    Current Employee - Engineering Technician I - Intern

    I have been working at Fluor as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have the best manager in the world. I should say it. He always give credits to my work. He neither keeps any restrictions nor force me to go in a particular direction.
    Good Pay.
    Endless Opportunities.
    Consider Interns for full time positions.

    Cons

    The background departments are really confusing. You need to contact at least 5 people if you had some issue regarding pay roll. etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be something like a Interns meet, so that they can share the knowledge they gained throughout the period.

    I have been working at Fluor

    Pros

    The ability to put 2 thru 10,000 professional individuals together, across the globe, who have never even met, and manage the construction of multi-million to multi-billion dollar construction projects.
    Sound business plan and governance.
    The opportunity for growth utilizing the many mentors available and the Fluor University online learning center.
    The ability to go to different projects and perform in different roles because of the way Fluor utilizes their Project Procedures Manual, PPM, the Project Execution Plan, PEP and the Site Quality Manual.
    Diversity and Inclusion.
    The ability to "cross train" into different areas of expertise.
    Excellent Management programs give provides excellent opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Not so much a con, but if you choose to work "in the field," you will spend your career traveling, both domestic and abroad.
    As we like to call ourselves, the "Traveling Band of Gypsies."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never forget that the least significant job on a project means the world to the person performing that job. To both their self esteem and that of their family.
