CV. It is useless in the job world. Go ahead and market yourself just in case something happens so that you are not unemployed for a longer than required time. When you get the lay off notice it is generally only two weeks or immediate depending on your role.
There is some significant back stabbing that goes on in the office culture. People will crawl over you and lie to make sure that they continue to try to climb the ladder. Significant lack of ethical standards abounds. You have to watch out for yourself all of the time and remember that you really do own your destiny.

Advice to Senior ManagementThanks very much for all of the experience and many years of opportunities. You now work for me on a very high profile Super Project with a major global corporation.
