Pros

Jobs are large and last a long time. You can make a good living. Salary and benefits above average for market in Oil & Gas. International, with large uplifts was available till downturn and

Cons

Limited training for senior staff. Age sensitive Management ceiling for the non-political, promote non-challenging. Outsourcing international: Indian and Philippine offices now 1-1 in productivity. Client awareness of cost per unit of work parity with non-US offices threatens high salary jobs in US offices and international sites. Buy back employees when needed, excessively use LOA and then terminate if no high return projects won.

Advice to Management

Realize there is a 20+ year void in the EPC and EPCM market labor pool, world wide - all the good kids went to IT and finance. Elevate the knowledge and skills of mid/senior managers, to keep them current. Increase the productivity of US personnel. Keep trained staff employed till you can train some new talented professionals. Protect and promote quality, not cronies. Challenge is good for a managers, keeps them on their toes. (all the way to the CEO) Learn your clients, don't let staff assume they know better for the market. Find some common ground, especially in the FSU. Change minimum profit philosophy to keep quality in house. Take lump sum and GMP construction only work to improve the quality of construction management staff. Remember the values that Bob Fluor held dear. Stop ignoring your heritage. It will work in today's risk adverse markets.
