Cons

Lack of diversity
Risk averse organization where the industry demand risk taking capabilities
Compensation is below market

Advice to ManagementAdvice

"The EPC industry is an easy business, therefore we can recuit the people we like (no diversity). " In reality, easy business do not make a lot of money. I strongly suggest complicating the business (solving more complex problems) by engaging talented diversity.

    Pros

    some challenging assignments
    good salary
    flexible with taking time off

    Cons

    cyclical business - expect to be laid off in the downturn and plan for it
    excessive travel for some positions
    no training
    archaic and inefficient work processes - very frustrating at times
    resistant to change
    after several projects work gets repetitive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop the massive staffing up / laying off or at least be honest with employees and stop the "people are our greatest asset" BS
    give existing employees, especially those targeted for layoffs or LOA first priority for other jobs within the company

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Fluor

    Pros

    Ability to work on many different projects, typically international. Many opportunities for travel abroad. Competitive salaries and benefits for E&C companies. Fluor has taken good steps to help retain new graduates and develop better training/ growth into the corporation. Fluor is a large company with many different career opportunities. Generally good work/ family balance. 9/80 work weeks are great.

    Cons

    The E&C industry will always fluctuate with the market conditions, which can be difficult during downturns. Travel/ assigments can be difficult on family life. Working within a large organization can be frustrating as changes can come very slow, if at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to push training and development of new graduates to help retention and continue to look for new ways to attract and retain quality employees.
