    Pros

    I worked for Fluor for 13 years; if you pay attention and work as a team player, it exceeds the other top EPC firms for which I worked in terms of learning curve on project execution, employee relations and employee/management loyalty. If you don't know how to work as a team player, our division quickly got rid of you through separation or transfer, and some of the personality with whom you work do not make "team work" easy.

    Cons

    Fluor pays near the top, but not at the top of major US EPC firms. Some of its technical experts are lifers who prefer to talk only with each other, sometimes at the expense of project operations. The Construction side out of Greenville and bean-counters in Sugar Land have sometimes had oversize influence on company performance and not in a good way.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your rather talented HR staff; re-institute the Fluor Constructors HR folks onsite to ensure your employees are well cared for.

    Pros

    Very professional people. You're left alone to do your job and they have clear cut information to show you how they want it done.

    Cons

    Like most contract work, you're busy until you're not.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a good job.

    Pros

    Successful company with true commitment to both ethics and safety.

    Cons

    Fluor is a project-based company. Jobs last only until the project ends - often after only a few months or a couple of years. If there is not another job available on a different project, employees are put on LOA without pay. This results in employees leaving the company for other firms or taking jobs in hardship areas to stay employed.

    Pros

    Available training within company. Promotions possible. Travel available. Adequate and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Cliques can be roadblocks to personal growth and promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Consider yourself team members instead of disciplinarians and authoritarians. Upper management should be more aware of project managers' leadership styles on jobsites and do away with cliques, holier than thou attitudes, and tough guy mentalities. Fostering a team is much more valuable and fruitful than whipping the underlings. Fear of being judged harshly and reprimanded unjustly does not produce contented and dedicated employees. It was always very disappointing to witness a jobsite run according to these principles. With this being said, I must add that there are some very good managers with excellent skills, values and work ethics within the Fluor organization.

    Pros

    This 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.

    Cons

    The 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Job 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

    Pros

    Fluor 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.

    Cons

    Being 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 Management

    Recognize talent and do a better job retaining that talent.
