    I worked at Fluor

    Pros

    during y time there I worked under a specific project project and management team and i thoroughly enjoyed it. It was more that work and coworkers it was a family.

    Cons

    Projects come to an end, managers move on new ones come in and do not necessarily embrace the company culture the same ways. It is unfortunate for the long time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees, utilize the HR practices in place to assist you with retention.

    Well run but rigid structure and frequent layoffs

    Former Intern - Process Engineer in Sugar Land, TX
    Former Intern - Process Engineer in Sugar Land, TX

    I worked at Fluor as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The structure is great - very well run. The facilities are great. Safety is held in high esteem and is a part of the culture. Good benefits and has 9-80 schedule.

    Cons

    The biggest thing is job security - you feel like every month some major project could be canceled and would cause lots of layoffs. I was only an intern but many full-time employees made it known that job security was a daily concern for them. Not much focus on cross communication between departments.

    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.

    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.
