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

    Pros

    Good salary - competitive benefits - encouraging of associates to become involved in the community - providing numerous opportunities for volunteering (Meals on Wheels, Hands on Greenville, Habitat for Humanity, United Way, etc.)

    Cons

    Because of the company's size, one tends to get "pigeon-holed" into a specific job duty, specifically for women. It can be challenging to get male supervisors to promote women into lead positions.

    Current Employee - Human Resources in Greenville, SC

    I have been working at Fluor

    Pros

    - Compensation & benefits are good and comparable to the industry
    - Training and professional development is encouraged and supported whenever possible
    - Motivated coworkers
    - Every other Friday off for most office employees
    - Opportunities to operate within a global arena
    - Integrity is a priority for employees at all levels
    - Good vacation time

    Cons

    - Due to the size of the company, it can be difficult to influence change - especially when driven from the ground up
    - Despite regular increases in salary and diverse opportunities with increasing levels of responsibility, increase in job title is not as frequent in some cases

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Especially during times of large scale organizational change, the highest level of leadership can appear disconnected from the 'front line' workforce. The opportunity to provide feedback and offer input that may be incorporated into strategic decisions would go a long way in helping all employees feel more in control of their own professional futures.

    I have been working at Fluor full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working at Fluor is the best place to learn and grow to your full potential. The training opportunities are abundant and the ability to move up is available to the employee. If you work hard and have a good attitude good things will happen for you. Great benefits and work life balance. The company is consistently reinventing itself to remain competitive and gain market share. Strongest core values you will find in any industry.

    Cons

    Occasionally the business can be impacted by the cycles in the economy but if you are a good employee they will keep you. Especially if you are willing to travel to stay employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to make us a household name again. I don't like it when I tell people where I work and they have never heard of us.

    Pros

    Competitors seek talent from Fluor because they know how poorly they treat people, so there is life after Fluor.
    It's easy to shine since they are so behind the times.

    Cons

    A level of undeserved arrogance in so many long time employees who cover each others backs and cash checks with out delivering any value or results.
    Worst health insurance I've ever seen.
    Good talent is let go while the buddy system keeps the 30 year employees around even though they can't open a laptop without instructions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Taj Mahal in Dallas has no clue. While traveling unnecessarily around the globe, take a few notes and make the right changes.

    Former Employee - HSE Manager

    I worked at Fluor full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were good. Because I am the "undesired" gender my pay lacked. Paid less than those I was supervising!

    Cons

    I was mommy tracked and treated HORRIBLY. I was almost fired for going to see my dying father - and only giving a weeks notice that I was making the trip. The issue was that I didn't ask for my internal client's permission - even though I was an exempt professional with over 6 months time off available. That's another thing, while the TOWP policy is good - don't dare try and use any of it.

    When I finally found my means of escape I was threatened with my job if I dare interview with anyone else and they find out. I had no contract. When I complained to HR they even admitted that "these guys need to learn we don't own people."

    Horrible horrible horrible abusive snide good ole boy company. AVOID!

    Pros

    A lot of my co-workers and friends got a chance to work with very updated equipment. The job challenge was all ways very intense at times.

    Cons

    Safety was the top priority in the work place at all times .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The managers were all ways on their toes . Ready to answer any questions about your job or any thing that you had problems with.
