I worked at Fluor full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The company does a good job but overall spends way to much money

Cons

Houston office is the worst, too many clicks at work , I mean it. if you are not part of it, better to just leave, have to butter up the bosses to succeed, many consider that normal these days. office conditions worst ever. lined up like phone operators with no privacy. stupid idea to save money, when they waste so much on other things

Advice to ManagementAdvice

act like managers, do something besides just get along.

    I have been working at Fluor full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large company, strong emphasis on procedures and practices, if you are in the right network, it can be very lucrative.

    Cons

    Extremely old school, run by people who grew up in 1950's and still think computers are the root cause of many inefficiencies.
    One example is that they still block you from accessing gmail from work. Which is in fact counter productive. Coz almost everyone now has smart phones so people use their mobile devices to surf, which actually takes longer, so if the management was smarter then would actually modify the IT policies.
    Also, there is no importance on real tech advancement, they tried developing an inhouse social network, to keep people engaged, but the systems are so antiquated that everything runs at a glacial pace.
    Fluor was one of the biggest companies lobbying to Microsoft to keep XP alive, even after Microsoft stopped support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to make relevant changes, just getting an inhouse social network doesnt make Fluor cool, you need to change at a much deeper level.

    I worked at Fluor full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fluor is a very big company but there are opportunities to make a career at Fluor for one willing to put in the extra effort. Good training, varied projects and assignments. Oversees assignments also available if you let it known you are interested. Benefits are good - especially the TOWP (time off with pay). Generous TOWP and you get to keep it and roll over each year whatever is not used.

    Cons

    Negatives are also a result of being big. You must network with lots of people and get to know the management. Volunteer for assignments, charity events, etc. Opportunities sometimes require one being in the right place at the right time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on mid level employees who have 10-20 years at Fluor. They still have plenty of time to contribute and know more about managing than the 5-10 year young employees who are being shoved through to management positions before they are ready.
