    I have no problems with management at Fluor, when management takes the time to work with you personally it does not get any better than that.

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

    Pros

    Fluor is a great place to work. Wonderful benefits and great people. I highly recommend working here. Global Construction company with good job security. Sound leaders.

    Cons

    My particular reason for leaving the company was lack of a challenge in my position and office "politics "after my promotion. (A common occurence, I hear from some women...why? Jealousy.) I also was offered a better offer in the same field with another company for a $12 thousand increase in salary! Make sure you investigate job market prior to settling on wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When innovating a position and placing an employee in a management role, insure they are qualified to manage and properly guide the employee in their new position. Also as a member of upper management, your responsibility is to have an honest overview of what is actually happening in your absence. One csnnot simply rely upon "perceptions".

    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.

    I have been working at Fluor

    Pros

    Projects are exciting at times

    Cons

    Management needs to hire better talent

  11. Well run but rigid structure and frequent layoffs

    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.
