    Pros

    Fluor treats their employees like a big family. I love the inclusive culture.

    Cons

    Cyclical just like any EPC.

    Advice to Management

    Management should continue to promote and develop top talent. The more recognition that is given to younger engineers for their hard work, the more motivated they will be.

    Pros

    Excellent pay, large high profile projects, opportunity to travel to domestic & international jobs. Many locations to work from with offices worldwide.

    Cons

    No projects means no job. Large design offices don't support all business lines, so employees tend to get stuck in a "silo" working for different business lines, making it difficult to expand into new business.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to retain employees during slow periods. More focus should be placed on family-work balance beyond what the law requires.

    People oriented. They care about their employees and offer a good work atmosphere

    Sometimes when on assignments you feel disengaged with the rest of the company.

    Pros

    -Great for single or married individuals
    -Long term career if you work hard
    -Great people to work with
    -Volunteering is good (you should strongly consider doing, looks good on you)

    Cons

    -Depending on your skills, you may not go farther than two levels
    -Huge company so if you have ideas, you may need to go through the proper channels
    -Huge gap between the millennials and the baby-boomers; Gen X's have it tough sometimes managing both sides if not familiar with the personalities of each

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you thank your employees and in some sections of the company, work-life balance is more important than you think.

    Pros

    Compensation overall was average. Opportunities existed abroad, if one knew the correct people to contact.

    Cons

    I feel promotions and filling of positions within were not fair. Many educated, knowledgeable people were overlooked and feel between the cracks. I also felt there was no benefit to gaining a formal education at moments when up against others that were in the Good Ol' Boy network; very frustrating. Posted jobs were not matched with employees by HR, as should be. Senior management picked whom they wanted. I feel half the jobs posted on-line were a waste to apply for, knowing the positions were likely already filled by someone's buddy or relative. Work/life balance was difficult with a family for those that weren't in the home offices.

    Advice to Management

    Let HR do their job.
