    I have been working at Fluor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fluor is a world wide corporation and has a vast knowledge base to work from .... it is great for employees to be able to avail of that . .

    Cons

    The truth about Fluor and many other organizations is that they loose the ability to be able to connect with frontline staff that actually have Client interaction - this is vital for good working relationships so tha both parties get what they need from each other ..

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employees rather than procedures... procedures are not apply to reality at times. .. practicality is needed

    I worked at Fluor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good bosses,great pay.The company is very safety oriented.i would recommend them to anyone seeking employment in southern Ohio

    Cons

    Fluor got their money form DOE and usually due to Obamas lack of funding them,DOE would announce layoffs until they would finally give Fluor what needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and listen to the employees as they know their job better than most supervisors.

    Good Money!!! Depends on who u know, who u are related AND lastly, unfortunately, who you're having relations with

    Cons

    8 out of 10 promotions aren't delegated out because of work ethic, it's about the 3 groups previously mentioned above!!!Open Door Policy...NOT!!! SNAKES for the most part at THIS particular site!

    Advice to Management

    MGMT SHOULD BE CHOSEN A BIT MORE CAREFULLY, LOTS OF ANCIENT CITIZENS MAKING BOO-KOO $$$, WITH IDEA WTH IS GOING ON, FOREMANS, THO...TUH

    I worked at Fluor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of exposure and opportunity to take on new challenges. International opportunities abound. Ability to "stretch" yourself. Comfortable working environment.

    Cons

    Salaries below market. Personal and family life take second place. You can get laid off easily if there is no project work available.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing.

    I worked at Fluor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    9 day fortnight. There really is no other pro. Salary is average.

    Cons

    Expected to give your life to the company. Expected to be at your desk before 7:00 am, and not leave until after 7:00 pm. Managers are not trained. And nepotism is rife.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job and manage. Give employees some responsibility. Micro managing everything is not productive.
