    First job out of college

    Associate Design Engineer III (Former Employee) Aliso Viejo, CA

    ProsThis was a great first job out of college. They were able to provide good training and real life experience. The pay was very good for a first job.

    ConsThe work comes and goes and when things are good they are very good and when they are bad you get laid off. You figure they pay you extra to compensate for the fact that they may get rid of you after your project is over.

    Great place

    Senior Specialist, Material Management (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsFlex-Time, every other Friday off, great community relations program

    ConsJob Security is based on the current demand for primarily Oil & Gas, if demand goes down you might not have a project to work on....to me, that is kind of scary

    Great Company

    Procurement Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsFluor has provided a wide range of opportunities for me though out my career. For a large Fortune 500 company, Fluor has provided a flexible work-life balance environment and encourages personal growth. Any cons are outweighed by the pros.

    ConsBeing a leader in our industry, Fluor takes on some of the biggest, most complexed projects in the world. If you are part of project execution, there are many challenging obstacles and the stress that is associated. However, I find myself never bored.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize talent and do a better job retaining that talent.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsSafety programs, Organization, benefits and management.

    ConsSalaries are too low for entry enigineers. Promotions are hard to get.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImplement a better incentive program for incoming new engineers and train them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Working at Fluor was a great experience. I worked with smart people. There were no slackers.

    Senior Developer (Former Employee) Greenville, SC

    ProsThe best thing about working with Fluor is stability. I worked there for 14 years as a CONTRACTOR!

    ConsThey used to have some perks available to contractors, but they quick that over 10 years ago.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring back some perks for the Contractors. I used to love going to the July 4th celebration. You no longer invite the contractors who are a huge part of the success of the company.

    Not a challenging job for the educated

    Project Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsBig projects. Nothing else but i must have twenty words here for acceptance.

    ConsLow salary. Low responsibility. No appreciation for people with strong experience AND strong educations. Intellect means nothing here. People in senior positions without basic understanding of finance, economic, and believe it or not, engineering. Sad.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire educated people AND keep them!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
