    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.

    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.

    I have been working at Fluor full-time

    Pros

    Fluor provides exceptional training, cross-functional experience, diverse client portfolio, top class technical teams. Many Fluor employees have celebrated over 30 years of service to the company.

    Cons

    Fluor is a large organization, one of the largest EPCM companies in the world. With this, it is not as agile as some smaller competitors, and innovation and change can be harder to achieve.

    Women welcome IF young, attractive and "docile"

    Former Employee - Anonymous in Greenville, SC
    Former Employee - Anonymous in Greenville, SC

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

    Pros

    There are no goods outweighed by the bad. There are a few really good people, but they are muffled by the good ole boys

    Cons

    Let's see - where should I begin? I was physically and verbally assaulted, harassed, and degraded due to my gender. I was told to wear "attractive clothes" even though I was in a field role, and criticized for my weight.

    A young woman in charge of one department's intranet - who spends an inordinate amount of company time in the gym, wears tight, revealing clothes, bats her eyes and flirts, yet has no education or experience - was put in a corner office while others with much more education, experience and tenure with the company were relegated to the cube farm to take orders from her highness. It was obvious why she was put in the position she was in.

    Many men and woman are in positions they are neither qualified or capable for simply because they know the right egos to stroke.

    Complaining to HR only put me on the short list out the door as a potential trouble maker and litigant.

    I wish I could say it was one department or SBU but it was all of them. I was NEVER allowed to work in oil and gas and was only given the no overtime, low per diem projects that the favorites didn't want - even when I was requested by clients.

    Ladies, if you are young, attractive and have questionable morals and ethics - why you could go very very far at Fluor!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother -- the boys club will never change. It's not the 60's -- treat professionals with dignity and respect.

    Pros

    Great benefits and you are in charge of your career growth.

    Cons

    Behind in technology, resistance to change by long-time employees causes Fluor to remain behind, many managers are "old school" and require face time in the office (don't embrace working remotely) even though there is a policy on telecommuting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update technology, force change in the middle management ranks to become more progressive.

    Pros

    9/80 Schedule, Good Benefits, Flex Schedule.

    Cons

    Good old boys club. If you're a minority, and a woman in this company. Good luck to you. I was constantly harassed and my management didn't do anything about it and neither did HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to train and be a team player and HUMAN.
