    First job out of college

    Associate Design Engineer III (Former Employee) Aliso Viejo, CA

    ProsThis was a great first job out of college. They were able to provide good training and real life experience. The pay was very good for a first job.

    ConsThe work comes and goes and when things are good they are very good and when they are bad you get laid off. You figure they pay you extra to compensate for the fact that they may get rid of you after your project is over.

    Great place

    Senior Specialist, Material Management (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsFlex-Time, every other Friday off, great community relations program

    ConsJob Security is based on the current demand for primarily Oil & Gas, if demand goes down you might not have a project to work on....to me, that is kind of scary

    Great Company

    Procurement Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsFluor has provided a wide range of opportunities for me though out my career. For a large Fortune 500 company, Fluor has provided a flexible work-life balance environment and encourages personal growth. Any cons are outweighed by the pros.

    ConsBeing a leader in our industry, Fluor takes on some of the biggest, most complexed projects in the world. If you are part of project execution, there are many challenging obstacles and the stress that is associated. However, I find myself never bored.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize talent and do a better job retaining that talent.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company

    Marketing (Current Employee) Irvine, CA

    ProsGreat salary and benefits. Ability to work on projects around the globe.

    ConsNeed to be mobile to grow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork-life balance and a formal program for mobile employees outside of IT would help us to compete better when recruiting vs. our competition. Would also increase more women at Fluor.

    Good

    Human Resources Specialist (Former Employee)

    ProsCompensation , vacation time. Employees work together as a team. Takes pride in safety.

    ConsManagement was not trained and those that have been at the company for years have to train new management on what to do. Inventory of supplies was limited or not available at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote from within and not have employees with the potential to progress in the company train new hired upper management

    Great company with great pay and benefits.

    Human Resources/IR Tech II (Current Employee) Greenville, SC

    ProsRelaxed working environment, always chaning directions for the betterment of the organization. Great benifits, off every other Friday, accumulated TOWP at a very fair rate, flexible with shcedules to meet the needs of employees and home life.

    ConsLacking in communication effecting employees, too many click groups instead of team players. Growth depending on the department you work in. Stacking of team based on personal relationships instead of skill set and professionalism.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would like to see management choose their leaders using a different criteria. Too many leaders say the right thing to their managers and do not follow through to the team. Would like to see upper management visit each department and get a true working knowledge of our daily activities.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
