    I have been working at Fluor full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Need to be mobile to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-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.

    I worked at Fluor as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Fluor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed 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.

    Cons

    Lacking 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 ManagementAdvice

    I 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.
