    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.

    Best Company ever!!!

    Engineering Technician I - Intern (Current Employee)

    ProsI have the best manager in the world. I should say it. He always give credits to my work. He neither keeps any restrictions nor force me to go in a particular direction.
    Good Pay.
    Endless Opportunities.
    Consider Interns for full time positions.

    ConsThe background departments are really confusing. You need to contact at least 5 people if you had some issue regarding pay roll. etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be something like a Interns meet, so that they can share the knowledge they gained throughout the period.

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

    Preservation Manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe ability to put 2 thru 10,000 professional individuals together, across the globe, who have never even met, and manage the construction of multi-million to multi-billion dollar construction projects.
    Sound business plan and governance.

    Diversity and Inclusion.
    The ability to "cross train" into different areas of expertise.
    Excellent Management programs give provides excellent opportunities for advancement.

    ConsNot so much a con, but if you choose to work "in the field," you will spend your career traveling, both domestic and abroad.
    As we like to call ourselves, the "Traveling Band of Gypsies."

    Advice to Senior ManagementNever forget that the least significant job on a project means the world to the person performing that job. To both their self esteem and that of their family.

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