    Pros

    Fluor contribution to employee wellness, education and career advancement are unparalleled in this industry. Compensation and benefits are also exceptional.

    Cons

    Downturn in certain industries can lead to ROF (reduction of forces). Some company work practices are designed for mega projects and make it extremely hard to be competitive on certain small project opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fit for purpose application of operating practices and execution activities must be implemented to insure future project awards and maintain work load to support retainage of superior employees.

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Greenville, SC

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

    Pros

    1) Opportunity for growth
    2) Lots of training opportunities available; including CBT
    3) Many opportunities to travel within US and overseas
    4) Competitive salaries and great benefits (although getting less and less)
    5) Interesting work
    6) Great people to work with

    Cons

    1) In the bad times, not much security for anyone
    2) Sometimes you have to go where the work is to keep your job
    3) Not enough sharing of work between offices. Many times, when one office is going through a down turn and another is booming, they will hire new employees instead of sharing work within US offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perform more oversight into the health of all offices. Mandate work sharing between offices to keep the valuable empoyees working. Place a much bigger emphasis on keeping the good talent. We, as a company, train way too many people who use this added talent to the benefit of our competitors.

    Pros

    High priority is placed on employee development. A great place to work if you are a self motivated individual. If not, also a great place to work. Lots of resources for development whether it is technical or non technical. Lots of opportunity to advance your career.

    Cons

    Work location is not as central as I would prefer. Commute is long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Keep doing what you are doing by making Fluor a fantastic place to work and keeping your employees happy. Also, we would all like to see more self-perform work here in the US for construction, rather than the CM model.
