    I worked at Fluor full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    payed well and I enjoyed the experience. liked 4 tens. excellent internal intranet system and information base.

    Cons

    not real sure what I was there for but they must have been required to have a PE on site by contract. never got a performance evaluation. Seems harder to get your foot back in the door after a layoff but I'm sure the economy had something to do with that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to your employees about rehire potential

    Current Employee - Project Controls Specialist III in Sugar Land, TX

    I have been working at Fluor full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great location, Flex time is nice with every other Friday off, hours over 40 are paid, very professional company that does things the right way and has an excellent reputation in the EPC industry. I spent 6 years there and enjoyed it, and would go back if the opportunity was right.

    Cons

    You must be willing to take field assignments to move up quickly, but that is normal in most EPC companies. Most of the computer systems, company software and hardware are old and outdated. Salaries seemed a bit out of touch with the rest of the industry, but not terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold more town halls on what is going on with the company as far as project prospects, or atleast send company emails somewhat frequently. People don't like to wonder about what their next job will be, or where they will end up next.
