Pros

Very large paycheck. If you love the military hierarchy, you will love this company!

Cons

Work/life balance? 12 hour days, seven days a week, 45 minutes to vet to work, 45 minutes to get back from work, no paid lunch = ~8 hours a day to shower, sleep, eat, anything else you need to do.

Advice to Management

Actually stand up for your employees that come to you with issues

    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 Management

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

  2. do not practice what they preach

    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 Management

    act like managers, do something besides just get along.
