    Pros

    As a global company, you have the opportunity to take your career in many directions and even to far-flung global locations, if you desire. Being a part of Fluor can open other doors as well.

    Cons

    As with many older, large enterprises, there is a certain amount of bureaucracy that you have to deal with. This can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fluor tends to think of IT as very unique, and we create problems for ourselves by being overly cautious. We need to be more agile in adopting technology.

    Pros

    I am just staring, but have had a great interview process and looking forward to the future with a large company.

    Cons

    The location in Sugarland is not close to the customer. The customers have moved North of Houston to the Spring and Woodlands area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wonderful and dedicated management team. The interview process was effective and timely. The HR team has been very help and warm.

    Profesionalism. Safety. The support next work is outstanding. There is never a shortage of persons to call for help. Ability to Transfer.

    Very heavy on documentation and paperwork. A very large corporation looses employee's in the numbers. Solid site managment is needed to overcome it size

    Former Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Sugar Land, TX

    I worked at Fluor

    Pros

    I enjoyed the time I worked at Fluor. Provided me with projects that kept me challenged and always learning. The company provided lots of opportunities for training etc. Fluor so far has had the best benefits, vacation, and compensation package I have had. I am disappointed I no longer work for this caliber of a company and highly recommend working for them.

    Cons

    The Fluor Campus I was at was located in Sugar Land, TX (AKA Houston). I did not care for Houston much which lead to me leaving Fluor. Maybe, this is a plus to some just not at all for me.

    Current Employee - IT Operations in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Fluor

    Pros

    Most jobs have a 9/80 work week (every other Friday off).
    Many projects, you're never board.
    Company is slowly implementing full-time teleworking.
    You accrue Time Off with Pay (TOwP) that's used for all time off. If you do not take allot of time off, you are able to take the TOwP as a payment when you leave / retire.

    Cons

    Jobs can change constantly.
    You move your physical office many, many times. This is due to new projects, etc...
    Health benefits could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very good considering the size of the company. Would like to see them create programs to validate direction with people at the worker level. Too many levels of management can create a disconnected environment for good business decisions
