    do not practice what they preach

    Design Engineer (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

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

    ConsHouston 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 Senior Managementact like managers, do something besides just get along.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Career opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFluor 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.

    ConsNegatives 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 Senior ManagementSpend 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.

    I was amazed.

    Operations (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsGlobal name brand upon which to grow the business. Many people in place that are poised to perform; all that is needed is some organized direction.

    ConsThere is a desperate need for senior management having real experience. Many meetings, initiatives and plane flights with little substance of effective management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementASAP, acquire people to fill key positions whom have real experience, not just time in the industry spent watching others work. There is a desperate need for people who have the ability and willingness to 'get their hands dirty'.

    Great Company. Bring your Passport.

    Construction Engineering Manager (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsLots of Travel- international assignments usually include lucrative compensation packages

    ConsLots of Travel- not so much personal time to foster relationships outside of work

    Advice to Senior ManagementThese guys have been building plants all over the world for 100 years; they don't need my advice.

    Dynamic Work Enviroment

    Associate Process Engineer (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsOne of the main reasons I love Fluor is for the flexible work hours. Other reasons include the numerous opportunities to find what you love to do-- Several types of projects to work on.

    ConsJob security is not great here to be honest, let alone anywhere else. Very unstable market for Fluor to find jobs for their employees, when they are no projects to work on- no job for you!
