I have been working at Fluor

Pros

they were very forthcoming about the position and what you do. I really liked how the position they were hiring for was not the only one they told me about

Cons

none at the moment. They were very kind and I am hoping I get the chance to work with them some day

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Fluor full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Career Growth,
    -High Income,
    -Clear set of standards and procedures for performing most tasks, Knowledge on Line access for all Engineers (100 years of project experiences and lessons learned shared by all company engineers as a learning tool.)
    -Diversity of experience
    -Challenging
    -Professional
    -Ethical
    -Established

    Cons

    -100% of the time on project, on the road. (No travel home to speak of)
    -Performs more Project over sight managing contractors rather then Self Perform (In the last 2 years Fluor has been moving away from self perform)
    -You are a number and not a person. If not billing hours you are non-existent.
    -No effort on Fluor's part, to transition most employees from project to project. Therefore, if you don't know the right person or persons, you will have large amounts of time between projects without billing hours and loosing income. After 5 weeks "On the Bench" you loose your benefits.
    -Below par home office support for projects in the field they are supporting.
    -Engineers in supporting home office locations have lost their since of Customer Service. Many home office employees do not have the drive or desire to spend extra effort support projects in the field.
    -Several projects have required me to not only perform Project Management and/or Construction Management duties as well as Field Engineering duties but also Design Engineering with Drawings when an under bid project runs out of design engineering hours and the project is approximately 85% complete.
    -Recently the RFI (Request for Information) questions submitted by contactors and/or clients are increasing in numbers and taking much to long to complete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Clearly develop KPI's (Key Performance Indicators) for the plant production, Downtime, Project Management, etc... so that performance is always on everyone's mind and it is obvious weather we are improving, or not improving or weather a project is on schedule and under budget.
    -Utilize all the tools available today to manage whatever is being managed and that the track the team is on is in line with corporate goals.
    -Clearly Communicate
    -Listen and ask questions for conformation of understanding
    -Utilize Leading and Lagging Indicators so as to stay ahead of problems and to verify that corrective actions are having the expected results.
    -Involve the right people on projects needing detailed coordination and planning so as not to impact production and to insure successful projects.
    -Provide proper feedback to team members so as to help generate lessons learned and constant improvement
    -Time Management should be a priority everyday.
    -Develop an agreed upon SOW (Scope of Work) for projects and manage any scope creep using change order management
    -Document daily, weekly, and Monthly progress being sure to point out milestones achieved, issues standing in the way of progress, etc...
